Get off the cross we need the wood

About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥


~~ You know that I’ll be smiling ~~

Posted by Ania On Wednesday, April 21, 2010


I posted this little altered group at the Pink Paislee-blog on monday, for the Monochromatic Monday post. Mine’s black/grey, as you can see.


I altered an empty can of honey – as you can see here…  tea1a

…and filled it with honey-infused tea.tea2

Here’s a close-up of the tag, which was embossed with clear-stamps from the Amber Road-collection, and sprayed with glimmer-mist (just don’t use the heat-gun once again to speed up the drying part of the glimmer-mist, as it sort of messed with the embossing somewhat slightly…:p) and gesso. The brad is from the Queen Bee-collection, while the letters are from hm, the Bayberry Cottage one I believe. Bling from Prima. The can itself was decorated with paper from Amber Road and sealed with glossy medium + decorated with pleated ribbon from Bayberry Cottage.tea3Here’s the matching card, made from both Queen-Bee (a punch-out tag) and Amber Road (hand-cut from the cards-paper) tea4  The can was gessoed twice, painted with slightly watered down acrylic paint before being wiped w/soft towel to give the rustic look. The cork-button was stamped (stamp from Amber Road) & decorated with a brad.


Thanks for looking :)

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
