Daily Art Practice – May 12th

Hello and happy Monday! Today´ s DAP-Journal share is here:

I used Distress Crayons on the background, then added a black and white photo with a “crown” made from Dresdner trim piece by Prima Marketing, some Klartext stamp images as well as some old ribbon from my stash.

Here is a lady saying: it´ s all going to be allright again. And I am happy to say that speech therapy is paying off and my voice is getting better and better. That is a huge relief, since I will need another surgery and losing my voice forever just was not an option on my list. The rist of a second surgery damaging my second vocal cord would have been a huge catastrophy for me – one does need a voice on daily basis – and to know that the damaged one is getting better means good news for next surgery.

Hoping you all are doing good!

Daily Art Practice – May 2nd

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am again stopping by to share another Daily Art Practice piece with you.

For this page I used magazine pages as well as old book pages to mimic the colours and patterns on the original almanac page (Artistic Almanac 2022). And the idea worked out quite nicely.

I used pearlescent golden watercolour on the top, Posca pens and white gesso towards the bottom and in the middle some Distress Crayons. And finished the page off with a Klartext stamp again.

Hope your week is getting along nicely! I have started speech therapy after the surgery and so far it is going well. I am also very happy to have a voice again and to be able to use it. It will take at least 6 months to recover, but I am on a good path.

Take care, everyone!

Daily Art Practice – April 26th

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice page from my journal. This one, again, is done using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I used a picture from a magazine and added the almanac page´ s flowers as a flower bouguet to it. Additionally I also used a Klartext stamp to add the moon cycle image and then that again inspired me to write down the words: “Many moons ago!!”. On the background I used Distress Crayons this time.

I found that very suitable for this image. I had a good time making this one!
See you again with more journal shares tomorrow.

Daily Art Practice – April 18th

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice page from my journal. This one, again, is done using the Artistic Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

For this page I simply continued the pattern of the Almanac page in a matter that I thought it would continue outside the piece. I used Posca´ s and Distress Crayons for creating the areas. Also some Klartext stamping is included – this time another “Denglish” sentiment. I love those!

I finished the page off with some Stabilo all pencil droplets. It´ s now been a week since my surgery. I cannot wait to get this journey behind me and start another one – this time without yearly surgery appointments!! It´ s been a rough few years. I need a break from all that now.

Here´ s to better times and endings!

Daily Art Practice – April 10th

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing another page from my Daily Art Practice journal. This time it´ s April 10th. This page is again done using the Artist Almanac page as starting point. This is what I came up with:

I cannot seem to create light, airy pages at the moment. They all turn very dark for some reason. Might have to do with some issues I am struggling with recently. But I am hoping there is a solution for that just around the corner and hopefully I will feel better afterwards. If you´ d care to put a good though in for me, I´ d greatly appreciate it <3.

On this page I used Stabilo Woody pens, Stabilo all black and Klartext stamps. Also I added random bits of leftover paper strips to the background first. The old paper tone was done with Distress Crayons. The stamped sentiment translates to: “it´ s all going to be good”. Let´ s hope so!

See you again in a few days!
