Daily Art Practice – April 30th

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing the last page of September in in my Daily Art Practice Journal which I create using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as my starting point. Also I have a flip-thru video of the month of April for you to see on my YT channel.

For this page I had a hard time figuring out, what to do with the almanac page this time. I have done a few of these brown toned pieces earlier and I didn´ t want to do anything similar. So I just cut the page into pieces and then added them onto a painted background with lots of asemic writing on it. For finishing touches I used a Stabilo all pen, a Signo uni-ball white pen and a Klartext stamp.

The stamp means something like this in english: “The devil is going to take care of it”. Meaning, if someone is being mean to you, don´ t let is ruin your day, because eventually the devil is going to take care of it.

And now here is the video flip-thru for you to watch – hope you enjoy it:

See you again tomorrow with another share, this time for the month of May :).

Take care,

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 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!

Daily Art Practice – April 20

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing yet another page from my Daily Art Practice Journal 2022 which I create using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as my starting point.

For this page I just continued the pattern of the almanac page and added some Klartext stamp stamping on top. I just love this almanac page and tried to continue the same feeling “on my side of the page”.

I used iridescent watercolour paints with acrylic paints, gesso and Neocolor II crayons here. Also, here on the very top you can see the stamping of the day 19 peeking. I missed that part in my previous posts´ photos ;-).

So I have been telling you bits about my surgery, but there are parts that did not go to plan and I haven´ t talked about yet. Becuase I have been a) recovering from the fact that it´ s not all as it is supposed to be and b) processing the news for myself the past week.

After surgery situation is that my left vocal cord got injured. If the injury is permanent, one cannot tell yet. It will either stay as is or recover in time (this might take 4-6 weeks). So you can imagine how I´ ve been worried and scared the past days. I know there are more horrible things to happen to someone, but I use my voice every day and when it´ s not working, it is scary. I truly hope it will get better during the next weeks.

I know we all carry something with us that the others know nothing of, so therefore, I send you all my very best wishes, strength with whatever you are struggling with and a virtual hug! Take care!

Have a great day!!
