#tuac5minchallenge – Day 16

Hello and happy Monday! Whew, what a day this has been. Glad I could squeeze in the 5 mins to create and do the video… Therefore, just quickly sharing today´s The Ugly Art Club Day 16 #tuac5minchallenge:

And here is the video:

I did a random format again and also just concentrated on various media and random left over pieces that were on my table. I think it´s pure junk this time :). AND I love the colours on this piece! It´s slowly turning towards fall here and I tried to capture the summer feelings and colours on this one. I am not ready to let summer go. It was too short! I would need at least one more month for my spirit to gather some sunshine strength, but I cannot rule over the seasons, so I´m just left with colours from crayons here.. 😉

Have a good start into your new week!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 15

Hello and happy Sunday! Without further ado I´m just going to put Day 15 of the Ugly Art Club 5 min challenge take up here on my blog :). Here it is:

And here is the video for you to watch:

I changed the format again. Just grabbed random leftover pieces to build a collage that I could/might add to an artwork at some point. I used plently of junk pieces here and also incorporated a medicine bottle cap for “stamping” :). Very proud of myself :).

Have a great Sunday!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 11

Hello and happy Wednesday! Mid week – yay!! Here is my take for Day 11 at The Ugly Art Club´s #tuac5minchallenge. Now that you already know what this is about I´ll just add the finished piece and the video every day to save time.

You can find all the steps in the video anyway, so no need to write them down and I also try to find alternative products (similar to the used ones) linked to the product list, just in case you want to create something similar yourself.

I again ran out of time. I would have wanted to add more, but forced myself to stop, because the challenge is about keeping the time frame in about 5 minutes.

It´s good practice to try and do only short periods. Usually, when I sit down and work on a project, hours just run by without me noticing. So it´s good to set a timer and show myself that sometimes only a little time is enough. And then there is plenty of time for other stuff too.

Have a great evening!

#tuac5minchallenge – DAY 10

Hello and happy Tuesday! It´s day 10 with the Ugly Art Club 5 min challenge for me – I cannot believe I have made it to day 10 already (and btw. I still have no idea whatsoever on how long this challenge will continue..). But here is day 10:

I´ve changed the format and did a tag this time. I still have some pre-prepared tags from the face drawing challenge left over and I thought it would be a good place to use them up. And it´s good to have some bits prepared already when you start with the 5 minutes… because it´s VERY short a time frame.

I personally find that this challenge is way harder for me than the face drawing one. Why? Because I am supposed to do something else every day in such a short time frame. And there is only so much you can do. Doing heavy media would mean drying times. And I´m way too impatient to wait for the next day :-D. I want to finish in that time frame. Therefore it gets harder to decide what to do each day. But should I find myself stressing too much about it, I will change the process and just start one piece, do a few steps, let dry and work on it again the next day. But today was fun. Simple and easy steps and got lots of junk used up too. Win win :).

I also lost a piece of book paper (very tiny) while filming and spend a ages looking for it – never found it. So you´d think that by now I knew I should prepare everything BEFOREHAND, but I still loose pieces, seach for stuff and be my chaotic self. And that in the 5 minutes frame is just dumb. But that´s just me.

I hope you still enjoy the video and the art piece I made. See you again tomorrow!

#tuac5minchallenge – DAY 7

Hello and happy Saturnday! It´s been a day, let me tell you! Lots of working in the garden (we have a little construction going on there). I wish we can finish the project before winter comes. So my 5 min take on DAY 7 for the Ugly Art Club challenge is very simple.

It´s just some pearlescent watercolor on the background in silver and grey and a piece of tissue that was already on my table from a happy mail I received recently. I added some old rub-ons, some twine and a Heidi Swapp star on top. Plus a fussy cut sentiment from a magazine.

I like how it turned out, but I am missing droplets on this one. White ones! I just didn´t have any time for those in the end. Might add them later :). I hope you enjoy these 5 min videos I´ve been recording and give you some inspiration too. I am very much enjoying this challenge and always excited to see what other people make! Follow the hashtag to see what everyone makes.

Happy crafting,
