About me

Mitt foto
I am a creative mother of two and grandmother of four wonderful kids. I like to create with the grandchildren so they learn to play without toys. Have always drew, painted and stitched. Like to reuse old things. Maybe a chair gets a new style or a few plates becomes a cookie dish. So create cards and paintings fit me. Lives in Sweden, Karlstad

I have spent many hours on coloring this summer, to learn the different pens I have. 
Have a little better control of the shading ... but oh so very different technologies available!
This is the image "The Artist" from TSC and I color her with Polychomos.
