Passion for ProMarkers Week 49

This weeks PASSION FOR PROMARKERS challenge is set by Michele. She has made a sketch for us all to follow AND we must include handmade flowers! This weeks sponsor is LETRASET and they are offering the winner a 5-pack of ProMarkers. 

Michele's SKETCH: 
My home made flower is inspired by Gudrun from 3ndy as she was showing me how to make different paper flowers some weeks ago. I have used regular copy paper to make the flower and mounted them on a circle, then sprayed the whole thing with Glimmer Mist. My leaves are a bit bold so I might do them thinner for my next flower, but it was fun to make something other then the retro flowers!

Make sure you visit the other design team members blogs to read about their card for this weeks challenge. I love that our team makes such different styles of cards! So be kind and leave them a sweet comment ;) Thanks for looking and good luck with the challenge.

My weekend workshop @ PFP

This is a copy and paste of my WEEKEND WORKSHOP from April 9th

Welcome to this weeks Digi Friday. Today I (Ida) will show you how I have coloured my image for next weeks challenge. The image is sponsored by POLLY CRAFT. As we get to choose the image I just had to get this cute little kitten "Blossoming Friendship from the Spring Things series.


  • I start by colouring the cat with the lightest colour I want to use (Warm grey 1). I then add two layers of shades with Warm Grey 2 and 3. To make them blend together I colour over my image again using the lightest of my shades, Warm Grey 1. I use small circle motions to better wet the areas where there are shades.

  • I do the same when colouring the three, flowers and grass. I use the lightest of the shades in the colours I want to use, and then I add a darker colour to make the shades. Before I go over the image with the lightest of my colours
  • On the little cute bird I have just added a orange mouth and used Warm Grey 1 to add some shadows, before I've gone over the image with the Blender pen. I usually don't use the blender pen, but for areas you want to blend to white it works great!
  • Here are the colours I have used to colour my image.

Thanks for looking and good luck colouring.

ProMarkers classes @ SteinkjerScrepp{a}

This weekend I travelled to Steinkjer to attend SteinkjerScrepp{a} (a craft meeting hosted by my good friend Torill). While I was there I held three ProMarkers classes, a small one for Torill and her cute helpers on Friday and two full classes on Saturday and Sunday. I had such a great time and want to thank everyone for making it a fabulous weekend, thanks to all my "students" and all the lovely girls/ladies I got a chance to meet. I'm all booked for next year and cannot wait :)

Here is a overview, 60 wonderful girls/ladies being creative (and a happy lens bug)

These wonderful girls took such good care of me. Love you loads SteinkjerScrepper!! ;)

And here they are again, my test "students" on Fridays colouring class.

And these talented ladies attended my class on Saturday. They were all so engaged and made my job so easy. Thanks for being so sweet and inspiring! :)

And here's all the girls/ladies that attended my class on Sunday, they look pretty happy using ProMarkers don't you think? :)

Thank you to everyone who attended my classes this weekend. You helped me get inspired and motivated about my colouring and crafting again after a period with low motivation. So happy to have fun again when I craft!!

See you all again next year :D

Passion for ProMarkers Week 47

This weeks challenge at PASSION FOR PROMARKERS is to make your own background with Pro Markers. (set by me, wiiii) Some of you may recognise my image from the Weekend Workshop at PfP. (if not, have a look here!) I have made a picture frame and coloured my background with green and blue to make it into a scene. As it was a bit boring I stamped some cute birds on it and added some flowers for more dimension.

Here's some photo's of how I made the background.

  • Stamps: Polly Craft - Spring Things - Blossoming Friendship, text stamp from Kreativ Hobby.
  • Pattern Papers: Basic Grey - Green at Heart
  • Embellishments: Flowers and half pearls from Prima
  • Tools: Circle punches
  • Medium: ProMarkers - see image on the workshop blog for details.

This weeks sponsor is Letraset. They have generously sponsored a 5-pack of ProMarkers that one lucky winner will get. So why not give my challenge a try?

Thanks for looking and good luck with the challenge, I hope you will join in! And don't forget about the DESIGN TEAM CALL we have running.

Signs of Spring

Yesterday was a GREAT day. I had my new wheels mounted on my 1959 Volkswagen Bug and my friend Joachim took some snap shots when I was test driving with the new wheels. My Mom says the car looks more girlie with the new wheels, what do you think?

To see some driving shots and more pic's please visit JOACHIMS photoblog!

Taking the bug out from the garage is a true sign of spring so I'm truly looking forward to all the fun trips and cruising I will have with my friends in my bug this summer!!


We are having a DESIGN TEAM CALL over at Passion for ProMarkers. Why not give it a try?

Check out the criteria at the PfP blog.
