Daily Art Practice – April 29th

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am stopping by to share another daily art practice journal page with you. These are always created using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I used white gesso on the background, then added Neocolor II crayons on top and mixed them with water. When everything was dry, I added pencil marks on top and finished the page off with another Klartext stamp sentiment. Fun and fast this time!

I also found the page so suitable with the sentiment on it and the accompanying sentiment that I added. Mine translates to: “Before you ask: no”. And yes, there is panic in the air stil. I was hoping my surgery would solve that problem, but it didn´ t yet, so I am still continuing this journey apparently. Thus the page just matches my recent feelings very well. Therefore it was very therapeutic to create it!

For me, crafting is therapy, I get to process feelings on pages and it always, always helps. I wonder if anyone of you does the same? Would love to hear how it has helped you guys.

Take care,
xxx, Sanna

Daily Art Practice – April 28th

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am again stopping by to share another Daily Art Journal Practice page with you. This is again done using the Artistic Almanac as the starting point.

For this page I used a piece of kitchen roll that has similar colours of ink on it already (yes, I save some of those if I like the colours!). On top of that I just added Stabilo black marks. Then I took a piece of fabric and colored it with crayons in red, orange and yellow. After spraying water the colours mixed nicely together.

After they were dry, I adhered them on place and added stamped Klartext sentiments on top. This page turned out really nice in my opinion. I like the texture and the colours here alot!

See you tomorrow with another share!

Daily Art Practice – April 27th

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am again stopping by to share another Daily Art Journal Practice page with you. This is again done using the Artistic Almanac as the starting point.

For this page I used only Neocolor II crayons and a pencil as well as a Stabilo all black pen. I tried to create a similar look to my side of the page again.

For additional detail I again used Klartext stamps on top of everything.

I hope you week is getting along nicely! See you again tomorrow, but this time, with a layout share again :).

Daily Art Practice – April 26th

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice page from my journal. This one, again, is done using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I used a picture from a magazine and added the almanac page´ s flowers as a flower bouguet to it. Additionally I also used a Klartext stamp to add the moon cycle image and then that again inspired me to write down the words: “Many moons ago!!”. On the background I used Distress Crayons this time.

I found that very suitable for this image. I had a good time making this one!
See you again with more journal shares tomorrow.

Daily Art Practice – April 25th

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice page from my journal. This one, again, is done using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I simply used pearlescent watercolours on a partly gessoed page and then added marks with a white Signo uni-ball pen on top after the watercolour had dried.

I find the artistic almanac very inspiring, because thru every single page one is challenged to try out something one has possibly not tried to do before. Now, some may say I am just copying the particular day´ s page and not doing anything unique with it. TRUE also, BUT I am also testing out ideas and techniques other creatives have to see how if feels like and maybe thru this process will learn something new and also might develop my own personal way of creating. This is why I enjoy this almanac so much. It´ s about the personal creative developent and challenge for me.

Have a great week, lovelies!
