I want to share a mixed media layout I made. I haven’t created much for me lately and when I saw the challenges out their right now, I just had to find me some time. Especially Mixed Media & Art and Challenge #1 at AALL & Create- Europe
This layout is of some of our wonderful adventures while in Norway. The mountains and forests where such an amazing site. I am so grateful for my good friend Yasmin for putting up with us and par-taking in the great adventures.
This picture of Maksim was during our hunt up the mountain to find sea-shells left there from the Ice Age. These 10,000 year old shells as the boys would call them, were carried from the ocean by a glacier and deposited up on the mountain in layers of clay. It still gives me happy jitters in my tummy thinking about the excitement everyone had.
During the whole little adventure, the bugs were bad and Maksim kept wiping his head with his dirt filled sleeve of his jacket.
The scenery was spectacular, I wish we would have had more time to explore the waterfalls, tunnels and bunkers from the war. So many secret treasures in the forest. Many Many memories.
I made a short video of my creative process. I basically start with a colour palette and go from there, even adding old print from Norwegian books. I never know where it will take me or even if I will like it in the end.
And if you want to see the video of the kids finding the shells I added that short video for your pleasure.
Thank you for stoping by today!
