Daily Art Practice – Day 6

Hello and happy Friday! It´ s been one week of Daily Art Practice now. Only 51 more weeks to go (oh my..!). So far I´ ve enjoyed the short daily processes alot. The more time consuming part of this is obviously preparing the post and the video. It all actually takes more time than just creating the piece. But I am trying to keep it all very simple and don´ t edit that much. That way it´ s easier to prepare. Here is day 6:

I used Dina´ s Gloss Paints on the background. I love the bright colours in combination with the almanac page´ s pink tones. I added some Nuvo Drops thru a STAMPlorations stencil in there too, then some old random rub-ons, but they fit in perfectly with the “Denglisch” sentiment, actually. Just a fun thing, not planned, and it turned out good. Now to the video:

I have already prepared a place for these 3 tags from the past days – they will be interactive on a page and behind them will be at least one more day or maybe even two. Let´ s see how my plan works out. Here are some details:

See you again tomorrow!!!

Daily Art Practice – Day 5

Hello and happy Thursday! Here is my daily art practice post again for DAY 5 with the Artist Almanac 2022.

I did a big mess with Distress Paints, so most of the beginning of my video comes from that. The actual creating process would have resulted on a much shorter video. But these things happen, so I am not going to dwell on it.

On this piece I wanted to leave most of the almanac page as it is and just more some parts around / cut only small pieces out of it. I adde some sticker alphas and again a Klartext “Denglisch” stamp sentiment onto the page. A little feather and a shell button decorate the tag also.

This was a fun one to do, although the paint accident. See you again tomorrow with more mixed media fun! Can´ t wait to play more!!

Daily Art Practice – Day 4

Hello lovelies! Today´ s art practice is live! This time it´ s a tag. I will be doing these smaller pieces from time to time to add them to my journal. I am creating more interactive pages, because I have to fit in a full year and it only has a limited amount of pages :).

Here is the video:

The stamped sentiment under the date is again from a Klartext stamp set called “Denglisch” (see supply list). And here are some more photos:

I just wripped the beautiful 4th of January almanac page into smaller pieces to add it to my tag as a background. I found it quite hard to put it into pieces, because I liked it so much as it is. :). Who else identifies with this?

See you again tomorrow! Oh, and I will of course be posting other stuff here too, not just these daily practices. So some days you will find more than one post going live. Going to be a busy, busy year for me ;-). Wish me luck!

Happy crafting,

Seriously-tag

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing another mixed media tag I did recently and sent it on it´ s way to Germany. Hoping it has arrived there already, I am posting this tag today :).

This is a gelli printed background combined with stamping, stenciling with Nuvo Drops and fussy cut bits. There is also a really tiny Hambly Screen Print included on the tag. It´ s been in my stash FOREVER!

Some Posca pens for additional detail and a Stampotique stamp by Daniel Torrente combined with Klartext stamp and a 7gypsies stamp. I also added fussy cut hearts and stenciled Nuvo Drops thru one of my Stamplorations stencils.

I hope this tag makes/made the recipient happy :)! It was just a little happy mail surprise just for fun.

See you soon again!

Masculine Tag

Hello lovelies and happy Saturday and happy NEW YEAR 2022! Today I have a simple masculine tag to share with you. A few wishes for the new year 2022 in “Denglish” :)!!

I had been organizing my scrap room a few months ago and found lots of bits and pieces I had totally forgotten I had. Like these 7 Dots Studios papers (Destination Unknown). I won them as a prize quite a while ago and hardly have used them so far. And then there was this stamped tag just waiting for to be used. I combined the papers with the stamped tag and voilá, the piece was almost done.

Just a few stamped sentiments from Klartext by Dani Peuss (Denglish 2 stamp set) to go with the rest and a very old Hambly Screen Print and that was pretty much it. I really like the look of this one. It will make a nice present tag for someone!

I was chatting with a friend of mine today and we talked about what had inspired us during this year. My best inspiration probably came from the 5 minute projects. They showed me that there does not always have to be hours and hours of time – you can do just a few minutes a day and still develop, have fun and reach set goals. It also gave me a certain freedom to create, ugly or not, it was still good crafty time! I might continue that practice next year too! Have you tried doing the 5 minute challenge? I highly recommend it!
