Daily Art Practice – May 29-31

Hello and happy Monday! Today I am again sharing 3 tiny pages from my DAP-Journal.

For this first one I used the almanac page and combined some magazine pages and words to it. The words translate to: “Categories: natural and artificial”.

For this one I created a centerpiece from the almanac page and added magazine pages in similar colours around it and then stamped some Klartext stamp images and wrote a word to accompany them. This one translates to: “Sincerely don´ t care”.

For the last piece I did pretty uch the same. I added some magazine page bits to the almanac page, then took some leftover pieces from previous almanac pages and added them in between and finished the page off with some gesso here and there and then fussy cut washi tape words. This washi is from Studio Calico from way back, when I used to subscribe their kits.

So this was May. I will share a flip-thru video of the May pages soon and then continue sharing June. I bet I cannot finish this journal by the end of this year, but it is not easy posting a page a day constantly. Life usually gets in between ;-).

Take care,
xxx, Sanna


Daily Art Practice – May 28th

Hello and happy Sunday! Ready for another DAP-Journal share and this time again with a face?

I “hid” the Artistic Almanac piece by drawing a face on top of it and adding the hair around. The idea worked out really well. I´ ve again used Neocolor 2´ s and a Stabilo all black pen. For finishing touches I fussy cut a Klartext stamp sentiment, but used only parts of it. The used bits translate to: “nothing to do but further”.

I really enjoed drawing her and noticed how much I miss my 2021 100 days of faces challenge and drawing faces. That was so much fun! I am anyways contemplating where to take my craft from here, what to do with it and what I enjoy the most at the moment. Kind of being in crossroads here at the moment abit.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Daily Art Practice – May 27th

Hello and happy Saturday! Here is another DAP-Journal share:

For this one I used the Artistic Almanac 2022 almanac page as my background, then added some newspaper article bits between the old photo and the almanac page and decorated with a tiny piece of ribbon. On top of it all a Klartext stamp sentiment again.

Simple, easy and fun!
Have a great Saturday!

Daily Art Practice – May 26th

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s DAP-Journal share is here:

For this piece I used leftover newspaper bits, some old book page residues and added a magazine image (the lady) that I fussy cut on top. In between the layers I used washi tapes and gesso and on top of everything I added a Klartext stamp sentiment.

The sentiment translates to: “Alice first had to fall, before she was able to reach wonderland”. Keeping that in mind on my recovery journey every day. We all fall sometimes, we struggle and fall, but we always get up in the end and fight some more, right? Because, what else is there to do than to continue with what you have and try again, maybe next time wiser and a bit harder and more determined.

Let´ s keep that in mind and remembert to cherish all the good things that happen in between. Hope your weekend will be full of wonderful and good things!
Lots of love,
xxx, Sanna


Daily Art Practice – May 20-22

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing 3 tiny pages from my DAP-Journal at once:

This is May 20th: done with the almanac page, then added a magazine image, some Neocolor 2´ s and finished the page off with a Klartext stamp. The stamped sentiment tranlates to: “to dream”.

This is May 21st: Here again I tried to continue the feeling of the original almanac page and did that by using Distress Paints, a magazine image of a dance and a Klartext stamped word which translates to “to dance”.

And finally, May 22nd: On this page I again used Distress Paints, a Posca pen in black and a Klartext stamp which translates to: “to laugh”. So this actually is a kind of series, in a way.

I hope you enjoyed today´ s share and hopefully I could inspire you also abit.
Take care,
xxxx, Sanna
