December Stencil Challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to the December STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge reminder post. What´s it all about? It´s just a reminder that there is still enough time for you to play along with us and also an inspirational boost, in case you were looking for one.

For this reminder post, I´ve again created an art journal page. I know I´m repeating myself, but I just enjoy creating in my journal recently. Here is my inspiration project:

I so so enjoyed making this one! I´ve got all the fun stuff going on this page: stenciling with paste, acrylic markers, gelli printed tissue paper, stamping!

I´ve first added the Evolution stencil pattern onto the page with texture paste. Then I´ve painted the whole page with Distress Paint. Next I´ve added some liquid watercolour splodges (really just hues!) onto the background. After that I took a gel press printed tissue paper, stamped the figures onto it and then fussy cut and adhered them with Gel Medium onto the page. For finishing touches I fussy cut some crowns, added stamped stentiments with black ink and scribbled here and there. AND for finishing touches I wanted to highlight the stencil pattern, so I painted and outlined it with white and green Posca pens.

I had a really great time creating this page – now it´s again your turn. By now you know that you need to play by the rules to be eligble for the prize and that you can create anything, just as long as you use a stencil for it.

Hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the other DT girls created and then play along yourself! Hope to see you there!

Happy stenciling,

November Stencil Challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to the STAMPlorations November Stencil challenge reminder post. So what is this post actually all about? It´s a simple reminder – with additional inspirational projects from the DT girls – to let you know that there is still time to play along with our November Stencil Challenge!!

And now for the inspiration – here is my project:

I created a face again! The background has some misting on it which worked as my starting point. Next I drew the face with a black Posca pen and started applying various Distress Ink tones thru 3 different stencils onto the background and across the face and the body.

After I was finished with the stenciling, I colored the hair, eyes and lips with markers. Next I added some stamping with black ink and for finishing touches I used leftover gelli printed tissue paper pieces as earrings and as highlights around the shoulders.

I had a great time creating this page – I hope I could inspire you to grab your stencils and create something fun for our challenge. There are always prizes to be won as long as you keep to the rules (see the STAMP blog for more). So grab those stencils of yours and give them a play!!

Happy stenciling,

Art journal page – STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge reminder

Hi there! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations October Stencil Challenge yet? If not, there is still enough time to join the challenge!! As a reminder and additional inspiration, the design team girls are sharing more projects on the STAMPlorations blog today.

Here is my take for today:

A page in my art journal, called „B the magic“. I´ve used the Evolution stencil with texture paste to create this page. For additional texture I added some gelli plate treated paper (green circles here and there).

The faces are stamped on tissue paper and colored with spray inks. There is plenty of Distress Paint added to the background, but this time I kept to very light and soft colours.

I´ve added black stamped sentiments here and there and highlighted parts of the page with Posca pens. They are my go-to pens when art journaling. I had such a great time creating this page!! Now´s your turn to play and when you do, be sure to join the STAMPlorations October Stencil Challenge (HERE). There are great prizes to be won, so don´t miss it!!!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna


Go see do Art Journal Page

Hi there and happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m again dropping by my blog to share another art journal page with you all. This time the theme is about travelling. I have a huge bucket list to work thru and I love to go to new places which I sadly cannot do this year due to my surgery, but soon, soon hopefully travel plans can be added to my calendar :).

Thus the travel themed page today:

I´ve added lots of bits and bobs to this page. There is some paint on the background, then I added some gelli plate transfer tissue pieces (see the lady´s face in the middle?). That piece is one of those.

I fussy cut and added a world map in pieces onto the page, then did some stamping, journaling and adhered random fussy cut pieces here and there.

I had a great time creating this page and dreaming about future travels :). Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna


Mixed media tags

Hello there! I am slowly, but surely, developing a serious addiction towards tag creating :-)… I think they are fabulous projects to make! You can add them later to be a part of another project or put them on a present AND they are smallish thus relatively fast to create. So if inspiration hits and you are just not up to creating a scrapbook layout or working on a canvas, tags are a nice size to go to. These two I created just for fun to participate on a FB online crop.

I´ve used plain white tags as background and first applied droplets and layers of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist onto the tag. I let those dry properly before moving to the next step. Next I added Distress Paint circles onto the first tag by pressing the dabber directly into the tag. After that I took a Dina Wakley stamp and stamped the „text“ onto the background, then added some details with Posca paint pens. Finally I added bits of cardstock residues from my previous projects and stapled them down. Then I only needed to add a little stamping and the ribbon.

These were so much fun to make! I really like the colors on these tags too :). What have you been creating lately? I know I should be thinking about Xmas cards, but I am still not quite in the spirit for that :)…

Happy crafting,
