Meet Anita aka Neeta :)

I'm very happy to introduce you to the oh-so-talented Anita:)
I must admit that I find it a bit hard to write this, as I just don't know where to start...
This started out wanting to write about her scrapbooking, but looking through Anita's blog I got fascinated by her cards and then I descovered her art journaling - wow!

I think I'll start with her beautiful layouts:)
Anita has a way to capture an emotion in her photo and use papers and embellishments to make the emotion stronger.

She often makes her own backgrounds, or put details to readymade ones to make them better. It's so clever how she has used glimmermist (?) on this one to make it look like she have used two different papers for her background:

OK - this is not a good thing, but I have to admit that I don't pay much attention to card makers.
It's not that I think less of them, it's more that I don't find it that intersting. But after seeing Anita's work I think I have to change my mind. Her cards is artwork!

This is a Christmas card you should frame and put up every Christmas - it's a small present in itself.

I also have the little giraffe stamp, but the way Anita colour it makes it look totally different from mine. Anita is a master in colouring her stamped items!!!
In her blog you can find a step-by-step tutorial how to use distress ink to give life to stamped items.

This Valentine card is just sooo cute! I wonder if it's possible to get my husband to make one of these ;)

After looking through Anita's blog, and seeing her wonderful art journal I have tried to start my own art journal. I find so much inspiration in her pages - just look:

It's a shame to have these in a book, they should have been framed and put in a gallery!

And, as usual, my favourites:)
I had to pick two this time, one layout and one page for art journaling.

I just LOVE the way Anita has made her own background here.
It's so playful, and just so beautiful!

This art journaling page really captured my eye.
I love the effect of the photo with the letters behind, and the butterflies are so beautiful!

Thank you so much Anita for all the inspiration you give us!
Make sure to visit her blog and leave some nice comments:)
