Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! Like promised on Tuesday, I´ll be sharing another small project with you, inspired by the layout project I shared this Tuesday :). Here it is:
I created a slimline card with the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake summer 2020 collection and as I was making it, I wanted to make a card in similar style. So I just kept on gelli printing the circles onto this piece of white paper and went from there. As my background I have the paper #1 from the summer collection. It works great as a card base – I just used the bolder design on the outside and the blue sky is on the inside.
I really like how this card turned out. I pretty much used the same products as on my layout, only here I used a different paper and the paper flowers are an addition.
If you want to know how this card came together, see the layout video for the technique on my Tuesday´s post. Oh, how I enjoy this collection and the candy colours!!!
Wishing you all a lovely day & happy crafting, xxx, Sanna
Hello everybody and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again very excited to share my Studio Tekturek September project (and video) with you!! I really love how it turned out and totally adore the candy colours of the Strawberry Shake collection!!
This is the page I did! I had such a great time creating it. The colours might say summer, but I think they work so very well for many other themes and seasons too. Like everyday scrapbooking themes :)!
I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. It shows the whole process from start to finish. I hope you enjoy watching it :).
Basically almost everything on this layout is from the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection, except for some embellishments and the Distress Inks, stamps, as well as the white paper.
Hello everyone and happy Saturday!! I´ve lost count – some days I almost can´t figure out what day it is! It´s probably because every day is pretty much the same. So there is not even a difference between weekdays and weekends. Thus this art journal page 🙂
I used the funny birdie image on this page, because it just looked as confused as I am feeling some days :). The background is again done with Distress Crayons. Underneath I´ve adhered a tissue paper that was gelli printed. Then plenty of crayon layers on top. Cannot get enough of this technique!!!
And then just a fussy cut text to go with it all – that looks as confused and disorderly like the birdie… Just putting thoughts and feelings down on paper this time. I´ve basically done a page a day the last week or so. That is approximately the time I can sit at the moment. Then it´s just pain and ache. So going with what my body allows. One small journal page a time.
Hope you are all doing ok at your end!!? xxx, Sanna
Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I´m again stopping by to share another art journal page with you guys. This one is a different kind of one. Are you ready?
So this is a face that was left over from a magazine transfer playtime with my gel plate. The face was covered with paint and looked so good that I didn´t want to throw it away. So I saved it and adhered it into my journal.
Then, inspired by something Dina Wakley did on one of her FB lives, I „painted“ the face anew. She had used scribble sticks on her live (if I remember correctly), but due to the color on the page, I chose to use Posca Pens. So I basically repainted the face using various tones of Posca markers and it was just sooo much fun. Besides, it´s a great way to learn how to color, where to add shadows and light. I am not saying this one is perfect, because it´s not. But I learned alot by doing this. And it was so much fun. And I think she looks really cool this way.
For finishing touches I just doodled the word „raw“ onto a gel plate paper piece and fussy cut that. Voilá!
That´s all for today. Hope you are all doing well?! xxx, Sanna
Hello lovelies and happy Tuesday! I´m excited to share another art journal page with you today. This one turned out so to my liking!!
I originally had something going on on the page already, but didn´t like it at all. That happens. So, I took a piece of tissue paper that I had done with a gel plate, adhered that on top and started anew. After the gel plate tissue, I grabbed some bookpaper bits. Adhered those and then applied first gold acrylic paint here and there. Then I grabbed my beloved Distress Crayons and applied the gorgeous colours (also the white! crayon – love it here!!). Next I placed my Dots ´n Beans stencil and placed it on some areas to wipe of a bit of the crayon.
You can hardly see that, but look for the the blue and pink areas, you might recognize the stencil pattern there. I already had a quote in mind I wanted to use, but hadn´t figured out how I wanted to use it. Then it hit me – writing on a book page and fussy cutting each and every letter extra, then adhering in rows. I LOVE how that turned out! So going to do this more often :), definitely!
That´s it, lovelies. It´s a simple page, but I love how it turned out. Happy times! xxx, Sanna
