On my desk…

…are some more bird sketches ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not sure yet, if they will end up on tea filters or if I’ll draw them on watercolor paper. I usually sketch my birds on regular printer/copy paper or in my notebook/daily work journal – sitting, flying, looking around… trying different things. Once I’m happy with a ‘pose’, […]

The sparrow

Sparrows are always present – no matter where I lived so far, they’ve always been around. It is a nice feeling to have someone familiar around, when one moves places… Here’s to the sparrow! ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t had enough yet of sketching/painting on tea filter, as you can see ๐Ÿ˜‰ (The light wasn’t the best […]

My work desk…

…changes very often. Sometimes it’s the blue table where I can work together with my kids, other times it’s the messy table downstairs (to paint and print and experiment), or my desk in the office, or simply the kitchen table. Today it’s the kitchen table again. ย If you ask me – the most important part […]

Birds – again (or better: still)

I have drawn more birdies and I thought it would be a shame not to share them. (I hope you enjoy them as much as I do :)) Also it’s time for ‘Glue It Tuesday’ (aimee is hosting! go check out her blog…) and so I used one of my birdies for a postcard again […]

Link Love & Mail Art Received

It was again a wonderful ‘mail art receiving’ week! So let me thank all who sent beautiful art to me recently – it is very special and I’ll treasure all those letters, cards, and goodies. I try to make this also a Link Love post (check out what that means at Tammy’s site: DaisyYellow) Look […]

The Chaffinch on a postcard

I can’t stay away from the birds!ย This time I sketched this little Chaffinch (Bofink in Swedish, Buchfink in German). I sketched him with pencil on a sheet of regular paper with text about Chaffinches. Colored him with watercolor pencils and a fine liner and white ink (Faber-Castell Art Pen & Uni-ball Signo Ink Pen -white). […]

Red Clover on Vintage Tag = freebie

Hej everyone! Thanks for visiting my little space in the Universe ๐Ÿ™‚ Here you go, another freebie for your personal use (no selling or using in collections to be sold, please.) It’s a vintage illustration of Red Clover on vintage ephemera. I used Photoshop to design this little tag. I had my friend Sweet Red […]

WOYWW time

This is not necessarily my work desk, but our ‘blue table’ which is synonym meanwhile for the table with all kinds of stuff on it. I like to sit on this table and add to my journal and my boys’ smash books – especially while they’re sitting at that table too. It’s our favorite spot […]

Peek into my weekly journal

Every week I add bits and pieces – writing, sketches, scrap paper, tags from things I bought or whatever fits the day or week or mood or all together. I haven’t shared pages from my journal in a while. I had the plan to do this regularly, but life is demanding and art comes last […]

ATC – freebie to print

I haven’t added anything to my ‘freebie’ page for quite a while. So here you go, two ATC/ACEO* I made several years ago. I used royalty free vintage botanical prints, painted background papers and many layers of digital stamps. Enjoy! (To download the high-resolution images, please go to my ‘Freebies‘ page and download from there […]
