That's so you

Just... I don't know. A self-portrait. Lol.


I'm sick (have fever) and too much time on my hands. And I feel sad (but I most often do). 

I have submitted my portrait/drawing to the following challenges:
All That Stickles: Fall Harvest Linky Party
CAS-ual Fridays: Fall colors & leaf
Challenges 4 Everybody: Anything goes
CMC Copic Challenge Group: Anything goes
Creative inspirations: Anything goes
Fab 'n' Funky: Leaves
Make My Monday: Flowers or Trees 
One Stitch at a Time: Anything goes 
Sunday Stamps: We're going with gold (I used golden acrylic paint as a final touch on the coral hair and mint green clothing)
The Corrosive Challenge Blog: Maiden 
Top Tip Tuesday: Leave a tip 
Tip: Try to make cards during the day, or buy a daylight bulb for your craft room. This will cut down on eye strain and make it easier to match colours. 
613 Avenue: Anything goes

Card-recipe 
*Background: Page from a fairytale book named Godnattsagor by Förlaget Kärnan Ab Helsingborg

  18. Hello Wio!
    What an artist you are, is it true that I can take and make it a card? Did I understand correctly :) I would like to have a look I get the same kind of fresh and delightful as you are ..
    Hugs Kaija<3

    2. Trevligt att höra det, kan jag försöka göra en bild av ditt kort :)
      Jag hade ingen aning om att du är Swensk:)
      I själva verket var jag bara i Stockholmsområdet för ett par dagar.
      Jag har bott i Sverige de senaste 13 åren.
      Kram Kaija<3

    3. Hej igen Kaija! Ursäkta, jag trodde att jag redan hade svarat. Vad fint kortet blev! Kul att du nyligen varit i Stockholm. Jag brukar befinna mig mer söderut (Småland). Tidigare bodde jag i Skåne. Oj, där ser man :) Jag har alltid bott här i Sverige. Kram
