Hände frei

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s share is a quick mixed media card, created from leftover pieces and residue media bits.

I´ ve got all my faves on this piece: various media leftovers added in layers, fun stamped sentiment and vintage image. I am really into creating this type of cards lately. The vintage images combined with snarky sentiments just hit all bases at the moment :).

I hope your week has been good and you are slowly starting your weekend!!! I still have lots of work to do at our construction site which also is a reason why it has been very quiet here lately. But in a way I have been crafty and creative, just not here on my blog. This morning I just could not wait, but came to my studio for a quick few minutes of creative time and ended up with this card. And now off to other „creative work“ :).

Have a great weekend, lovelies!

Arschkarte

Hello and happy Wednesday! We all know how it feels to draw the short straw… This card is exactly about that. I did a junk art / ugly art style card with Gloss Sprays, stenciling, gel printing, embossing enamel and some Dina Wakley collage collective pieces, combined with Klartext stamps.

This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites! It suits so many everyday situations and has perfect sentiments for those „not so perfect“ days. A mixed media heavy background works so well with this stamp set, too. I really enjoyed creating this card!

And I even managed to add in some bits from my junk bags. I´ ve previously used the ribbon for gel printing and saved the inked pieces for later – they work so well on this card and nothing goes to waste!

Hope your Wednesday was great!? I had a really nice day chatting with a friend, who I haven´ t seen in ages! By the way, If you´ d like to see a card video tutorial for a change, do stop by on my blog on Sunday, when I´ ll be sharing a set of cards created for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

See you then,

Alt genug

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s share is a mixed media piece, created using various leftover pieces from my „junk bag“. I was thinking I could frame this piece and give it away as a present to someone :).

On the background I have a gelli printed tissue piece, then some stenciling with Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. After that I´ ve got some Distress Paint and some Nuvo Shimmer Powder added to the background. The circles are from a leftover Glossy Spray sprayed piece. I just fussy cut them and added some outlining with a Posca pen. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment (using Klartext stamps) and a vintage figure that I also fussy cut out of a poster.

Here you can see some of the shimmer powder on the left bottom corner, by the way. I will add this piece to my „ugly art“ mixed media piece collection. I really enjoy doing these artworks, because it allows me to just play and add stuff without giving it too much thought.

Wishing you a great Thursday evening – it´ s almost Friday, lovelies!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 30

Hello and happy Monday! I´ve reached DAY 30 of my #tuac5minchallenge journey today. I´ve created appr. 5 minutes every single day for the past 30 days and this is my last piece for now with a video.

I used a residue tissue paper I had done some gelli printing onto. Then a few leftover stamped images that I had colored in with Distress Crayons. And an old ribbon piece with a alcohol inked, die cut mirror cardstock piece. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment and some white Dina Wakley Gloss Spray.

It´s been a fun 30 days! But doing a video every single day is lots of work, so I might just keep dropping finished pieces by and do a video from time to time to accompany them. But really haven´t decided on that yet. I am just going to go with what feels the best that particular day. Might also be that I don´t do a daily 5 minutes, but rather a few a week. Let´s see.

So I´ll leave you today with a little guardian angel type of project piece. See you soon with another 5 min art piece of another type of challenge! xxx, Sanna

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 26

Hello and happy Thursday! Boy, it has been a week… and it has been so good to come home and just do 5 minutes of art every day for the #tuac5minchallenge. That has brought me down from ugly stress levels. Today´s piece is totally random, just lines and colour.

I took a gelli plate printing session residue piece and drew with white and black Posca pens on it. Then just some Dina Wakley gloss spray droplets on top, a strip of tissue paper here and there and some random alphas. I had to add the sentiment in the end, did a little overtime, but didn´t want to leave it out :).

I´ve decided to do 30 days of this for now and then see if I miss it and maybe do some more :).

See you tomorrow!
