Arschkarte

Hello and happy Wednesday! We all know how it feels to draw the short straw… This card is exactly about that. I did a junk art / ugly art style card with Gloss Sprays, stenciling, gel printing, embossing enamel and some Dina Wakley collage collective pieces, combined with Klartext stamps.

This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites! It suits so many everyday situations and has perfect sentiments for those „not so perfect“ days. A mixed media heavy background works so well with this stamp set, too. I really enjoyed creating this card!

And I even managed to add in some bits from my junk bags. I´ ve previously used the ribbon for gel printing and saved the inked pieces for later – they work so well on this card and nothing goes to waste!

Hope your Wednesday was great!? I had a really nice day chatting with a friend, who I haven´ t seen in ages! By the way, If you´ d like to see a card video tutorial for a change, do stop by on my blog on Sunday, when I´ ll be sharing a set of cards created for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

See you then,

Alt genug

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s share is a mixed media piece, created using various leftover pieces from my „junk bag“. I was thinking I could frame this piece and give it away as a present to someone :).

On the background I have a gelli printed tissue piece, then some stenciling with Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. After that I´ ve got some Distress Paint and some Nuvo Shimmer Powder added to the background. The circles are from a leftover Glossy Spray sprayed piece. I just fussy cut them and added some outlining with a Posca pen. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment (using Klartext stamps) and a vintage figure that I also fussy cut out of a poster.

Here you can see some of the shimmer powder on the left bottom corner, by the way. I will add this piece to my „ugly art“ mixed media piece collection. I really enjoy doing these artworks, because it allows me to just play and add stuff without giving it too much thought.

Wishing you a great Thursday evening – it´ s almost Friday, lovelies!

Hello and happy Tuesday! It´ s a tag share kind of day today. I´ ve again used leftover pieces and went towards ugly art again for a change.

The background was a really ugly alcohol ink experiment piece what I cut into a tag shape and „un-uglied“ it as well as I could ;-). I added some Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays, some Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a stencil and a piece of gelli printed tissue paper. For a focal point I chose a Klartext stamp and a Collage Collective (also by Dina) face that I colored in with Distress Crayons and Gloss Spray.

I think she turned out pretty okay. I hope your day is great! I´ ll have a day off tomorrow (yay!), because someone I know once said one should not work on ones birthday ;-). So there, I´ m taking the day off and doing something nice!!

See you soon,

Auf dem Weg..

Hello and happy Monday, today´s mixed media 5 minute piece is again done with Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and onto an old book page. In addition a alcohol ink & die cut piece with an old button and a junk metal piece create a focal point.

Some Posca´s in black and white and a Klartext stamp stamped sentiment to add detail. Very much random and very „junk“ art style / ugly art style piece. Just fun playtime after work :).

This time no video, just a quick photo share. Hope your Monday was good!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 29

Hello and happy Sunday! It was a gorgeous sunshine day today and I am a fan of sunshine weather. So I spent most of my day outside doing some gardening. Today´s #tuac5minchallenge piece is maybe therefore somewhat related to that with the big leaves on the piece :).

I got this gorgeous paper from my son and his girlfriend as a gift from their plant orders. They do know me well to offer me such pieces, right? How could I say no to that paper? 😀

The flower is plain junk pieces. I first tried to cut a freehand flower with scissors, but it didn´t work out, so I just cut circles to mimic a flower. A flower button in the middle and some Nuvo Glitter in the center. I added the green dots of Dina´s Gloss Spray after finishing recording. I just felt the piece needed a little splatter in then end :).

Hope your weekend was lovely, see you tomorrow for DAY 30!!!
