Daily Art Practice – Day 25

Happy Wednesday! Today´ s page is again in brown tones due to the almanac pages colours. I simply cut off a piece of the white paper I am working on (and always wiping residue media into..) and added that to the background with the almanac page.

Some leftover book pages and gesso on top. Then a fussy cut vintage photo (how cool does he look?!) and a stamped Denglisch sentiment. That´ s pretty much it. And the video is here:

Also some detail photos, as always:

The Denglisch sentiment translates to: “For God´ s sake!”. I really like how this page looks like. Just the way he looks already makes me smile ;-).

Hope your day was a good one! Take care, xxx, Sanna

#the100dayproject – Days 61-65

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I´m drawing a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag. If you want to follow me face drawing journey „live“, you should follow my Instagram account (here). And you can also watch the videos directly on my YouTube channel (here).

There was a point in drawing these faces when I felt in the “zone”. It might not be perfect, what I drew, but it felt natural and good. I no longer was scared of the process and didn´t worry much about the result, I just drew. One day after another. And I started to notice development in my drawings. Some things had gotten easier to draw. Adding shadows was not so scary anymore. Development, even if small :)!

Happy drawing,

My take on face drawing is an artsy, abstract one. I am not trying to learn how to draw realistic faces, because at the moment a) it is not my interest and b) I don´t think I am very good at that type of drawings. But this type of mixed media face drawing just interests me very much and I also enjoy it a lot!

I´ve still got quite a few days to go until day 100, but it has been lots of fun so far. So be sure to come back to take a look of the next 5 :). I wish you all an amazing week!!!

Happy crafting,

“one-line” face

Hello and happy Tuesday! I´ve been doing #the100dayproject for over 70 days now and in between the drawn tags I also did a few experiments in my Ranger art journal. Here is one of them – a “one-line” face:

I drew this one on a page I had pressed some wet Nuvo Embellishment mousse residue onto and then just using my Stabilo all black pencil drew a face never lifting the pencil from the paper.

It turned out very masculine and I really like how the lips and eye areas look like. I didn´t want to add anything else to the page (for now). Maybe later I might add some journaling, stenciling or paint details to it, but I am still just admiring it as it is.

Wishing you a lovely day!

#the100dayproject – Days 11-15

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m again stopping by to share my next faces drawn on tags for my personal #100daysoffaces 2021 challenge. If you want to see them go live every day, then you should follow my Instagram account for the daily posts. I´ll share them here on my blog in groups with links to the videos.

Day 11

This tag is die cut from white carstock with a STAMPlorations tag die and I´ve added a hue of indian ink as a stripe on it. After that I just drew the face with Posca´s very quickly and added some shading.

Day 12

For this tag I´ve again used white cardstock, then die cut it with a STAMPlorations tag die (see product list at the end of this post) and applied green and yellow spray ink onto it. The faces are again drawn and coloured with Posca pens.

Day 13

This tag is die cut from a woodgrain paper and then covered partly with white gesso. On top of that I´ve sketched a face with a pencil and added shadows with a black Posca.

Day 14

For this tag I´ve firs played with my gel plate from Gelli Arts with acrylic paints and my stencils. Next I´ve drawn a face with Neocolor 2 pens. The splatters were added with a water tank brush in the end.

Day 15

This is a grey cardstock paper, die cut with a STAMPlorations tag die. Then painted partly with black paint and after that drawn and coloured using Neocolor 2´s again.

As always, go and see the short videos for each tag on my YouTube channel. You´ll find the link to a particular tag always immediately under the photo. Hope you enjoy them!

Have a great day!
