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!!

Daily Art Practice – March 29th

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am sharing another page from my daily art journal after a LONG break. I haven´ t been posting these for a long time, because recording and edition a video EVERY SINGLE DAY was just too much!

I then took a break from the complete journal (daily) creating, because it was so overwhelming to do. Only now I have again felt good to go back to the journal and create in it. But this time without the hustle of recording a daily video! It´ s just too much. I have a life to run, too, you know :). So I have changed my plans. I will share pages in my pace here and then maybe do a flip-thru of the pages every end of month.

So this is what I did with March 29 Artist Almanac page. I created the background with Distress Paints, Stabilo all an crayons. Then I fussy cut words from am magazine to go with everything. It felt good to do a tiny page again – and without pressure.

So thanks for stopping by and taking a look. There will be more shares now that I have found a way to make and share these that works for my busy daily life. I won´ t be able to catch up, but I will gradually share all makes. Bit by bit.

See you around,
xxx, Sanna

Daily Art Practice – Day 47

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s art piece is done and dusted again. I did a bigger (full) page this time again.

I used Distress Paints again on the background, then added the daily almanac piece as a circle and plenty of asemic writing behind it.

On top of all that there is date stamp rows – very random and some dried out baby wipe fabric ruffled and a fortune cookie sentiment on top of that.

The lady on top is a Dina Wakley stamp and was colored with Distress Crayons. The rays are a Tim Holtz Sizzix die-cut metallic paper that got inked with alcohol inks. Finally also some circles made with Gelatos and Stabilo all black.

Today´ s stamp sentiment is again by Klartext (Denglisch) and translates to: “Look at them go!”. Wishing you a fabulous day,
xxx, Sanna

Good Stuff layout – Dani Peuss

Hallo ihr Lieben! (*for English, just hit the translate button on the right sidebar*) Ich habe wieder gescrappt!! Dieses Mal ein Layout mit gaaanz viele Herzchen :).

Die Papiere stammen wieder aus dem Dani Peuss Februar Scrapbooking Hauptkit und die sind meine absoluten Favoriten seit langem. Ich mag die fröhlichen, bunten Farben, die mich an Zuckerwatte erinnern, wirklich sehr. So habe ich mich dazu entschieden, ein Valentinstags-Layout zu gestalten. Dazu gibt es auch ein Start-To-Finish-Video auf meinem YouTube Kanal & hier natürlich auch :).

Am Hintergrund habe ich Distress Paints in hellpink, hellgelb und minzgrün verwendet. Alle Links zu den Produkten findet ihr übrigens in der Auflistung am Ende dieses Postings.

Die Herzchen habe ich mit den Elizabeth Craft Designs Herz-dies und meiner Big-Shot Die-Cutting-Maschine geschnitten. Der Stickerbook, der im Kit inkluidert ist, ist übrigens genial, da sind so viele verschiene Arten von Sticker drinnen. Wirklich etwas für jeden Anlass. Dann dazu die Ephemera und man ist gleich im Embellishment-Himmel ;-). Das sieht man auf meinem Layout auch gut, dass ich dort angekommen war ;-).

Das Stempelset, den ich verwendet habe, ist übrigens auch von Dani Peuss (Klartext Nr. 1243 “Die Story“). Da habe ich den Spruch einfach passend gemacht, in dem ich die überflüssigen/unnötigen Wörter einfach durchgestrichen habe.

Ich hoffe mein Layout inspiriert Euch auch zum Scrappen!! Wünsche Euch viel Spass dabei!

Trifecta cardmaking in monochromatic style – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy Sunday! Starting this October, you will see me create cards with step-by-step and/or video tutorials using the STAMPlorations 3S-products. What is that, you ask? It´ s Stamps, Stencils and Stickers -> 3 S´ s – also known as Trifecta cards. Today is my first share and I am sooo excited! See, these are the things I really, really like to use! You know by now that I love to use stencils – always have and always will. And stamping, well, there is hardly any piece I make that I don´ t add stamping onto. And clear stickers are just a perfect addition to my design style. I hope you will enjoy my Trifecta posts throught this design team year!

For my first feature post I´ ve decided to use just one of each products and create 3 different cards with the exact same products. Slight modifications in color and placement result in different kind of cards. And still they all are easy to do and even make multiples of, while you are at it anyway.

On my first card I used the Discs stencil with transparent gloss texture paste mixed together with Mustard Seed Distress Paint to create the texture to the card background that I had previously misted with yellow spray ink. Next I added stamping into the open area of the background using the Hello You stamp set and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. After that I took a piece of yellow patterned paper and stamped and fussy cut the camera images and arranged them onto the card background. The stamp set used here was again the Hello You set. For finishing touches I added a Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiment that I had matted with the same patterned paper I used on the camera images. After finishing all the steps I adhered the paper onto a slimline sized card base and outlined the edges with a black pen for more contrast. 

On my second card I used the same Discs stencil with transparent gloss texture paste mixed together with Peeled Paint Distress Paint to create the texture to the card background that I had previously misted with kiwi-toned spray ink. Next I added some stamping into the open areas of the background using the Hello You stamp set and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide.  However, I didn´t like the look of it, so I changed my plan and just added more stamp ink with a water tank brush over the stamped areas (good thing, this ink is water reactive, so you can correct as you go!) to create different toned green areas to the background. I also did some paint splatters on top of it all with the Distress Paint tone I used with the paste previously. That adds nice contrast to the background and pleased my eye more than the randomly stamped sentiments! After that I took a piece of yellow patterned paper and stamped and fussy cut the camera images and arranged them onto the card background. The stamp set used here was again the Hello You set. For finishing touches I added a Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiment that I had matted with the same patterned paper I used on the camera images. After finishing all the steps I adhered the paper onto a slimline sized card base and outlined the edges with a black pen for more contrast. 

On my third card I used the same Discs stencil with transparent gloss texture paste mixed together with Pcked Raspberry Distress Paint to create the texture to the card background that I had previously misted with light pink-toned spray ink. Next I added some stamping into the open areas of the background using the Hello You stamp set and Bubble Gum mid-tone shadow ink.  After that I took a piece of pink patterned paper and stamped and fussy cut the camera images and arranged them onto the card background. The stamp set used here was again the Hello You set. For finishing touches I added a Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiment that I had matted with the same patterned paper I used on the camera images. After finishing all the steps I adhered the paper onto a slimline sized card base and outlined the edges with a black pen for more contrast. 
Here is a quick photo step-by-step for deteails: 

Step 1: Add spray ink in green, pink and yellow tones to slimline size cut white cardstock.

Step 2: Mix Distress paint in Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint with Transparent Texture Paste and apply thru the Discs-stentil onto the backgrounds. Notice how everything is tone-in-tone for a more homogenous look. Also if you add the stencilng only partially, you can create a totally different backgorund look!

Step 3: Now add stamping with the Hello You stamp set to the background using stamp inks in similar tones. I used Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber, Bubble Gum Shadow Ink and Moved Lawn Distress Oxide to add to the monochromatic look of the background.

Step 4: Stamp camera images on matching toned patterned papers and fussy cut them. Then arrange onto the card and adhere on place. Finish the pieces off with Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiments and adhere the finished pieces onto card bases. 

You now have yourself three monochromatic slimline cards created with Stamps, Stencils and Stickers (Trifecta magic!) and even though we used the exact same products on all three cards, the results are still very different due to used colorus and placement.

And pssst… if you now want to stock up on your STAMPlorations stash, here is a nice discount code for you to use:

Thanks for stopping by today – I hope I could inspire you to try out the 3S-combination yourself!! Have fun!
