Shine bright

Hello and happy Sunday! It´ s been almost two years that I had a cold. And then just like that it was here… I feel like s….! But keeping my spirits high with tea and then some more tea and some medicine against the cold. So my card share for today is a bit ironic, as I am not shining bright today at all, but in the hope it lifts some spirits, I´ ll share it today with you guys.

For this card I again used some of my STAMPlorations stencils with their stamps and clear stickers. On the background I have used Distress Paints and Gansai Tambi watercolors. Just some quick and fun play.

I hope you manage to stay healthy this fall!! I´ m feeling so under the weather and it´ s something I truly haven´ t missed. But at least we were able to finish off some important construcktion works in our garden, before this virus hit me. I am just going to give my body the time it now needs and then I´ ll be on my feet again soon again.

Take care and stay healthy!!!

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!

Flieg mit mir zum Mond

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again stopping by to share another „junk art“ piece. I gathered various bits and bobs from my junk bags together and they resulted in this piece:

It is a random piece of corrugated cardboard that I painted with Distress Paints and some Dina Wakley Gloss Spray first. Then I added some stamping with Klartext (by Dani Peuss) stamps with black ink and then took a glimmer misted jar lid and adhered that onto the piece. the vintage paper dolls are by Tim Holtz and they got little wings from residue paper pieces (old Basic Grey papers). Then some Nuvo Mousse stenciled and Gloss Spray misted paper to the side and a white ribbon piece I painted with Distress paints to go with it.

On top some wripped Prima flower petals and silver star puffy stickers and a stamped sentiment that says: „Fly with me to the moon“. The other word „mondsüchtig“ translates to „moonstruck“.

This piece could be hung on a wall on it´ s own or framed in a 3D frame. I really like how it turned out and it is junk art again, which makes me very happy. BUT it didn´ t take me only 5 minutes to make it – it took a tad longer :).

Have a great evening,

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 25

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m sharing my Day 25 take for the #tuac5minchallenge (by The Ugly Art Club). Here it is:

I totally wanted to do another one with a vintage lady on it, but then decided otherwise and in the end I´m happy I did. Always repeating oneself is not very creative, is it? So I changed the subject abit and used up all kinds of bits that I had left over from previous pieces (or bits from my junk bags).

I had a fab 5 minutes making this one! Looove the colours together! Did you notice I built a heart from two dried pumpking seeds? Talk about junk there :).

Hope your day was fabulous! See you tomorrow!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 21

Hello and happy Saturday! Like I mentioned yesterday, it has been a rough week this week at work. And I´m afraid it´s going to be a few more until it get´s better again. Therefore, I felt drawn to a more „dark“ piece today. To get all the stress out of my system. This is day 21 of The Ugly Art Club´s 5 min challenge:

I used plenty of Dina Wakley gloss sprays on the background with wiped off Distress paint (from a stencil) with a baby wipe on the background. I love the dark and random patterns. A piece of residue paper worked as a base for a hand drawn silhouette. Some dried out baby wipe made for a perfect ruffle and base for a fussy cut sentiment.

This piece made me feel so much better. Hope your day is a good one!
