I like when people share peeks into their scrappy spaces and perhaps even a glimpse or two of their homes, it feels like I get to know them just an itty bit more. So I thought some of you might like to see a peek of a Swedish home, but mind you what I said about all the personal items that are removed so it looks kind of bare.
I'm standing with the kitchen behind me looking out over the living room. The whole wall in front of me and to the the right of me, have windows.
A slight turn to the right and there's my cosy reading nook.
I've made a 360 turn and have the cosy nook behind my back, looking into the kitchen outside of which I stood when photographing the previous 3 pics.
More of the kitchen. Our dining table is directly on the left out of the pic.
Standing in the kitchen looking out towards the balcony. All of the kitchen/dining area/living room is open space.
Our bedroom with all photos and memories removed, very bare.
This is how our spare room looked before I moved in with my scrappy stuff. Instead of the bed, is a cabinet and the computer station. The book shelf is replaced by an L-shaped working table where I stand when I scrap. Under the table are boxes of my stuff and behind me on the right is an IKEA bookshelf with papers and more stuff. I have very very little wall space as you can imagine. Sorry ladies, I won't share my scrappy nook with you, it's too packed and far too messy. ;))
On the subject of messy but in a different way, painterly mess. Several weeks ago when I started experimenting with more texture and mediums, I made a page for the Prima May PPP, here it is; "Apple Harvest":
Have never understood the use of a brayer before the workshop with Nat Kalbach where I had a heureka moment. Here the brown acrylic paint has been rolled out with one.
Modelling paste and misting, pretty straight forward.
The PPP had rich autumnal colours, not quite up my alley but the teal was a very nice pop against the burnished hues.
I found the photo on a French site, cannot even remember which.
Not colours that I normally gravitate towards but can almost feel the crispness of October and rustling of leaves.
Will be back at the weekend with a page from The Color Room, more experimenting going on in that one. And in a few day's time, I'll share my page for CSI. More arty stuff on that one too!
Have a wonderful Friday and start to the weekend! thank you so much for popping by and saying hello!
Toodeloo! xoxox Eila
