Daily Art Practice – Day 75

Hello and happy Sunday! This is my take I was supposed to share on Thursday, but never came to it. Having sick peeps in the household just doesn´ t allow much of sharing on the creative front. So now, between myself getting sick and the others feeling a bit better, I am sharing the past days takes.

I honestly don´ t know what I was thinking when I boldly announced I´ d be sharing a post & a video a day for a full year. Not only, that the creating on it´ s own will demand a certain time frame DAILY, but also preparing the videos and taking the photos will add to that. LOL! Yes, it was a bold plan that was doomed to go wrong from the beginning on. But, I made it almost 70 days in a row. Working full time and then fitting all the “dailies” in was a big effort.

And now, having Corona visit our household after two years of being “safe” just threw all nicely layed plans off board. Well, such is life and we run with it whatever it throws on our way, right? It´ s not only been a rough week, it´ s been kinda a rough year so far. I am going to do these 290 or so days, but just cannot promise I am going to be able to catch up and do one a day on the exact day, as I am already late with these. There will be weeks like this in the future too, I suppose. So hope you are still sticking in there with me even though there will be undeliberate breaks between posts, like this week has been.

For this one I used watercolours mainly, then some gesso with my stencil design from STAMPlorations and a Klartext Grunge stamp set. Plus a Klartext sentiment stamp.

Hope life is treating you good at your end! Sending lot´ s of good thoughts to you all. Not only that there is the war and all the horrible things going on at the moment, life has been trowing stones on my path lately. It feels like every time I think I am getting on top of it, life is looking down on me and saying: “Oh, no you don´ t! So you survived that, but let´ s see how you can manage this.” And then trows another obstacle my way. I wonder when there is finally some light at the end of this neverending tunnel. I could use some sunshine for a change.

Daily Art Practice – Day 74

Hello and happy Saturday! I am late posting these, because it´ s been a few rougher days in the family. So this is Wednesday, but only had time and energy to share this today.

For this I used leftover paper strips, book pages, some gesso and my STAMPlorations stencil with Distress Oxide. The paper doll is by Tim Holtz, the stamps again by Klartext and the pink splatters were done with Dina Wakley Gloss Spray.

And here are a few detail photos:

So our kids are down with Corona, I am probably the next to get it. We have all had 3 jabs, so hoping all goes by well and mildly, but still, might not be able to share so much the next days. Just going to share, at least, the ones I have finished earlier this week. My FIL is also not doing so well atm, due to other health issues, so everything has been kinda chaotic and a bit tough the past days.

Hope life is better at your end!
Take care,
Sanna

Daily Art Practice – Day 56

Hello and happy Saturday! Today´ s page is done and it was a fun one to make. Plenty of stencils and lots of colour :).

I used some of my stencil line stencils (by STAMPlorations) on the background with Distress Oxides, then added Gelatos and Neocolor 2 crayons. After that I stampted with Klartext stamps to the background and added some white gesso stenciled over it. On the very top are wripped strips of the almanac page.

Here are some detail photos:

I hope you enjoyed watching today´ s piece. See you again tomorrow with another daily art piece.
Take care, Sanna

Daily Art Practice – Day 31

Hello and happy Tuesday! It´ s been ONE MONTH with my daily art practice pieces for 2022. Thirtyone days on a row – well, not quite, but almost. I had an unplanned break in between and worked a bit ahead to keep up, but other than that, it´ s one page & video a day.

I felt like doing blue on this one, because the almanac page had lots of it on it. So I kept in the color scheme. Also some Distress Crayons in there again too and of course Klartext “Denglisch 2” stamp set, as always. And Brusho´ s this time with one of my STAMPlorations stencils on the background as well as Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Good to get some of the sprays into use also.

I hope you enjoy today´ s piece. Here are some close-up photos too:

Here is a bonus video – a quick flip-thru of the month January. I will try and make such a video at the end of every month throughout this project.

This was a fun one to make. And the stamp sentiment translates to: “Two can play at that game” / “Tit for tat”.

Have a great day!
