Do Good AJ page

Hello there and happy Monday evening! I´m stopping by to share an art journal page with you. This one is just random play, while trying to get my mind free of things bothering me.

How´s your Monday getting along? I feel drained after work today – already can hear my bed calling my name *LOL*. I think it´s partly because of the back paint I´ve been experiencing lately. Still some side-effects emerging from time to time, post surgery, I think.

Art usually helps – but I feel too tired for that even. What is your recipy for overcoming total tiredness? Except for the obvious – sleep? When I´m this drained, it usually affects my mood in a bad way and I really hate, when that happens. So if you have any tips for survival, I´m all ears!!!

Like mentioned before, this page is just a result of random play. I misted a background with spray ink, putting fussy cut circles here and there. Then I outlined the circles with black paint, waited for that layer to dry and added Distress Crayons. I also removed some of the crayon with a baby wipe (thru a stencil). That way the stencil pattern appears. The stamping is a planner stamp set by Elizabeth Craft Designs and other than that I used a STAMPlorations stencil to create the crackle paste images. For finishing touches I added a quote.

OK, that´s all from me today. I´m feeling bedtime coming earlier today 🙂

This week can only get better from here on 😀 – wishing you a lovely, creative week!!!

STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge reveal

Hello everyone and welcome to January 2020!!! Today it´s again time to share this months STAMPlorations challenges and today it´s Stencil Challenge Reveal time.

I again created an art journal page for this months challenge reveal – here it is:

For this page I´ve first added all kinds of color residues onto the background, then added stencil images with STAMPlorations Festive Boomdala stencil as well as some of my stencil line stencils, like the Lupinus one. Then I drew an abstract face onto the page, painted the background area black and added bits and bobs, like Japanese magazine bits here and there. Also, there are paint details as well as tissue paper pieces here and there. The sentiment on the black background just came to my mind when I was looking at the facial impression of my abstract girl image. So I added it to the page.

That´s my take for this months challenge. Remember, you can create anything, as long as you have used a stencil! Also remember the STAMPlorations reveal post on your blog and feature the challenge image on your blog to be eligible for the price. That´s it! Hope you play along with us!!! There are also prizes to be won – read more about the challenge HERE!!!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
