Art Abandonment #6

Hi there!

Today is my 60th birthday! Yeah!! I made it this far!

My two sisters and I celebrate our birthdays in the same week, and therefore I usually go to Viborg to the cemetary where our parents are buried to put a nice bouquet on their graves. I did so today as usual.

I have made it a habit to have a card that's ready for abandonement in my shoulderbag and while on the cemetary, I got the idea to put the card in the unisex restroom on top of the soap dispenser. So thought - so done! Hopefully, somebody that need a cheering up will find it.

I abandoned this card:


The card is from my "Colouring on Kraft Paper" class in Kit and Clowder and the image is "Missing you02" by PolkaDoodles. Very appropriate name (which I just saw now in my file) for abandonment at a cemetary.

I have added a Hello sentiment and distressed around it with blue distress ink matching her outfit.

She's coloured with my Polychromos pencils.

I hope you like her.

Feel free to leave me a message to let me know, if you like my cards.

My 5th Abandonment

Hi There!

Today I went up to Loekken which is a city in North Jutland quite near the North Sea and about 1½ hours drive from my house. 

My purpose of going there was to meet Karen, our newest member of the family and a real beauty. 

On the way I thought I could spread a little love so I abandonnedd this card at a suitable place where I was certain it would be found rather quickly, and the possibility that it's a tourist who'll find it is big too. 

Loekken is full of tourists during the summer months. I think the motive is quite suitable for this place close to the sea.



This is "Rory Anchors Aweigh" by Lacy Sunshine. I love Rory images, they are so cute.

To me this image implies colours of white, red and blue, so I've coloured her in those and also used backing papers in those colours. 

Having been a girl scout in my childhood I know how to tie a reef knot and of course she should have one of those on the card. I've added melted HAMA pearls.  The white pearls don't melt evenly, so there's a little hole in the middle of them. 

I hope you like it.

New abandonment today

Hi there,

Today I went shopping for a dinner party at my house later this week at a huge supermarket (in Denmark it is anyway) in Viborg called BILKA. They are celebrating a birthday, so there were some awesome discounts to hunt down.

I got 8 canvasses 18 x 24 cm and the only 2 left size 20 x 20. I would prefer to have had them all in that size, but the other 8 will do nicely. I also got 10 tubes of acryllic paint in 9 different colours (2 blue ones). And some leaf gold, which I'm kind of exited about, I hope my idea with this turn out great. None of this stuff is for the dinner party of course, it's for crafting LOL and maybe art abandonment.

Well, back to the abandonement.

I dropped the below card in a shopping cart a little way from the entrance, but as I left with my own cart, I saw a couple heading for the carts, so maybe they found it. It was raining cats and dogs, so I didn't wait to find out. As usual I put a note in the plastic cover on which the name of the digi shop is.

I've used the cutest image from KennyK called Bench Couple, I added a few die cuts (the fence and the grass). The butterfly is from a sheet of see thru stickers, I put it on some vellum and cut it out. I thought the backing paper was perfect for this image.


You can find it here:

I entered the card in the KennyK Facebook challenge #13 (last minute) this weekend and found out yesterday, that I'd won Top3 and thereby also won 3 new KennyK digis, Yeah!!!

Did you notice that on the right side of the blog under my photo, I've put a link to the blog with my coloured cards and likewise on that blog, so it's easy to switch between them.
