Flügelschlag Art Journal Page

Hello and happy Thursday!! I´m enjoying a free day today and what better way to do that than to get my fingers dirty with adhesive and paints. Thus, today I´m sharing yet another art journal page with you all.

Here is what I created:

This is a newspaper collage page. Just something fun I enjoyed creating. Basically it is supposed to capture all those summer feelings – ice cream, sunshine, relaxing, shades, the sea, flowers. Just everything I enjoy about summer. This year we weren´t able to travel to the sea due to my knee surgery and I must admit that I miss it quite alot. See, I love dipping my toes into the sea, feeling the sun on my skin.. I am totally a summer person. Therefore this page!

I´ve sneaked in some stenciling onto the background, but it is mostly covered with newspaper clippings.

Wishing you a great Thursday and a fabulous weekend!! Let´s hope there will be some sunshine in for us 🙂 …

Happy crafting,

More Ideas Than Time – Art Journal Page

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!!! Can´t beliebe it´s July already. We have been enjoying VERY warm weather here in Austria the past few weeks and its not the best of weather for a knee in recovery..so lot´s of quite sleepless nights behind me. Therefore I have been trying to cope with the pains by art journaling… Hoping also this phase will pass.

So here is the latest creation:

I did  some collaging on this one and cut pieces from newspapers and jewellery advertisements for example, to use on this page. There is also some stenciling (by stencil line by STAMPlorations) on the page.

And I also added some stamping (the eye).  Highlights were added with watercolours and Posca pens.

On the background you can see some very light stenciling as I wiped thru the stencil with some Nuvo Mousse. I also matted the page with bright yellow acrylic paint before doing everything else.

I had so much fun with this page!!! Definitely going to do this type of pages more in the future. I think I am hooked ;-)…

Happy crafting,

Don´t forget to fly – June MMCC, Vol. 4

Hello there! Today I will share my last take on the June COLLAGE challenge over at the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog. There is still a little time to play along with us, so I hope you grab your tools and dig into your stash and get creative :).

This months challenge is a really fun one. It is about creating a collage of some kind and as an additional element you can use a frame. I´ve again created my kind of collage and first glued all kinds of paper/tape/ribbon pieces onto a piece of cardstock, then used a Tim Holtz butterfly die cut die to cut some butterflies out of that particular paper and then created a frame (again with a die cut die and my Big Shot). I´ve colored the frame with yellow and green spray ink and then stamped some circles with Finnabair stamps onto the background.

Next I outlined the frame with a black pen, then glued the frame with the butterflies onto the card base, added a stamped sentiment in the middle and finally some enamel dots.

It is a quite fast card to create, although there are so many bits and pieces in there. And the fun part is that you can use all kinds of residue paper pieces and old product to create the collage butteflies. I bet flowers would look cool this way too. Will need to try that out some time later. I´ve really enjoyed this moths challenge alot, hope you do too and join in with us! We love seeing your creations!!

See you at MMCC,

(heart) you & don´t forget to fly – June MMCC, Vol. 3

Hello there, lovelies!!! Time for some more Mixed Media Card Challenge inspiration for the June challenge :).

Here are my two cards:

I have again glued bits and pieces of paper/ribbon and/or washi tape onto a piece of paper, then cut those into a „frame“ form with a die cut die. Next I added some additional layers using a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil with a silvery paste.

Both cards have the same frame form as a base. To the green-yellow toned card I also added some flowers from my stash, some additional enamel dots, a stamped and fussy cut butterfly as well as a stamped sentiment.

For the second card instead of adding flowers I just added a few stickers and enamel dots for decoration and then outlined both the frame and the card with a black pen.

I hope you will find time to play along with this months fun „COLLAGE“ challenge!!! As an optional element use a frame and when finished, go here and add your link! Hope to see you at MMCC,

xxxx, Sanna

Freedom – MMCC June challenge, Vol. 2

Hello there and happy Monday!! Time to share some more Mixed Media Card Challenge blog inspiration again. For this months challenge you need to create a COLLAGE and as an optional element you can add a FRAME. Just click the above picture to get to the challenge page for more information.

This is the second card I created:

I again used bits and pieces of paper, washi tape, ribbon and border stickers, added layers of ink/stamping and/or stenciled paste over the areas and then used my Big Shot to die cut some butterflies from those paper pieces. Finally I added some enamel dots for additional decoration and my card was done.

Then I went along and painted a watercolor background with a Tattered Angels (patina) Glimmer Mist onto the card base, added some rubber stamp images (stamps by Finnabair) and sentiments. After that I just glued the butterflies down onto the card base and cut the residues off.

I will be sharing some more cards I created for this challenge later on this month and I hope you will come back to take a look ;-).

Have fun creating,
xxx, Sanna
