#tuac5minchallenge – Day 18

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today´s #tuac5minchallenge take is now also done and dusted. Here is my take for this Wednesday:

For this piece I took a left over stenciled piece of paper that I had wiped the residue ink thru a stencil onto. Then I took random left over papers and added colour onto them with Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks, fussy cut them into clouds and added outlines for contrast with Posca pens. The fussy cut pinkish raindrops are from a dried out baby wipe that has plenty of colour on it. A very old Basic Grey sticker works as a perfect sentiment piece for this rain theme.

So sorry for the bad video today. I totally missed that you can only see parts of the project!! When I noticed it, it was too late… really cannot make a second one, can I? BUT in the end you will see the finished piece. Also I stopped the watch, then had difficulty adhering one of the fussy cut raindrops and did that and a bit shading over the time frame. So a little cheat moment there ;-).

Have a great evening!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 16

Hello and happy Monday! Whew, what a day this has been. Glad I could squeeze in the 5 mins to create and do the video… Therefore, just quickly sharing today´s The Ugly Art Club Day 16 #tuac5minchallenge:

And here is the video:

I did a random format again and also just concentrated on various media and random left over pieces that were on my table. I think it´s pure junk this time :). AND I love the colours on this piece! It´s slowly turning towards fall here and I tried to capture the summer feelings and colours on this one. I am not ready to let summer go. It was too short! I would need at least one more month for my spirit to gather some sunshine strength, but I cannot rule over the seasons, so I´m just left with colours from crayons here.. 😉

Have a good start into your new week!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 13

Hello and happy Friday & happy WEEKEND!!! Hope you will find some time to sit outside, maybe swim a little and just have fun & also get creative. Here is my Day 13 for the Ugly Art Club #tuac5minchallenge:

And here is the video:

I tried to make this less cute, but not quite succeeded. I used plenty of bits that were still on my table from the previous day´s take. And combined those with a postal stamp from my junk bag and some random sticker words. I will need to try and get back to more “ugly” not so cutesie style. I am not happy with where these are going. They don´t quite match the theme “ugly art”. Alone the colours make them look more cute than ugly. But at least I am keeping the in the time frame and getting junk pieces used.

See you again tomorrow! Have an awesome weekend!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 11

Hello and happy Wednesday! Mid week – yay!! Here is my take for Day 11 at The Ugly Art Club´s #tuac5minchallenge. Now that you already know what this is about I´ll just add the finished piece and the video every day to save time.

You can find all the steps in the video anyway, so no need to write them down and I also try to find alternative products (similar to the used ones) linked to the product list, just in case you want to create something similar yourself.

I again ran out of time. I would have wanted to add more, but forced myself to stop, because the challenge is about keeping the time frame in about 5 minutes.

It´s good practice to try and do only short periods. Usually, when I sit down and work on a project, hours just run by without me noticing. So it´s good to set a timer and show myself that sometimes only a little time is enough. And then there is plenty of time for other stuff too.

Have a great evening!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 4

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today it´s time to share another The Ugly Art Club #tuac5minchallenge with you. Here is my take for today:

Talk about candy colours there. I had a tiny sugar bag from some of my travels in a junk bag and a paperclay DIY frame I did a while back with a mold. And some stenciling on a black piece of cardstock from back in the day testing my STAMPlorations stencil designs on paper. The piece of lace is misted and was also in my junk bag. For the background I added a layer of Distress Stain, then some Dina Wakley crayons in black and the rest I just layered.

The video is again up on my YouTube channel too. Hope you like it. I must say I stopped the timer two times, because my adhesive was stuck in the bottle, so I had to get it running again. I thought that sould be ok, not to count such mishappenings into the total 5 minutes. The sentence “kleine Sünden” means translated: “small sins” and refers to the sugar bag piece in the frame..

See you again tomorrow!!!
