Daily Art Practice – April 25th

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice page from my journal. This one, again, is done using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I simply used pearlescent watercolours on a partly gessoed page and then added marks with a white Signo uni-ball pen on top after the watercolour had dried.

I find the artistic almanac very inspiring, because thru every single page one is challenged to try out something one has possibly not tried to do before. Now, some may say I am just copying the particular day´ s page and not doing anything unique with it. TRUE also, BUT I am also testing out ideas and techniques other creatives have to see how if feels like and maybe thru this process will learn something new and also might develop my own personal way of creating. This is why I enjoy this almanac so much. It´ s about the personal creative developent and challenge for me.

Have a great week, lovelies!

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,
xxx, Sanna


Daily Art Practice – April 23rd

Hello and happy Sunday! 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.

On this one it is pretty obvious what I did :). Just created a mirror image of the almanac page. Well, at least I tried to create one :).

I used Neocolor II crayons, a Stabilo all black pen and Klartext stamps on this page (one of the stamps is an older one and not anymore available at the store).

As there is not much more to say to this page, I´ ll keep it super short today!
See you again next week with more project shares! Have a great Sunday!!

Daily Art Practice – April 22nd

Hello and happy Saturday! 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 used pearlescent watercolours to paint the tree and the background pattern and then added some pencils marks here and there as well as a fussy cut sentiment from a leftover project piece.

I hope you are still enjoying these pieces I share.. I promise there will be also other project shares up very soon and not only these :). Some of you have been asking, by the way, if there will be an Artistic Almanac 2023: there will be one! So if you are looking for one, try following one of the artists contributing (for example: Tina Walker and Birgit Koopsen).

See you soon,

Mir Dir – Dani Peuss

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am stopping by to share another layout with you. This one is created with the Dani Peuss September 2022 Main Kit and September Klartext stamp (plus a few other stamps from Klartext).

The title of this layout translates to: “with you”. I wanted to scrap a few recent everyday photos, because life also happens in the ordinary, not just on vacation. And I found these photos very scrap worthy :).

I used following Klartext stamps on this layout: 2209 – Die Welt entdecken, 5026 – collage|fotografie, 5034 – Mia. When stamping, I used different stamp ink tones to stamp onto the background (Hero Arts Wet Cement & Soft Granite, Versafine Nocturne and Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber).

On the backgound I have used a Dani Peuss paper with Simple Stories Let´ s Go! Collection papers on top. The embellishments are from the same Simple Stories series, but the stickers I added to the very bottom are from my Sticker Surprise Pack from Dani Peuss (see video about that here) and Teresa Collins Favorites Sticker Set.

In addition I also added some yellow splatters (Dina Wakley Gloss Spray – lemon) to the page. Something I love to do :). And I like yellow, so there´ s that :).

The layout itself is about my life with hubs. The second photo is posed, by the way. He really did not suffer that much when going shopping with me. He actually did that voluntarily :). He just needs a little preparing time to adjust to the thought and when he gets that, everything works out fine :). And to the first photo; he actually said that moment: “Show me how to bake a cake, so I can make one for you some day”. Thus, very scrap worthy photos and events :).

I hope you enjoyed today´ s layout share and if you got inspired, hop over to the Dani Peuss store for lovely kits and stamps.

See you soon, have a great weekend!
