Daily Art Practice – Day 66

Hello and happy Tuesday! Here is again my daily art practice piece for day 66 with the Artist Almanac 2022.

I again used the Necolor 2 crayons on the backgroud with a green and white Posca pen. To that I added “Aloe” Gloss Spray splatters and fussy cut some gel printed pieces & paper residues into “pizza slices” and created similar circles like on the almanac page. I finished the piece off with Klartext stamps again.

Here are some detail photos:

Orange is a colour that I rarely use. Not one of my favorite go-to colours. But combined with the other bits, I can live with it :).

Have a good day and take care,

Daily Art Practice – Day 50

Hello and happy Sunday! It´ s DAY 50 (!!) of my daily art practice project. Feels good to have reached that number!!

For today´ s piece I took a circle punch and punched lots of tiny holes into the almanac page, then wripped some areas apart and adhered them onto the Distress Paint treated background. The most time I then spent on adhering the single punched circles around the bigger piece. After that I added Stabilo all black, Poscas, some asemic writing and a few gelli printed turquoise bits, a Denglisch stamp sentiment and some gelatos.

Here are some detail photos:

See you again tomorrow with another art journal page done using the Artist Almanac 2022.
Take care,

Daily Art Practice – Day 18

Hello and happy Wednesday. Another day of my daily art practice is done and dusted. This time with Day 18 of the Artist Almanac 2022.

I used some Neocolor 2´ s, STAMPlorations stencils (from my line there), gelli printed tissue residues, Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and of course another “Denglisch” stamp sentiment.

The particular one translates to: *sorry in advance for the language* Get lost! / Kiss my a..! / go to he..! / damn you!.

This is all for today – do come back tomorrow for another page. See you then! xxx, Sanna

Trifecta Cardmaking – January 2022

Hello lovelies and welcome to another Trifecta Cardmaking share with STAMPlorations products. Today I share a set of cards, done in a bit different designs, but the starting point was always the same basic technique/end product.

This is the first card I made:

and here are some detail photos:

For the second card I again used the same idea: a gelli printed paper I had created with STAMPlorations stencils on old music notes. Here is the second card:

On the first card the bold background covers the whole card base, that way the end result looks totally different. Here the overall look is more clean and simple due to the white space and only a small gelli circle as a focal point. Here are some detail photos:

And now to the 3rd card:

On this one again as my starting point I used a gelli printed and stenciled paper. This time I took a leaf stamp and stamped with it onto the paper and then fussy cut the pieces. That way I have multi-colored and multi-patterned leaves on a plain background and it is still the same basic idea. On all cards I this way again have stencils, stamps and stickers used – but in a different way on each one. The clear stickers make great sentiments for the cards. And now to the steps. This time round I recorded a step-by-step video for you to watch so you can get a better idea. Hope you like it!

I hope you enjoyed this months Trifecta cards and ideas! If you want to know how to do the stenciled papers, there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube (or check out Birgit Koopsen´ s Instagram Account – there are plenty of ideas up there!). I also made a similar technique with foam stamps and paints, but you could use stencils instead. That video is HERE. Oh, and here are some detail photos of the last card:

See you again in March with another Trifecta tutorial. STAMPlorations is taking a break in February from regular posts.

Happy crafting,

Daily Art Practice – Day 5

Hello and happy Thursday! Here is my daily art practice post again for DAY 5 with the Artist Almanac 2022.

I did a big mess with Distress Paints, so most of the beginning of my video comes from that. The actual creating process would have resulted on a much shorter video. But these things happen, so I am not going to dwell on it.

On this piece I wanted to leave most of the almanac page as it is and just more some parts around / cut only small pieces out of it. I adde some sticker alphas and again a Klartext “Denglisch” stamp sentiment onto the page. A little feather and a shell button decorate the tag also.

This was a fun one to do, although the paint accident. See you again tomorrow with more mixed media fun! Can´ t wait to play more!!
