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,

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 5th

Hello everyone, without further ado, here is April 5th page from my daily art journal. I create these pages using the Artist Almanac 2022 as my starting point.

I took a little break from daily creating and am badly behind, but now I again feel like creating, so I continued. I might not finish by the end of the year, but is that so important? It´ s more important to enjoy the process in my opinion.

For this page I used a piece of paper where I wiped residue paints and inks and stuff into as the background. I then added some sticker mail stamps and a few sentiments from a magazine to go with the almanac page. I tried to match the colours and look of the original page.

That´ s all for today, folks :). See you again in a few days with more!

Daily Art Practice – Day 81

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s daily art practice page is done and dusted. Here is day 81:

I used Distress Paints, Neocolor 2´ s and Poscas on a book page and added a Klartext stamp sentiment on top. I went the easy way for this one, because I didn´ t have a particular idea how to use this bold pattern otherwise.

and now some detail photos:

See you again tomorrow with another daily art practice piece. Hope you are all doing okay!!

Daily Art Practice – Day 63

Hello and happy Saturday! Today´ s daily art practice piece is done and dusted. I didn´ t really feel like creating, this whole situation that is going on in Ukraine and the state of the world atm. just makes me feel that way. Therefore I just cut and adhered pieces onto the page basically.

Nothing really felt good when creating this page, so I ended up adding black washi tape across it and some thick Posca marker around the edges. It just felt good to make this type of page today. Not really feeling artsy with what is going on.

Here are a few detail photos:

Hoping you are speding some time with loved ones today and just enjoying the time together. Take care,
