Art Journal Page

Inspirations can come from everywhere. For this page in my Art Journal I was inspired by a label of a new t-shirt I bought this summer. It was a little bit crumpled and has a label on it with the statement:
"I am what I am".
On this page I first printed pink and yellow colors with my GelliArts Printing Plate then I cut out a woman from a fashion magazine as a stencil and painted acrylic paint in yellow and red around it.
The rest of the page I did with a variety of fine liners and crayons.

This label I found in a t-shirt I bought this summer - it was the inspiration to this page

Book bag for a teacher

When sewing outside with Vickie I made this book bag for a friend of mine. She is a teacher and needed a really big bag. The fabric was from her - It's like a rough linen.

Sewing Outside

Vickie, my best friend and I took the opportunity of sewing outside. My husband built a extension to our balcony a few years ago so we had plenty of space. This is my favorite place in the warm season. I love this place! It's my studio outside during a period of 6 or 7 month a year - in the case it does not rain...

Vickie's Singer Featherweight - what a cute sewing machine!
