Weekend with Guest Designers - Weekend z gościnnymi projektantkami

Pierwszy weekend grudnia jest wyjątkowy na blogu 13 arts:) 
Będziemy gościć u nas niezwykle utalentowane, zapewne większości z Was znane, projektantki. 

First weekend of December here at 13 arts blog is really exiting:) It's our honour that very talented, well-known designers will join us with their outstanding projects.

Jako pierwszą powitajmy ciepło Eilę Sandberg ze Szwecji. Jest ona nie tylko bardzo utalentowaną, niezwykła artystką, ale również wspaniałą, ciepłą i otwartą osobą. Bardzo dziękuję Eili, że przyjęła moje zaproszenie i podzieli się z nami swoją wspaniałą pracą.

Fisrt we want to give a warm welcome to Eila Sandberg from Sweden. She is not only very talented, amazing artist, but also great, friendly and warm person. Thank You so much Eila for joining us and sharing your spectacular work with us.

Poznajmy zatem Eilę i zobaczmy jej niezwykły projekt z papierów "Frosted Life". 
So let's meet Eila and see her wonderful project made with "Frosted Life" papers.

Hi! My name is Eila Sandberg and I live in Sweden's capital called Stockholm on the east coast by the Baltic Sea. My roots are Finnish but I was born and raised in Sweden.

I've been sort of dabbling with scrapping since 2009 but more seriously so since 2010. Scrapping is a wonderful way for me to gain balance and happiness in my otherwise very stressful office life. I work fulltime outside of our home.

I scrap mainly 12 x 12 layouts and you will always see flowers on my pages. I devour English crime novels and love BBC TV series and milk chocolate. Inspectors Morse and Lynley are my kind of coppers! If I don't get a big mug of coffee with milk in the morning I get very cranky.
I have the privilege of being a DT member of the Australian challenge sites The Color Room (TCR), and Once Upon A … Sketch (OUAS), as well as of CSI Color..Stories..Inspiration (CSI) in the US.  I am also a re-visiting Guest Designer at the Australian challenge site Meg’s Garden.
Thank you so much Aida for asking me to create with papers from the gorgeous Frosted Life collection!

Some details:

Papers used are:
I mounted everything on watercolour paper.
Backing paper used is the brown paper from the back of Cold Wall. 
Second layer used is the teal blue paper from the back of Moon Dust
Third layer is the vertical centre strip, which is the front of Cold Wall

Don't you agree this project is just stunning? 
Zgadzacie się ze mną, że praca jest po prostu nieziemsko piękna?
