Daily Art Practice – April 27th

Hello and happy Thursday! 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 only Neocolor II crayons and a pencil as well as a Stabilo all black pen. I tried to create a similar look to my side of the page again.

For additional detail I again used Klartext stamps on top of everything.

I hope you week is getting along nicely! See you again tomorrow, but this time, with a layout share again :).

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,

Nachbarschaft erkunden – Dani Peuss

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing yet another layout that I created using the Dani Peuss September 2022 main kit. Again sticking with the A4 format for this page too:

I wanted to use the yellow lovely background paper (Dani Peuss collection) with something garden related, so I scrapped some photos from past May when we visited a plant and gardens show.

From this sideways taken photo you can see that I used a thin layer of white gesso on the background to create a “frame” for the photos. I haven´ t done that in a while, but it sure give a page more struckture immediately.

All the embellishments on this page are again from the Simple Stories Let´ s Go! collection that also came with the kit. I fussy cut the tag into two pieces to elongate it and bring more composition to the page. The stamping is all done using various Klartext stamps (“Auf großer Reise”, “Österreich” and “Staycation”).

In addition to the background paper I used a second Dani Peuss paper on this page. See the fussy cut leaves on the upper and lower corners? I cut them from one of the papers and used them as decor here – just matches the garden and plant theme so well :).

For the journaling I used both stamps and a hand written story. And I again sneaked some black Stabilo all pen splatters here and there. I used the do splatters on every layout I did and they seem to be making a comeback again :).

I hope I could inspire you with this layout a little bit!! See you again next week with another layout (or maybe even a mini for a change again!!).

Until then, take care,
xxx, Sanna


Daily Art Practice – April 11th

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am stopping by to share another page from my Daily Art Journal practice book. Again done with the Artist Almanac 2022 as my starting point. Here is what I did:

I simply desided to continue the townscape in similar style. Obviously it´ s not as good as the original one, but if you don´ t pay too much detail to my “houses”, it kind of feels like you are in the middle of a town square. I used Neocolor II´ s on this page with Stabilo all black.

Also the stamped sentiment is again by Klartext and translates to: “It is nowhere as nice as it is at home”.

Wishing you a great weekend!

Daily Art Practice – April 8th

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am quickly sharing another page from my Daily Art Practice journal for 2022. All the pages have the Artist Almanac 2022 pages as a starting point/inspiration. Here is April 8th:

For this page I again gathered plenty of small paper scraps I had saved in a small jar and adhered them to the background. Some of them are residues from past pages, some are from scrapbooking layouts.

I also added some gesso, Stabilo Woody´ s and Stabilo all black pencil marks here and there, plus of course used a Klartext stamp to add the sentiment to the page. It translates to: “Don´ t let idiots ruin your day”.

Have a good day and a fabulous weekend!
