#tuac5minchallenge – DAY 9

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´m stopping by again with yet another The Ugly Art 5 min Challenge take. This, lovelies, is my take 9 for day 9. And I really, really, really like using these bold colours atm. I cannot get enough of them! Strong yellow and bright coral! Looove!

I wanted to use very old rub-ons on this one again (just basically to get them used, not having to throw them away). Well, it could have worked smoother… it took me ages to get ANY prints on that background, but finally I succeeded! And in the end I am very happy it´s not a perfect image/print there! Looks better the way it is.

In addition to the rub-ons I just simply dabbed some Distress Paint in delicious abandoned coral tone to the upper part of the paper and then misted it abit to make it “run” across the page. So love doing these droplets! And then I just added some tiny leftover misted ribbon pieces and adhered old book pages word here and there. For finishing touches it was Posca marker again! I love adding black contrast to my artwork.

See you again tomorrow!!!

Hello lovelies, Christmas is coming and before you know, it´s 2017!!! And speaking of 2017, have you already made thoughts about what you are going to do next year? Set goals? I haven´t :). I am just going to wait and see what the New Year has planned for me… And thus I created this art journal spread:

And this is what I used to create the galaxy/universe type of background:

There is lots of Tattered Angels spray inks (Chalkboard, Glimmer Mist and Simply Sheer) as well as some Decor&DIY paint in there. A stamp set, a white gel pen and a black marker. Other than that I used old book sheets and a vintage typewriter.   Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

I am sure you have seen lots of space/night sky backgrounds popping up on social media and created in a variety of ways. Don’t they just look good? I love them! So I have been wanting to create that kind of background myself for a while. But instead of grabbing stamp inks, I went for my favorite product, Tattered Angels spray inks. And they worked so well in my art journal. I combined Glimmer Mists, Chalkboard Mists and Simply Sheer products and believe me, the shimmer and glimmer is just gorgeous. It makes me really feel like I am somewhere in outer space when looking at it – even if I say so myself. The creating process is really simple to do.

The word “live” is hand written and fussy cut. The other words/sentiments are either stamped or written with my old typewriter. Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

Just look at that gorgeous shimmer and shine on the page!! It is truly amazing IRL!!!Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert Universe Art Journal spread - Sanna Lippert

So I haven´t really made any New Year´s promises for 2017 and I am not going to. I am just going to live the year as best as I can and in the end of next year I will see, where it took me :).

There is also a short video up over at my YouTube channel,  on how I created the galaxy background with the spray inks. Hope you like it!

Have fun creating,
