The three muses challenge - Inspirational people

Åshild - Forever Creating

This 4x4 was inspired by Åshild, a norwegian woman that I've never met but who, through her fantastic blogs (they're written in english) Kreativ dagbok and Åshilds reise has inspired me and I'm quite sure, all the others, who has had the opportunity to visit her websites.

I came across her blog a little over a year ago looking to find something about Art Journaling. And there it was, tutorials, challenges, the works!! I started reading her blog and doing aj-pages and more and more I felt the need to tell her what a tremendous inspiration she was. So finally, this may, I started my own blog, all thanks to her!! One of the first things I did, was to visit her blog to tell her what you all now can read here.

And when The three Muses came up with this challenge I just knew my card had to be a tribute to her :), I left a message on her blog asking if it was ok, and was very happy to get a positive answer. She was even kind enough to lend me a photo of her from when she was a child, to use on my 4x4 :)

So this Åshild is my tribute to you! May you always create from your heart and continue inspiering people for years to come!!! I wish you success in all that you do and create, happiness, good health and may all your dreams come true!!

Thank you soooo much for beeing such an inspiration, and for letting me share this with the kind people visiting my blog!!

All the best

  5. Dear Linda!
    I'm SO honored! Thank you so much for the kind words and the incredible charming card you've made for me. I'm sitting here smiling - from ear to ear :)

    As I told you in the mail; the best compliment I can get, is that my art inspires. If I make stuff that makes others wanna create too - it's the best thing that can happen!

    So, let's keep on inspiring, girl :)

    Hugs'n kisses,

    (Adressa mi er: Åshild Ruud, Grendeveien 21, 3188 Horten)
