Hello and happy Sunday! It was a gorgeous sunshine day today and I am a fan of sunshine weather. So I spent most of my day outside doing some gardening. Today´s #tuac5minchallenge piece is maybe therefore somewhat related to that with the big leaves on the piece :).
I got this gorgeous paper from my son and his girlfriend as a gift from their plant orders. They do know me well to offer me such pieces, right? How could I say no to that paper? 😀
The flower is plain junk pieces. I first tried to cut a freehand flower with scissors, but it didn´t work out, so I just cut circles to mimic a flower. A flower button in the middle and some Nuvo Glitter in the center. I added the green dots of Dina´s Gloss Spray after finishing recording. I just felt the piece needed a little splatter in then end :).
Hope your weekend was lovely, see you tomorrow for DAY 30!!! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing another The Ugly Art Club 5 min challenge take. This is my DAY 8. For today´s take I didn´t concentrate on junk that much, but instead used leftover gelli print bits. Here is what my take looks like:
I love this type of bold colours. The residue gelli prints work so well with the old book page that got layers of pearlescent watercolour on it. And on top some Posca pen marks, some old book page words and on the left a cluster of a misted feather, a piece of perfume packaging, a misted butterfly and another old book word.
I cannot wait to go and see what other participants have made for today. I love seeing their takes. It is so interesting to see how differently everyone spends their 5 minutes a day! Have you been following the #tuac5minchallenge hashtag? No? Well, it might inspire you 🙂
Hello and happy Tuesday! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations challenges yet? No? Well, there is still enough time to join in with us!! For some extra inspiration, there is again a bunch of lovely work up over at the STAMPlorations blog to get inspired by.
Here is what I created for the reveal:
For this card I created a gelli printed background image with Dina Wakley heavy body paints using my stencil (available at STAMPlorations) called Art Flowers.
After creating the background paper, I cut it into size and took the residue piece to stamp and fussy cut the flower petals out of leaves from the STAMPlorations „Bloom Doodles“ stamp set and added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) to the card. Very simple and easy, but thru the background colours, the card is really cheerful and bold.
For this months reminder post I again played in my art journal. This time creating a face. I´ve been doing #the100dayproject2021 over at my Insta account drawing faces on tags and try to do some faces also in my art journal (bigger size!!) from time to time. Once you get used to a smaller size, it´s not the easiest to scale into bigger size, so that definitely need some practizing. And what better place to add some fun stenciling, than a page with a face?!
I had rolled some leftover paint from my brayer into the background (pink salmon/peach and light blue) and it looked so good against the kraft paper that I wanted to paint a face around the colours. I used Neocolor 2 crayons for coloring and painting the face and Stabilo all black for outlining. I also hid some older rub-ons here and there onto the page.
And for finishing touches I used one of my stencils (Flowers 2) to create details to the face. Now is again your turn! Hoping to see you play along this month and submit lovely stenciled artwork to the May challenge!!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the STAMPlorations May Stencil Challenge reveal. It´s again an new, fresh, month and that always means that new challenges go live on STAMPlorations! I hope I can inspire you to join in with us at the Stencil challenge this month with my happy card.
For the May challenge I played with my Gelli Arts gel plate and my stencils. I love doing these mixed media backgrounds using the stencils. It´s always so exciting to see what kind of results come of out gel printing play time. This is also a really fun way of playing with ones stencils, by the way :).
For this one I used the Peacock Feathers stencil from my stencil line at STAMPlorations in combination with a gelli plate and skin toned and orange toned acrylic paints. After creating the background I did a few smaller prints with a set of small square gel plates and Art Marks 3 stamp set by STAMPlorations. The then became the background for the stamped flower images. Which were stamped with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and black stamp ink.
After that I just fussy cut the images and created the flower cluster onto the card. For finishing touches I added a Clear Sticker (also by STAMPlorations) sentiment.
That´s it! Now is again your turn to get creative with stencils. Please remember to play by the rules!! They are always listed at the end of the challenge and are really simple to follow, so remember, if you want to be in for the prizes, play according to the rules :).
