Forensic report

This crusade took the whole month and it could probably continue unless the due date hadn’t arrived. The forensic report  file should include everything there is to know about that person. The hard thing is that at this point I don’t have enough time to think about myself – what I really like, who am I or who I want to be… I did my best. This was the first step in finding myself … I hope … 🙂

This journal is made of one Jewelry catalog that I got last year in Norway – I covered the pages with acrylic paints last April and so it waited till this month.


Still snowing outside, although the days are longer and the sun brighter…

Spring in my heart

It seems that the soul craves colors and if that yearning gets on paper  then you may never be quite sure how this will be resolved …

Initially the paper was covered with tissues, which was then freely coated with acrylics. Then came a moment to look … to follow the lines and colors which the eye distinguished and interpreted  …

For a moment I thought that I will not add more colors …

… But then I found that the idea is to practice, to study different techniques and materials. So I took the photo of it and continued with the colors – now I used some bronze and white pen, metallic- and traditional color pencils …


Is it stubbornness, pride, longing, beauty, voluptuousness, thoughtfulness, or satisfaction or something entirely different  … everyone sees it differently…

Catching the moment

At first there was a collage:

Then, it was standing a little bit … and then came the acrylic background….then it stood still a pretty long time ….
waited until the last night at 1 am, when I waited when Rasmus (my 5.5 month old son) wakes up to eat and found that this picture needs to be recorded … but the camera was  in the office at work … but there was that painted background …. and so I took a pencil and sketched a vision …. in quite dark room …
In the morning I took the pens and the watercolors, and it all became much more colorful:

So this is also an evidence page of the moment on Valentine’s Day on 2011 – see Crusade No. 48. It wasn’t planned … (I already thought that I will not attend in this crusade – I guess I am unconsciously addicted … 🙂 )

I printed this on a photo paper and it became a fabulous Valentine’s card for my husband’s parents …

Time to fly

It has been terrrribly hard time here during past month – children were continuously ill and I got a flu (I have not been so ill since I was 5 years old). And I am so grateful to my husband’s parents – mom who lived in my place to take care of me and children since my husband is working abroad.  So many thanks to my parents as well who drove 300 km to take care of us for several days.

Well, with these emotions it is necessary to heal your mental health and what is better way to do that than making art.

This time I was experimenting. I had 4 pages from my art journal to cover with collages.

Here are the first two of these:

Then these pages were covered with acrylics (+ ribbon) on the left page:

The Angel:

The Fairy:

I personally love the backgrounds …
