Artsy team - from the kitchen

A short article this time, as we are working on getting our new team finilized!
En liten artikkel fra ARTsy-teamet nå før vi får hele det nye teamet på plass!

The girls got a new challenge this week, and a fun one!
Silje & Inger fikk en helt spesiell utfordring denne uken!

Use something that you have in your kitchen drawer...
Bruk noe som du finner i kjøkkenskuffen...

Here's the result of Inger & Silje:

Kitchen things used: gelatin (powder) for gelatin printing, tea bags (flower and motif background), string.
Kitchen things used: cinnamon, gelatin, pistachio shells.

Silje's AJ

These are the things I found in my kitchen and used in my Art Journal:
Cupcake paper cups, natural string, metal ring and tiny pearls.

Next article from our team will include a presentation of our new team, 
and we are looking forward to the new inspirations!

I neste artikkel vil vi presentere det nye teamet vårt, 
og vi gleder oss til masse ny inspirasjon!

We look forward to present the girls to you :-)

Today we are sponsored by an Swedish stamp company called PhunnyFace.
And before we show you what we made, 
some words from the owners of PhunnyFace.

- We started Phunnyface in 2010 and we are a company 
that has chosen to put our  focus on designing and selling our own stamps. 
We are based in Gothenburg - Sweden, but our store can only be found online   
Our clear stamps are all designed and drawn by our 
own talented artist Anita Oloo-Toddo. 
She can get ideas for the stamps anywhere but 
the best ideas come from our own customers. 
We are happy to receive suggestions for stamps, 
 if you have an idea for a stamp, you can mail it to .
If she feels that your suggestion is something she can work with

And here´s what we made.








I made a matching card and a box. The text stamp is two in one and if I try to translate it roughly, it says something like "It's not especially fun beeing sick...but it's sickening fun beeing special"...something like that but it sounds better in swedish ;)






The text says something like,
"Roses are red, violets are blue a Smile from you is the best one can get."

Old Books...

...can be used for so many different things, and this time I have challenge the team members with "using old book pages". Just to show you, that there are so many options and that we must not forget to use it :-)

We are for the time being searching for new team members, and we have challenge two girls for this article. Hope that  you also like what they did, and gets inspired the way we did!

Gamle boksider kan brukes til så mangt, og denne gangen har jeg utfordret både teamet og noen av våre søkere til designteamet. Håper at du blir inspirert til bruk av gamle sider, og ser her hvor utrolig mange måter man kan bruke gamle boksider på...

 Swedish girl with passion for fleamarkets and making things from old stuff. She made this book especially for our challenge, and we are amazed how beautiful this is...

 Angelica have used not only book pages for the backgrounds, but also made the flowers out of them. She have used acrylic paints, embossing powder and chipboards.

Maria has a passion for both cardmaking and scrapbooking. She says that she don't have a special style and that she loves to try everything. She has made to beautiful card for the book pages challenge...

Maria has made two different cards with book pages, and she has used acrylic paint as well as inks.

And the team members...
