A few gift wrap ideas from a feature I did for a Danish magazne. I find it surprisingly dificult to come up with a whole series of different gift wrap ideas that will match, but not be just variants of the same theme. But this time around I found a method that seems to work. I started out looking for all matching papers in dark purple-redish shades in my stash. Then went for the accessories. Glass beads, pieces of jewlery, silk flowers, stickers, feathers.....anything as long as the colours were right. Then the ribbons seemed easy to find.
Crafts! Christmas stuff, paintings for children, sewing projects, lots of glitter!

Tutorial for Newspaper Flowers
I was wondering if I should start blogging a bit again. I decided recently (I thought) to take a break and was so surprised to see it was two years since my last post! Wow, probably not one single reader left.
These pictures are from a story in a Danish magazine out there now. All ideas are based on news papers combined with other papers. Photos are by Jakob Valling.
I like the flowers most. At the bottom you can see kind of a tutorial photo if you want to give it a try.
I love to work with old book pages, sheet notes and news papers etc.
As soon as I had finished this photo session, I wanted to do one more. I just had too many ideas for this two page story. So I have asked traveling friends and collegues to bring home news papers from exotic countries. I'm so exited to see what it will bring.
