DSC_0727We loved our vacation in South Africa and all the fun we had! This photo is from Ballito. I sprayed the background with ink and water and then I put salt on it let it dry. The flowers and the heart I made from old book pages. I painted the book pages with white paint and then I colored them with panpastels.

Scrap Africa´s challenge http://scrapafrica.blogspot.se/2014/01/challenge-no25-recycling.html with recycling just fitted me this time. We were cleaning the attic and I found all this books that I used at the university and never looked in again! I used some of the book pages to make the flowers and the heart.

my sweet girl

I made a new page for  Scrap around the world. Here is the picture I got inspired by. The beach and the sweetness of the coffee cups, they are so fragile and also so strong just like my daughter. http://scraparoundtheworld.blogspot.ie/

I was inspired by the beach picture and the colors. They just ”talked” to me! I started to with a picture of my daughter Pauline walking along the beach with her very special auntie in Durban, South Africa. Pauline is adopted from South Africa and we were there visiting and enjoying South Africa.

I took a paper from my pile! I painted it white because I didn´t like the flowers on it. I then painted it with my panpastels, I just love them! I just played around with different stencils and colors!


And close ups!

It is in your hands…

When we were in South Africa two years ago we visited Cradle of Human Kind. We all loved it, all the kids and the adults too! When our youngest and oldest stood with their hands in Nelson Mandela’s ”hands” and Leo explained to Pauline what the sign said and what it meant to him, he also tried to explain who Nelson Mandela were, it was a very precious moment that I am so happy  got a picture of.

This year we will try to live after these words ”It is in your hands…” it will be a challenge because t is easier to blame someone else than to work with it by yourself!


I named it HÄNDER and it has two meanings to it both hands and it happens so I thought that it would be a good name to a simple page with a lot of emotions in! Thank you http://scrapafrica.blogspot.se/ I love your blog!
