Wall art piece

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! I am currently recovering from a cruciate replacement surgery and as I am writing this, I am still in the hospital (hoping to be able to go home soon). Thus, the regular posting here on my blog has been interrupted, because of that reason.

Therefore I am today sharing another wall art piece with you, that I created as a class sample a while ago.

This piece has lots of mixed media bits on it and was inspired by nature. When taking walks and traveling, I often pick pebbles, rocks, twigs and moss to take home with me and these pieces often end in a mixed media art piece later.

So for this piece I used a rock and a stick from nature to build my guardian angel. I added stenciling with Nuvo Glitter paste and one of my own stencil designs at STAMPlorations.

There is also plenty of misting on the background in various earthy colours, some canvas, tissue paper wings and natural toned cord on this piece. I also added a rub-on picture behind the „angels“ head as a centerpiece.

I love creating canvases like these! This particular piece I later gifted a dear crafty friend, who lives in Thessaloniki :). I hope it brings joy to it´s new owner :).

That´s all for today. Now back to resting and recovering! That will be on my programm mainly for quite a few days now and then slowly getting into physiotherapeutical things and hopefully after 3 weeks, can toss the crutches too.

Hoping you all are healthy and keep that way, even though there is the situation of Covid-19. Let´s take care of ourselves and stay safe. Wishing you all a lovely day.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Lollypop die set possibilities – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, it´s my turn again over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. I´m sharing two cards created with the Lollypop die cut die set.

Sanna LippertAgain this card idea started from my previous project, the Lollypop cards. I had a negative piece of white die cut paper on my table, cut with the Lollypop die. I looked at it and I suddenly saw lemons! This is how these cards came together:

Sanna LippertStep 1: I used the Lollypop die cut leftover piece and placed a Fitted Circle die (the smallest one of them) on top of the paper and ran it thru the die cutting machine. As a result I had a set of „lemons“.
Sanna LippertStep 2: Spray yellow and green spray ink onto the pieces. This way you have lemons and limes.
Sanna LippertStep 3: Cut circles from Through the Lens – Wood paper with the smallest Fitted Circles die. Adhere these pieces together to create lemons and limes.
Sanna LippertStep 4: Finish the card by cutting a piece of Through the Lens – Wood paper as a card background. Align the lemon and lime pieces overlappingly on one side of the card. Use an old typewriter to type a sentiment. Outline with black pen and add black spray ink splatters for additional detail.

Sanna LippertStep 5: Now for the second card. The Lollypop die set is really very versatile. You can use the Lollypop to create balloons too! I used an old canvas paper leftover piece and cut balloons with the Lollypop die.
Sanna LippertStep 6: Use a Through the Lens – Metal patterned paper as a card background. Attach ivory hemp cord to the balloons and adhere the balloons with 3D foam squares onto the card. Use an old typewrite to create a suitable sentiment. Outline with a black and a white pen and add white ink splatters for additional interest. Here are the finished cards:

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI love using the dies in various ways and finding new way of using them in my card making projects. Imagine all the fun ways you can use a particular die set!!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Altered Christmas tree baubles – Ornament No.: 1

Hi there, I thought I´d be sharing 6 different kind of altered Christmas tree baubles along the twelve days. Let´s start with the super fast and easy one!

Sanna Lippert For starters I bought a set of decoupage Christmas tree baubles from an art supply store. First I covered the surfaces with white gesso.

Sanna Lippert Next I took some serviette varnish & glue (matte) and twisted hemp rope natural from the Canvas Corp rope selection. I like this one very much, because it is two toned! I covered the bauble with varnish & glue (a relatively thick layer is needed) and rolled the cord around the bauble starting from the very bottom of the bauble and rolled until all the way up. As an alternative you could also use a thick paper glue or gel medium etc. Then I let the ornament dry properly. The best way to dry it is to let it hang somewhere. And that´s it! That is how easy it was!!!

Sanna Lippert Here is a little detail shot of the first ornament. I will share close-ups and pretty detailed photos of all the ornaments in my final ornament post – hope you will come back to see the next five altered baubles I created 🙂 !!! Will be sharing one every second day. See you soon!
