#the100dayproject – Days 11-15

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m again stopping by to share my next faces drawn on tags for my personal #100daysoffaces 2021 challenge. If you want to see them go live every day, then you should follow my Instagram account for the daily posts. I´ll share them here on my blog in groups with links to the videos.

Day 11

This tag is die cut from white carstock with a STAMPlorations tag die and I´ve added a hue of indian ink as a stripe on it. After that I just drew the face with Posca´s very quickly and added some shading.

Day 12

For this tag I´ve again used white cardstock, then die cut it with a STAMPlorations tag die (see product list at the end of this post) and applied green and yellow spray ink onto it. The faces are again drawn and coloured with Posca pens.

Day 13

This tag is die cut from a woodgrain paper and then covered partly with white gesso. On top of that I´ve sketched a face with a pencil and added shadows with a black Posca.

Day 14

For this tag I´ve firs played with my gel plate from Gelli Arts with acrylic paints and my stencils. Next I´ve drawn a face with Neocolor 2 pens. The splatters were added with a water tank brush in the end.

Day 15

This is a grey cardstock paper, die cut with a STAMPlorations tag die. Then painted partly with black paint and after that drawn and coloured using Neocolor 2´s again.

As always, go and see the short videos for each tag on my YouTube channel. You´ll find the link to a particular tag always immediately under the photo. Hope you enjoy them!

Have a great day!

Keep taking chances Art Journal page

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Today I´m stopping by to share another art journal page with you. I´ve used some of my stencil designs on this one. I wonder if you can guess which ones?

I´m again working in my Ranger Inc. art journal that has various types of pages in it. I love these kraft pages! It´s so much fun creating on them. For this page I´ve used Dina Wakley Media paints, washi, scribble sticks and her stamps. Oh, and fussy cut bits from her Collage Collective book.

Now can you see what stencils I used? It´s the Amaranth and the Art Flowers 2 stencil, both used for „negative print making“ with acrylic paints. I´ve only used parts and I love the images they create! Definitely going to do this more often!! Other than that, it Scribble Sticks, Dina´s paints added in various ways and some older neon spray inks.

January feels like it´s going to be mainly art journaling and mixed media related :). BUT if you come here tomorrow, you might be in for a scrapbook layout :).

Just a little heads up, if you are interested in my stencil designs at STAMPlorations – here is a discount code for you at their store:

Hope your weekend was nice! Wishing you a good start into the new week!

One Little Word 2021

Hello and happy Saturday!!! I have been thinking about my word for 2021 for a while now and it was not as an easy choice as last year! I´ve been thinking about the perfect word to carry me through 2021, but I just couldn´t put my finger on one single word and say: „that´s it!“. So I´ve chosen three words for 2021 to guide me through the year.

Here is a page desplaying my chosen words:

So the words I chose are: dedication, growth and strength. I plan to carry these words in my mind and heart throughout the year and hope to reach the goals I´ve set myself.

This word should guide me in all areas of life through this year. Whatever I decide to do, I´ll do it with commitment. Whether it´s sports, work, crafting, family life, me or anything else.

Growth on the other hand is growth as a person, on a mental level and development in all areas. Again whether it´s work, sports, my art or me in general.

And last but not least, my third word: strength. This brings all the previous words together and connects them to a stronger bond. Here, I also want to develop my strengths – whether it´s sports, arts, work or any other areas of my life. I will need strength to carry on and to remind me that I want to be dedicated and grow and develop.

For creating this page I used plenty of various media. Stencils are from my stencil line at STAMPlorations, Dina Wakley paints were added and Dylusions sprays were used. The stamps are also by STAMPlorations and I´ve also added some tissue here and there, gifted to me by a lovely ATC swapping partner from all the way in Australia. I´ve also got some Tonic Studios Crackle Paste on the page as well as Posca pens. And some date stamping to record the date.

I also felt the urge to use bold, strong colours again for a change. It´s been a while I´ve used them and at the moment I just cannot get enough of them.

Last year my word was self-care and little did I know how well it fit the year 2020, when I chose it. It honestly scared me a little how well the word matched the year, so that is also why I´m putting extra thought to this years word(s). As I am asking the universe for these things, I might as well do it with my whole heart. Fully committed. I am a little fearfull (which should be a good thing, right?) of putting the words out there and hope that at the end of the year I´ll be happy I chose these words.

I hope you enjoy my art journal page share today! Wishing you all a lovely start into 2021! Have a great weekend!!

Celebrate!

Hello lovelies! Happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m sharing another stenciled card, using my new stencils at STAMPlorations. This stencil, actually, is not a new one, but it went thru a modification process, thus, „new“.

We changed the design into a slightly bigger one, because cutting it was a difficult process. A bigger design makes the cutting easier, so we changed it abit. A second designs that got changed, was Onions in Raws. Totally out of same reasons. So if you bought these two stencils by their reveal, the new ones are slightly different (bigger). The smaller designs will not be available anymore in the store.

For the background I used residue pieces where I pressed a misted stencil onto a white paper and got this colorful image. Then I added the RagRug pattern with black Distress Ink on top. For decor a stamped and fussy cut sentiment and a few older embellishments.

A perfect color combination for fall birthday wishes!
Happy crafting,

October Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyne! It´s again time to remind you about this months Stencil Challenge at STAMPlorations!! There is still plenty of time to play along – hope you join the fun with us!!!

This is my reminder post project:

For this card I used Monika Skinners new Flexi Templates (Ovals here) with the new Slimline stencils designed by Shery. I first placed the ovals into the middle and inked around the edges with pink ink, then I placed the slimline stencil over everything else and added darker pink ink tone onto the pink areas thru the stencil.

After that I removed the oval template in the middle and placed the „edge“ piece of the oval template over the pink areas. This way I could ad orange to the middle without messing the colours. For finishing touches I misted the Slimline stencil with water and pressed it onto the orange inked oval and let water do it´s magic. You can see the pattern here and there on the background.

For finishing touches I added some stamping with the STAMPlorations Noteworthy stamp set and then went on adding some Nuvo Drops and paper flowers and buttons from my older stash.

Now again be sure to check out the fabulous project the other DT girls designed for your inspiration and then join the fun :). Hope you see you at STAMPlorations blog!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
