Daily Art Practice – Day 79

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am sharing day 79 with you without further ado. You all know this by now if you have been following the daily journey :).

And for this piece I again added a paper strip into the journal to then add the full almanac page as it is. I loved it so much, I just could not cut it into parts! So I did the easy way and just added some more clouds, a strip of border paper and a stamped sentiment (by Klartext). The watercolours I had were pearlescent, so the sky is brighter, therefore the border in between.

And the Distress Oxide was used with the Newspaper 2 Klartext stamp. The birds were drawn by me and the sentiment was stamped with Die Story Klartext stamp.

Here is a quick share of the stamp I am using on my last pages. It is so cool for mixed media details in my journal.

I hope you still enjoyed today´ s share, even though very simple. But I wanted to save the piece as a highlight in the journal as it is. Just love it! Okay, see you again tomorrow with another daily piece.

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 65

Hello and happy Monday! Here is day 65 of the daily art practice with the Artist Almanac 2022.

For today´ s take I just simply added leftover bits to the almanac page and Dina´ s Gloss Sprays to the background. Also again a Klartext stamp to finish the page. I again worked on an extra piece to add to the journal later.

Here are some detail photos:

Thanks for stopping by today. See you tomorrow again.
Take care!!!
