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 20

Hello and happy Wednesday! 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 just continued the pattern of the almanac page and added some Klartext stamp stamping on top. I just love this almanac page and tried to continue the same feeling “on my side of the page”.

I used iridescent watercolour paints with acrylic paints, gesso and Neocolor II crayons here. Also, here on the very top you can see the stamping of the day 19 peeking. I missed that part in my previous posts´ photos ;-).

So I have been telling you bits about my surgery, but there are parts that did not go to plan and I haven´ t talked about yet. Becuase I have been a) recovering from the fact that it´ s not all as it is supposed to be and b) processing the news for myself the past week.

After surgery situation is that my left vocal cord got injured. If the injury is permanent, one cannot tell yet. It will either stay as is or recover in time (this might take 4-6 weeks). So you can imagine how I´ ve been worried and scared the past days. I know there are more horrible things to happen to someone, but I use my voice every day and when it´ s not working, it is scary. I truly hope it will get better during the next weeks.

I know we all carry something with us that the others know nothing of, so therefore, I send you all my very best wishes, strength with whatever you are struggling with and a virtual hug! Take care!

Have a great day!!

Daily Art Practice – April 19th

Hello and happy Monday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice journal page with you. This is how April 19 turned out:

I again used the Artistic Almanac 2022 as my starting point and really fell in love with this almanac page because of the colours! So I continued the color theme on the rest of the page too.

I basically have leftover paper bits and an old japanese postcard piece glued down to the page. To that I applied some white gesso and then added some Tina Walker washi tape on top. What you cannot see on this page, is the stamped sentiment, due to myself taking bad photos ;-). BUT, on the bottom (you can hardly see the beginning of it here..) there is a sentiment saying in German something like this: “and the world wonders”. That stamp sentimetn is by Klartext, of course.

I hope you enjoyed today´ s share, even though the photo is not complete.
See you soon again with more shares!

Daily Art Practice – April 14ht

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Journal page, created with the Artistic Almanac 2022. Happy yellow tones here!

I first drew flowers onto the almanac page and then fussy cut them. After that I took a leftover piece of paper and drew some leaves and fussy cut those too. The background is done with Distress Crayons and some leftover paper strips and the page is finished with a Klartext “Denglish” stamp sentiment.

Today´ s page is a reminder to enjoy one´ s life! It all goes so fast, so many things can happen and you really never know when your time is up. So better try and cherish and enjoy every minute we have on this earth!!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Daily Art Practice – April 13th

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again stopping by to share another Daily Art Practice Jounal page with you. These have always the Artist Almanac pages as their starting point. This is what I ended up making:

For this page I simply continued the background feeling and added stamping and fussy cut elements to it. Also some Posca pink pen marks are here and there on the background.

To add the stencil pattern to the page I used STAMPlorations stencils from my stencil line there with Distress Paints. And to finish the page off I used Klartext stamps again.

I hope your week is a nice one!
