Home is where the heart is

I love crafting and love to try all kinds of differend techniques , so now I got my mind set on mixed media and artjournalling..
This is my second try for mixed media wallhanger my first one was more vintage you can find it HERE
I'm member of a facebook mixedmedia group and decided to enter their MMchallenge..
The challenge is use Fabric.. I glued a piece of burlap on a canvasboard and painted it with acrylicpaint. 
The heart is made of felt and the riboon for hanging is made of a piece of old bedsheet that I dye with tea. I used embossing paste (colored with acrylicpaint) with stencils from Prima marketing and Ronda Palazzari Designs..tissuepaper from Tim holtz and left over chipboard letters. The houses are cut out of chipboard with  the artful dwellings die from Tim Holtz,
I really love how it turned out and it gets a nice place in my home.

Sticky war..

Why is it that sticky tape  stick to everything but the place where it needs to stick?
I'm always in a fight with stickytape  and somethimes I even declare war to it and start calling it names or tell it it will never stick again anywhere if it doesn't go where I want it to go. It doesn't matter what kind of tape I use , washitape , regular scotch tape in differend sizes , doublesided. I hardly ever does what I want it to do without any struggle. Eventually it gets where it needs to go but never without a fight.....Is this just me?
Anyway ... I have been playing with washitapes, making pages for my * Note to self * section in my Kikki.k planner.  
Those pens are awsome  by the way !!  they are from Pilot and called  frictionball. On one tip of the pen ( the grey tip) sits an eraser that really erases your writing /drawing with out damaging your paper !!  Cool huh ? they come in verious colors and i bought them at my local bookstore. I got the four colors from the picture and a pink and dark bleu one..
Here is a link to a video that shows the pens..the ones in the video are a little differend than the ones I use but the results are the same .

My very own kikki.k planner !!

 
 Look what my mailman/girl brought me today !!  My very own kikki.k planner yaaaaaay!
It came in this beautiful pink and red box.
It's a beautiful raspberrie red one made from nice soft leather.


  This is the inside , lots of space to write, scribble and store all the kawaii sticker I'm going to use .And lots of tabs for the differend subjects..
 So what's with this planner ?  A little while ago  i saw Susi Blu  showing of her Kikki.k planner , she has a gorgeous light bleu one.  This is what I need I thought  a great , fun way to organize you r daily life..And belief me I need organizing I'm a very chaotic, look a squirrel, type of human. 
Anyway...I found out it is called filofaxing..why filofaxing?  Because the most common planner filofaxers use is one from filofax..they have great inserts and differend sizes and lots of looks to choose from. 
I decided to go for a filofax because the kikki.k planners are expensive and when you go to e-bay you can find  a filofax for a very nice price.  
So I bought a pocket size duck egg color filofax..I love my little filofax but it's to small to do with it what I want to do , so I decided to spoil myself bigtime and ordered my own kikki.k planner and this one is an A5 size so much more room to be a creative planner... so started in that one and keep it home and take my little filofax with me in my bag..and probably will start decorating that one too..
And now what is filofaxing..? Remember back in school when you had a schoolplanner/agenda  to write down your homework ? what you lessons you had to make when you had a test or quiz? I think most of us wrote a lot more down in it and glued pics. of popstars and actors in it or wrote silly stories , at the end of the school semester it bursting out of it's cover, because of all the stuff we put in it.. 
filofaxing is about the same thing.. writing down appointments , stuff you need to remeber , favorite recepie what ever you like and you decorate it with washitape , cute stickers .stamps , doodles what ever you like...
And yes it looks a little like smashbooking only this is with organizing..
