Daily Art Practice – March 27th

Hello and happy Sunday! Today i am again dropping by to share my next page in my Daily Art Practice Journal, where I use the Artist Almanac 2022 pages as my starting point.

I loved the March 27th almanac page so much!! It is exactly something that totally speaks to me at the moment. I just kept adding bits and bobs to the background from my scrap-jar and ended up with this. A Tim Holtz paper doll on top and some Stabilo all black to the background plus a Klartext stamp finishes everything off.

And there is again a video up on my YouTube channel – where you can also watch all previous pages, if you want to:

Here are some detail photos of the page too:

See you next week again with more journal pages and some Dani Peuss related projects. Have a fabulous Sunday!

Daily Art Practice – Day 77

Hello and welcome back to the daily routine! I am slowly starting with the daily posts again after the Covid break. Here is day 77 (March 19). Hope you enjoy!

I am not going to try and catch up on all days, I might do a few in a row maybe, but we will see how that goes. I used Neocolor 2´ s here again with Posca markers adn Klartext stamps as well as Stabilo all black.

I cut the almanac page into “half-circles”, colored the background, added stamping with “Newspaper 2” stamp and stamped the sentiments with “Nicht Okay” stamp set.

and here a few more photos:

See you tomorrow again. Boy am I glad to have higher CT-levels again, even though I am still feeling a bit under the weather and my nose is still very clogged and I get tired still. It took the virus almost exactly 2 years to find me. Thank goodness I am vaccinated, would not want to see how it would have worked out without the jabs. And glad to be back to creating even if just slowly! Today was my first day of work after 10 days, boy I am DONE. Thank goodness weekend is around the corner; will need that additional rest still.

Take care lovelies,

Daily Art Practice – Day 7

Hello and happy Saturday! Here is my yesterday´ s daily art practice piece and the video. Keeping it short today – need to still do my today´ s page and edit a video ;-).

Notice, that I´ ve already added the past 3 day´ s tags to the page? See the video for more details.

And now to the video – hope you enjoy! I speeded it up just a tad. The original is still under 10 minutes, but I figured you might just want to see a more fast-forward-version? See you again tomorrow with another one!

Have a great weekend!

May stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone! It´s middle of the month, so it´s again time to put out a kind reminder to you guys that there is still plenty of time to join in on some stencil challenge fun at STAMPlorations. This months challenge is still live and we´d love to see you play along!

https://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2021/05/may-challenges-extras.html

For this months reminder post I again played in my art journal. This time creating a face. I´ve been doing #the100dayproject2021 over at my Insta account drawing faces on tags and try to do some faces also in my art journal (bigger size!!) from time to time. Once you get used to a smaller size, it´s not the easiest to scale into bigger size, so that definitely need some practizing. And what better place to add some fun stenciling, than a page with a face?!

I had rolled some leftover paint from my brayer into the background (pink salmon/peach and light blue) and it looked so good against the kraft paper that I wanted to paint a face around the colours. I used Neocolor 2 crayons for coloring and painting the face and Stabilo all black for outlining. I also hid some older rub-ons here and there onto the page.

And for finishing touches I used one of my stencils (Flowers 2) to create details to the face. Now is again your turn! Hoping to see you play along this month and submit lovely stenciled artwork to the May challenge!!!

Remember to play by the rules – otherwise you cannot be counted in for the monthly prizes!! You will find the rules at the end of the main challenge post always.

Also, like always, do take advantage of my discount code at the STAMPlorations store!! It´s 20% off your order :). See you at STAMPlorations, lovelies!!!

Happy stenciling,

Scribble stick face

Hello and happy Tuesday!! So I have been doing #the100dayproject for the first time and I´ve been drawing faces on tags for that. It´s almost done now and in between the smaller sized faces I did a few in my art journals too. This one, for example, was one done in just a few minutes with Scribble Sticks by Dina Wakley.

I challenged myself to draw a face as quikly as I could on a canvas page. It was tricky, as canvas moves under the crayon. I also just drew and didn´t presketch anything! Thus the wonky proportions :).

But it was really fun to try this out. I might leave this page as is or come back to it later and add bits and bobs or only use parts of the face or add tags on top. I haven´t figured that part out yet. But it was a fun exercise nevertheless!

We´ll see how this page develops from here ;-). Have a great day!
