Playing with Lupins

On our way home from our Midsummer celebrations, we made a quick stop. Picking some summer flowers, growing on the side of the road. Lupins..! Beautiful Lupins!
Unfortunately they're not everlasting.. not that lasting at all.. Had them for a couple of days before they started to shred flowers. So I went a bit crazy, taking pictures and experimenting with them. Cutting them up, decorating and photographing the cool angles/spirals they grow in. (I chose a selected few to show here, but believe me.. I took a whole lot more!)

My fashion owl "Ruva"

Here is one of my prints/illustrations in the last school project, that I wrote about earlier. This one is my fashion owl "Ruva". I will post more from the project. I'm really satisfied with the project, and I learned some great techniques and a lot about how I work best. I got the highest grade possible on the project, so I felt I finished the education with a BOOM! So I am one proud cookie right now and loaded as a gun to start produce some more artsy illustrations and projects. And of course, it's getting high time to get those wedding invitations ready soon..

What to you think about my project, the prints/illustrations/patterns?? Good, bad, want to buy it..? Please feel free to comment (under the post it concerns) or e-mail me. You can find the e-mail address on the page "Curious, who am I??" Give some feedback, I appreciate it.

On the train

On my way to Stockholm again, to celebrate a birthday and to help my sister and her boyfriend move into a new appartment. It's been promised good and warm weather. I brought my shorts and I'm hoping to improve my for the moment non-excisting tan. The state my legs are in right now, they shouldn't be shown in public. But a good friend convinced me that in order to get some colour, I actually have to expose myself to the sun.. shocker! I'm not dumb.. I knew that. It's just uncomfortable the first couple of times/days.
As you can see I'm also drinking carrot juice, just to increase the odds of getting a great tan. With the midsummer celebrations coming up this weekend, it could be nice to actually be able to show some flesh! ;) I'm spending my midsummer in Mora this year, that's about as Swedish as it gets.
Taking the train is a good way to travel. It's easy and beneficial especially in an environmental point of view. Although the tickets really are quite expensive here in Sweden, and it's a pity they don't lower the prices. Because I think a lot more people would take the train then. I'm fortunate to be able to buy it at a student price, and sure sometimes you can get lucky by booking your ticket in advance. More people should take the train though. Trains are fast and air-conditioned(usually). During the summer, you can see and experience a lot of our beautiful country and it's landscape. I'm actually taking the train in a couple of weeks again. To go to a wedding, up north in Sweden, in Piteå. Hoping to get a few tips for our own wedding planning.
