Daily Art Practice – May 13th

Hello and happy Wednesday! Here is another page from my DAP-Journal again:

I used Gelatos and Neocolors with Stabilo all black pen and added some Klartext stamping on top. This was a fun one to do, playing with the numbers.

We have a national holiday today, so I´ ll just drop this here and go back enjoying some family time and time off.

Have a great day, everyone!

Daily Art Practice – April 29th

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am stopping by to share another daily art practice journal page with you. These are always created using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I used white gesso on the background, then added Neocolor II crayons on top and mixed them with water. When everything was dry, I added pencil marks on top and finished the page off with another Klartext stamp sentiment. Fun and fast this time!

I also found the page so suitable with the sentiment on it and the accompanying sentiment that I added. Mine translates to: “Before you ask: no”. And yes, there is panic in the air stil. I was hoping my surgery would solve that problem, but it didn´ t yet, so I am still continuing this journey apparently. Thus the page just matches my recent feelings very well. Therefore it was very therapeutic to create it!

For me, crafting is therapy, I get to process feelings on pages and it always, always helps. I wonder if anyone of you does the same? Would love to hear how it has helped you guys.

Take care,

Daily Art Practice – April 28th

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am again stopping by to share another Daily Art Journal Practice page with you. This is again done using the Artistic Almanac as the starting point.

For this page I used a piece of kitchen roll that has similar colours of ink on it already (yes, I save some of those if I like the colours!). On top of that I just added Stabilo black marks. Then I took a piece of fabric and colored it with crayons in red, orange and yellow. After spraying water the colours mixed nicely together.

After they were dry, I adhered them on place and added stamped Klartext sentiments on top. This page turned out really nice in my opinion. I like the texture and the colours here alot!

See you tomorrow with another share!

Daily Art Practice – April 24th

Hello and happy Monday! 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 again created a similar image on “my side” of the page, as on the almanac page. I used Posca pens, Stabilo all black pen, a “handmade” stamp” from my stash and Klartext stamps as well as Faber-Castell Gelatos. On the background I have old book pages and some Neocolor II crayons too.

It was much easier to create this page again than the previous one. I don´ t know what it is, maybe the colours, that sometimes make creating hard. But it´ s always good to challenge oneself, right?

Hope you enjoyed today´ s share!
Take care,

Daily Art Practice – March 24th

Hello and happy Wednesday! I am at it again – after a longer break. Here is another piece for my year-long daily art practice art journal with the Artist Almanac page of March 24th.

I just felt like adding her come crazy hair, so I did :). It´ s basically just paper leftover bits cut into strands of hair. I felt she needed that. Or maybe I need that sunshine in my life. Immediately brightened her look up. Didn´ t want to see her sad.

After that I just glued them on place, added some Faber-Castell gelatos and Stabilo all black and a stamped sentiment with Klartext stamps.

Lots of fun were had making this one. I know I am late and very behind, but I needed that little break from this journal after covid. I just didn´ t feel like creating any pages the past weeks. I hardly had energy to go to work. Now that things are getting better I am at it again. And sometimes other things are more important. It´ s okay to take a break and it´ s ok not to feel like creating. When that happens, I just wait and soon enough I feel the need to do some creative work again. And then it also feels good and right.

I hope you are as happy to see me continue this journal as I felt doing this page. See you with more soon!
Have a great day!
