Alt genug

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s share is a mixed media piece, created using various leftover pieces from my „junk bag“. I was thinking I could frame this piece and give it away as a present to someone :).

On the background I have a gelli printed tissue piece, then some stenciling with Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. After that I´ ve got some Distress Paint and some Nuvo Shimmer Powder added to the background. The circles are from a leftover Glossy Spray sprayed piece. I just fussy cut them and added some outlining with a Posca pen. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment (using Klartext stamps) and a vintage figure that I also fussy cut out of a poster.

Here you can see some of the shimmer powder on the left bottom corner, by the way. I will add this piece to my „ugly art“ mixed media piece collection. I really enjoy doing these artworks, because it allows me to just play and add stuff without giving it too much thought.

Wishing you a great Thursday evening – it´ s almost Friday, lovelies!

Hello and happy Tuesday! It´ s a tag share kind of day today. I´ ve again used leftover pieces and went towards ugly art again for a change.

The background was a really ugly alcohol ink experiment piece what I cut into a tag shape and „un-uglied“ it as well as I could ;-). I added some Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays, some Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a stencil and a piece of gelli printed tissue paper. For a focal point I chose a Klartext stamp and a Collage Collective (also by Dina) face that I colored in with Distress Crayons and Gloss Spray.

I think she turned out pretty okay. I hope your day is great! I´ ll have a day off tomorrow (yay!), because someone I know once said one should not work on ones birthday ;-). So there, I´ m taking the day off and doing something nice!!

See you soon,

Flieg mit mir zum Mond

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again stopping by to share another „junk art“ piece. I gathered various bits and bobs from my junk bags together and they resulted in this piece:

It is a random piece of corrugated cardboard that I painted with Distress Paints and some Dina Wakley Gloss Spray first. Then I added some stamping with Klartext (by Dani Peuss) stamps with black ink and then took a glimmer misted jar lid and adhered that onto the piece. the vintage paper dolls are by Tim Holtz and they got little wings from residue paper pieces (old Basic Grey papers). Then some Nuvo Mousse stenciled and Gloss Spray misted paper to the side and a white ribbon piece I painted with Distress paints to go with it.

On top some wripped Prima flower petals and silver star puffy stickers and a stamped sentiment that says: „Fly with me to the moon“. The other word „mondsüchtig“ translates to „moonstruck“.

This piece could be hung on a wall on it´ s own or framed in a 3D frame. I really like how it turned out and it is junk art again, which makes me very happy. BUT it didn´ t take me only 5 minutes to make it – it took a tad longer :).

Have a great evening,

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 25

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m sharing my Day 25 take for the #tuac5minchallenge (by The Ugly Art Club). Here it is:

I totally wanted to do another one with a vintage lady on it, but then decided otherwise and in the end I´m happy I did. Always repeating oneself is not very creative, is it? So I changed the subject abit and used up all kinds of bits that I had left over from previous pieces (or bits from my junk bags).

I had a fab 5 minutes making this one! Looove the colours together! Did you notice I built a heart from two dried pumpking seeds? Talk about junk there :).

Hope your day was fabulous! See you tomorrow!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 23

Hello and happy Monday! I wish your Monday was not as busy as mine was? It´s going to be a few rough weeks ahead of me, but hey, at least there is still art to help to relax :). This is my Day 23 share for the Ugly Art Club 5 min challenge:

I came home and did a quick one today. I love using these vintage girls lately. So I added another one for today´s piece.

Other than that it´s Dina Wakley Media Gloss Sprays and Tim Holtz Distress Crayons on the background. Also some Nuvo Crackle Paste and one stenicl of mine (by Stamplorations). The text is from a really old school music note book ;-).

This one came together really fast and without thinking much. I am starting to wonder if I can ever do longer periods of creating, as I am getting used to doing only 5 minutes a day ;-).

See you tomorrow,
xxx, Sanna
