Our 2nd November guest ...

Let me introduce you to Helena Wikman - the second place winner of the ARTastic sponsored challenge for Northern Light Scrappers retreat in Sweden with her take on our November inspiration.

The entry in this challenge  is created around a photo of my younger son Anton, in the neighbouring village two years ago. He is posing in a field of dandelions. I originally posted this on my Instagram page where I added the black frame. I thought it would be nice to use the horizon in the picture on the layout and expand the feeling of heaven and the ground. I also added a lot of flowers !


I’m so happy that I got this guest design spot at ARTastic challenge blog.  I have been scrapbooking for about five years and I’m spending more time at it for each year that goes by. This year I have also started to paint a bit more in acrylics and mixed media style. I do mostly cards but have started to enjoy making layouts more and more, especially since I love to take pictures. Gardening is also a big hobby of mine. I live in the north of Sweden in a house with my fiancée and our two boys who are 10 and 12.

I recently made this layout featuring my brother and his wife prior to their wedding as they were out scouting places to take their wedding-photos with their photographer.

 This layout was made of a challenge-sketch and features a photo of my skies. The title translates to ’snowmorning’ which is the title of the poem to the right.

The last layout featuring my other son Johan also out skiing. It was created on the theme of enjoying the outdoors.
