Daily Art Practice – Day 17

Hello and happy Tuesday! Here is another daily art practice page without any further ado. You already know what these are about, so I am just sharing the video and the photos today:

May I just say here that I love the Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and I love the colours on today´ s almanac page. I really enjoyed doing this so very much!

Oh, and this sentiment means something like: now we are in a fine mess. And now some detail shots here:

See you again tomorrow with yet another page!
Take care, xxx, Sanna

Daily Art Practice – Day 16

Hello and happy Monday! The page of my Daily Art Practice 2022 w/ the Artist Almanac is live again. Today I cut the full page into two smaller pages, so one page fits not only 2 days, but four. And it is nice to do smaller formats in between days.

Now anyone who follows Nat knows her townscapes. I just didn´ t have the heart to cut this one into pieces, so I just did something you learn at school: I continued the scenery and added the full piece into the middle. And it was FUN!

Here are some detail photos, too:

I really like how this one turned out – I obviously didn´ t invent anything on this page myself, it´ s just the piece continued in the best way I could. And I love the colours on this one so much too. Thanks for a gorgeous, inspring almanac page Nat!!!

And here is the Denglisch translation again: Such a dump / such a pop stand.

And we will see each other hopefully tomorrow again!
Take care, xxx, Sanna

Daily Art Practice – Day 15

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing my day 15 take on my personal daily art practice challenge. I make these pages using the Artist Almanc 2022 as my inspiration.

Today´ s page is a bit rub-on crazy, but oh well. I just could not stop :). And I´ ve got some old tissue tape that I´ ve misted with Glimmer Mists in there too. And another Denglisch stamp sentiment, of course. Then some Liquitex Titanium White ink, Dina Wakley Gloss Spray and my stencils (gelli printed) and Tim´ s Distress Paints.

So all kinds of goodness and fun stuff! Today´ s sentiment translated means something like: “Keep your chin up”!

This is all for today. See you again tomorrow!!

Trifecta Cardmaking – January 2022

Hello lovelies and welcome to another Trifecta Cardmaking share with STAMPlorations products. Today I share a set of cards, done in a bit different designs, but the starting point was always the same basic technique/end product.

This is the first card I made:

and here are some detail photos:

For the second card I again used the same idea: a gelli printed paper I had created with STAMPlorations stencils on old music notes. Here is the second card:

On the first card the bold background covers the whole card base, that way the end result looks totally different. Here the overall look is more clean and simple due to the white space and only a small gelli circle as a focal point. Here are some detail photos:

And now to the 3rd card:

On this one again as my starting point I used a gelli printed and stenciled paper. This time I took a leaf stamp and stamped with it onto the paper and then fussy cut the pieces. That way I have multi-colored and multi-patterned leaves on a plain background and it is still the same basic idea. On all cards I this way again have stencils, stamps and stickers used – but in a different way on each one. The clear stickers make great sentiments for the cards. And now to the steps. This time round I recorded a step-by-step video for you to watch so you can get a better idea. Hope you like it!

I hope you enjoyed this months Trifecta cards and ideas! If you want to know how to do the stenciled papers, there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube (or check out Birgit Koopsen´ s Instagram Account – there are plenty of ideas up there!). I also made a similar technique with foam stamps and paints, but you could use stencils instead. That video is HERE. Oh, and here are some detail photos of the last card:

See you again in March with another Trifecta tutorial. STAMPlorations is taking a break in February from regular posts.

Happy crafting,

Daily Art Practice – Day 14

Hello lovelies! Today´ s daily art practice is live. I again added the past 4 days to this page – first: to save space and second: to make the journal more interactive. I am really having fun with this Artist Almanac inspired journal atm. Here is today´ s page:

The page on the right is the one for today. I got some vintage photos into my hands recently and I am so, so eager to use them and such a journal is a perfect place. Also the pose of that lady is perfect for today´ s Denglisch sentiment which translates to: you are getting on my nerves / you´ ve been asking for it.

and here are some detail photos:

See you again tomorrow!!!
