Daily Art Journal – April 3rd

Hello and happy Monday! Today I am sharing yet another Daily Art Journal page, created with the Artist Almanac 2022 as a starting point.

I added green and red Distress Paint to the background to mimic the Almanac page and then did some asemic writing, some random stamping with black stamp ink and Klartext stamps to create a similar feel to the background like on the almanac page.

After adhering the almanac piece on top I added more stamping, some crayon marks and white and black Stabilo all circles here and there. These are not my go-to colours when creating, at least not in combination like this, but I really enjoyed creating the same feel to the background.

See you again on Wednesday with another page!
Take care,

Daily Art Practice – April 2nd

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am again sharing another daily art practice page from my Artisti Almanac inspired art journal. This time a crazy collage type of page:

I am so much enjoying this again, I truly needed the break from creating in this journal. I find that my pages are much more free and crazy, I am not giving much thought to creating “beautiful” pages. I just go with the flow! And that feels good. From this process I am hoping to find some new techniques in the end and maybe new ideas and development.

I was gifted some magazines from a work colleague and after reading them I though it is a shame to just toss them. So I am adding lots of magazine bits to the pages recently (I bet you have noticed that). Here again on the background lovely Distress Paints, Distress Crayons and the almanac page from 2nd of April cut into small pieces and scattered around the page. The stamping is again Klartext. You might think, oh that is ugly! Yes, might be, but SO MUCH FUN!

See you next week with more pages to share!

Daily Art Practice – April 1st

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am sharing another daily art practice piece from my art journal, created with the Artist Almanac 2022 page as a starting/inpiration point.

For this page, I used crayons on the background, then added some asemic writing with a pencil, on top of that some yellow, turquoise, pink and green crayons, then fussy cut leaves from the 1st of April almanac page and finally added some Klartext stamp stamping on top.

A very chaotic background and then some really pretty and cheerful leaves on top of the chaos. The stamped sentiment which translates to: “maybe everything is going to get much easier”, just fits perfectly here.

That´ s all for today. Do come back on Saturday when I will share another page from the journal. Until then,

Take care,

Daily Art Practice – March 31st (w/ video)

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing another page from my daily art practice journal, created with the Artistic Almanac 2022 as my starting point. This is what I made:

For this one I used leftover paper bits and then added variouos shades of Distress Crayons on top. I then added some details to the face (like hair) of the almanac page and for finishing touches added some Klartext stamp stamped sentiments.

These posts are now so much easier to fit into a busy day, when I don´ t make a video to each and every one. BUT today I´ ll share a flip-thru of the March pages as a compensation. No start-to-finish-videos daily anymore, but rather a flip-thru end of month. Much less stress and much less time consuming. I then have more time to do what I really want to do – play in the journal :).

See you again very soon with April pages!! Until then, take care and enjoy some sunshine and outside time!!

Daily Art Practice – Day 59

Hello and happy Tuesday! I have another daily art practice “page” done and dusted. This time it is another tag to be added to the journal later.

I took a kraft tag and added the fussy cut part of the almanac page to it after applying Distress Crayons, Posca marker and Sharpie onto the background. After that I just added another Klartext stamp to the tag.

Here is the video:

The stamp sentiment translates to something like: “Time heals nothing, it only makes sure that your memories start to fade.” And here is the MONTHLY FLIP-THRU VIDEO:

Thanks for looking! Have a good week!
