Here is the blog list for day 1, in order:

Here's my summer inspired page - "Tranquility":

This is the base I started with and the acrylic paints, mist and dabber that I used on the chipboard pieces and for stamping on my page.


and here's the finished page

Papers used are, counting from bottom and up;


Prima (Fairy Belle)
Swedish Pion Design (Vintage Garden)
Swedish Pion Design (Vintage Garden)
KaiserCraft (Secret Admirer)
KaiserCraft (On This Day)

The photo was taken by a friend of mine and is from the Swedish west coast.


Blue Fern Studios chipboard Spring Iris - Large that I misted in different hues of green and then swiped randomly with pale blue acrylic paint before dipping into white Flower Soft for fluffy blossom heads, almost like dandelions just before they start floating in the wind like little hot air balloons.

Spring Iris - Large (074875)



I also used the Blue Fern Studios chipboard  Royal Bird Frame that I randomly painted in all the colours shown in the first photo.

The yummo golden netting is a gift from my incredibly talented friend Joyce Lawrence in the US. Thank you so much sweetie!

I'd love for you to go and check out her amazing work CLICK HERE FOR JOYCE'S BLOG 
I promise you will be totally bowled over by her incredible techniques and use of colour!


When I attended one of Finnabair's workshops in Stockholm earlier this year, we used some cool transparent epoxy stickers. You just plop the sticky side onto a patterned paper and cut out the shape. Brilliant custom made pebbles!


Thanks ever so much for your visit! I'll be back on Tuesday, 4 June with a page for Norwegian Skissedilla.

Every day is a new day full of wonderful Summer Delight. Remember to start off your hopping at PaperHaus Magazine.
