Daily Art Journal – May 7th

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Journal page from my journal. This is May 7th:

For this page I used pearlescent watercolours on the background to mimic the almanac´ s colours. I added some hair to the face by drawing it with a Stabilo all black pencil. then I drew leaves onto the background using the same pen.

The face got Neocolor 2 pink cheeks and I also again added a “Denglish” stamp sentiment (by Klartext) onto the page.

I hope you enjoyed today´ s inpiration post. See you again tomorrow!

Daily Art Journal – May 5th

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am again sharing another page from my “DAJ” (daily art journal). Here is may 5th:

I used Neocolor 2 crayons for this one again and pearlescent watercolours for the background.

And I added again a Klartext “Denglish” stamp image onto the page. This means translated into proper english something like: enjoy your life to the fullest. That is a good reminder for a Sunday, isn´ t it?

Have a great one!

Daily Art Practice – May 2nd

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am again stopping by to share another Daily Art Practice piece with you.

For this page I used magazine pages as well as old book pages to mimic the colours and patterns on the original almanac page (Artistic Almanac 2022). And the idea worked out quite nicely.

I used pearlescent golden watercolour on the top, Posca pens and white gesso towards the bottom and in the middle some Distress Crayons. And finished the page off with a Klartext stamp again.

Hope your week is getting along nicely! I have started speech therapy after the surgery and so far it is going well. I am also very happy to have a voice again and to be able to use it. It will take at least 6 months to recover, but I am on a good path.

Take care, everyone!

Daily Art Practice – April 25th

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice page from my journal. This one, again, is done using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I simply used pearlescent watercolours on a partly gessoed page and then added marks with a white Signo uni-ball pen on top after the watercolour had dried.

I find the artistic almanac very inspiring, because thru every single page one is challenged to try out something one has possibly not tried to do before. Now, some may say I am just copying the particular day´ s page and not doing anything unique with it. TRUE also, BUT I am also testing out ideas and techniques other creatives have to see how if feels like and maybe thru this process will learn something new and also might develop my own personal way of creating. This is why I enjoy this almanac so much. It´ s about the personal creative developent and challenge for me.

Have a great week, lovelies!

Daily Art Practice – April 22nd

Hello and happy Saturday! 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 used pearlescent watercolours to paint the tree and the background pattern and then added some pencils marks here and there as well as a fussy cut sentiment from a leftover project piece.

I hope you are still enjoying these pieces I share.. I promise there will be also other project shares up very soon and not only these :). Some of you have been asking, by the way, if there will be an Artistic Almanac 2023: there will be one! So if you are looking for one, try following one of the artists contributing (for example: Tina Walker and Birgit Koopsen).

See you soon,
xxx, Sanna
