Daily Art Practice w/ 2022 Artist Almanac – Day 3

Hello everyone and happy Monday! For me it means a workday again after a few days off. Today´ s piece is therefore a very simple one. BUT I committed on doing a short art practice every day and I am doing my best to do so :). Here is today´ s take:

If you are wondering about the brown piece on the top, it´ s the pocket from yesterday. I am trying to fit as many as possible bits into this journal and as it had only a limited amount of pages, I need to get creative. See the video for details :).

I did the background with Distress Paint (brushed corduroy) and Distress Ink (Seedless Preserves). Trying to keep to the colours of today´ s almanac page. The stamp is again by Klartext (another “Denglisch” stamp there). The sentence translates to something like: life is not always easy / life is not a picnic. For the rest of the almanac page, I just fussy cut it into triangles and arranged them in a row to point towards the area underneath the pocket (like, see here!).

Here you can see how the pocket from yesterday is on top of today´ s focal point. Just to make it all a bit more interactive. The leaves I had already done some time ago and they were on my desk, so I used them for color contrast. I also decided to stop putting up a timer, because it is too stressfull trying to keep track if it is working etc. I might just take a regular kitchen timer for the next videos.

Thanks for stopping by again today! See you tomorrow!!
