Salvador Dahli

Jag har alltid gillat Salvador Dahlis konst och han har alltid inspirerat mig.
När Inzpira tidningen hade sin temautmaning ”Tid” så ville jag göra något som inte var i papper. Självklart skulle det ingå klockor men jag visste inte vad jag skulle hitta på tills jag kom på att göra örhängen i krympplast.
Samtidigt ville jag att de skulle vara lite annorlunda och kom då att tänka på Salvador Dahlis smältande klockor.
För att få till det ”smälta” utseendet så fick jag hjälp av maken. När krympplasten precis krympt färdigt men innan den stelnat så tog vi en varsin tång och drog åt varsitt håll.

Tid

Ibland kan jag tycka att tiden är lite skev. ;P

Välkommen tillbaka i morgon!

A mousetrap.

A mousetrap is, as you can hear from the name a trap to catch a mouse.
We have a cat who usually takes care of that matter so when I told my husband that I needed a mousetrap or three he looked very surprised.
I did, however  not need them for killing. Instead I had found a completely different use for it.

I altered my fist mousetrap and posted it on my blog as usually. You can see it here.
A while after I got a comment from one of the Inzpira Magazine team members that I should send something like that to the magazine.
I thought that maybe I should and didn’t think more about the matter.

I was very surprised when I got an e-mail asking if I could alter a mousetrap for the magazine and send it to them ASAP.
Of course I would do that!
I was very flattered naturally.
So there I was, sitting in the summer afternoon in the garden, enjoying a good book, a nice cup of coffee and completely stunned.
It had to be Christmas theme and I have to admit that I didn’t have any Christmas feeling at all.
However I had painted one trap that I was going to make later on for my MIL but I hadn’t figured out what theme yet. Luckily!
I thought that I needed a couple of days to make it but I got it done by the evening the same day. The next morning when everything had dried over night I sent it to the magazine.

This is the issue 5/12 the Christmas issue.

Its me as a baby almost 43 years ago.

I used Bo Bunny paper on top of a mustard colored CS. I also used a zipper from my stash. I actually got them from my granny who kept saving everything!
For the stamped numbers I used a regular stamp that you use in an office.
I just had to buy one since I love those kind of stamps. 🙂
Feathers, flowers, pins, charms, paper ribbon and washitape.
I love to use loads of decorations.

Until next time, take care.

Påskspel / Eastergame

I det senaste numret av Inzpira Magazine  finns mitt påskspel med/ In the latest issue of Inzpira Magazine my Easter game was published:

Inzpira Magazine

Asken där spelet förvaras mäter ungefär 7×7″/The box where the game is kept is about 7×7″

Samla

Spelet mäter 12×12″ utfällt/ The game measures 12×12″ when its open

Samla5

Hopfällt blir det bara 6×6″/ When folded its 6×6″

Samla6

”Nätlådan” i mitten är en popup som fälls i hop när man viker ihop spelplanen/The ”fence” in the middle is a popup and folds down when closed.

Spelpjäserna har jag gjort genom att stämpla Magnolia stämplar på krympplast. Foten till varje spelpjäs är gjord av cernitlera.
Jag har stansat ut alla ägg med Spellbinder Nested Egg die
/I have made all the caracters by stamping Magnolia stämps on plastic that you shrink by heating it. I am sorry but I cannot remember the name at the moment.
To get the characters to stand I have made a foot of clay.

Samla4

Tärningen har jag vikt ihop av CS och istället för prickar fick det bli stickers siffror.
Den lilla haren på tärningen är en hÄnglar och stÄnglar stämpel.
/I made the dice of CS but instead of dots I used stickers with numbers. The little Bunny is from hÄnglar och stÄnglar.

Samla1

Det är faktiskt riktigt roligt att spela och jag fick god hjälp av maken, Tommy att utforma själva spelet. Vi hade vansinnigt kul när vi lekte fram det.
/Its really fun to play this game and I had a lot of help from my hubby, Tommy to form the game. We had loads of fun while working it out.

Glad Påsk!
Happy Easter!
