#the100dayproject – Days 76-80

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I drew a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag. You can also see all the posts on my Instagram account (here), since I am now done with the drawing challenge. And you can also watch all the videos directly on my YouTube channel too (here).

For these faces I mainly used Neocolor 2´s again. At this point, the more I drew, the more comfortable I felt and the more ideas I had. I was braver and experimented more. I also was more relaxed about the drawing process itself. I had somehow found my „nook“ how I wanted to draw or which media felt good to draw with, so if made the whole process a bit easier.

I can´t quite believe how much one can learn in 80 days, imagine in 100 days. Just a little time every day took me already so far. Imagine I´d do this the whole year?

Oh, here I again did another half-face drawing, because I loved the first one so much. And I also did a face using only 3 colours (brown, black and white) and quite enjoyed it too. I really enjoyed the drawing process very much every day. I was already looking forward to it during daytime at IRL work. It felt very soothing, but also exciting and inspiring to take a tag and draw a face never knowing, how they would turn out in the end.

Happy drawing,

My take on face drawing is an artsy, abstract one. I am not trying to learn how to draw realistic faces, because at the moment a) it is not my interest and b) I don´t think I am very good at that type of drawings. But this type of mixed media face drawing just interests me very much and I also enjoy it a lot!

This was a fun set to draw! I really felt so much more confident drawing these 5 faces and adding details, shadows and shading. I also noticed that I like to do shading in „strange“ colours. It doesn´t have to be realistic at all! And I really am addicted to drawing with Neocolor 2´s, too. Also, I hadn´t drawn any faces with glasses so far, so I really enjoyed adding them to a few here.

So be sure to come back to take a look of the next 5 :). I wish you all a wonderful new week!!!

Happy crafting,

June Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy Tuesday! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations challenges yet? No? Well, there is still enough time to join in with us!! For some extra inspiration, there is again a bunch of lovely work up over at the STAMPlorations blog to get inspired by.

Here is what I created for the reveal:

For this card I created a gelli printed background image with Dina Wakley heavy body paints using my stencil (available at STAMPlorations) called Art Flowers.

After creating the background paper, I cut it into size and took the residue piece to stamp and fussy cut the flower petals out of leaves from the STAMPlorations „Bloom Doodles“ stamp set and added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) to the card. Very simple and easy, but thru the background colours, the card is really cheerful and bold.

Now hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see more inspiration and then join in with us on the stencil fun! Please do remember to check out the rules on the main post, so you are qualified for winning prizes.

I hope you get inspired by this card and play a little yourself!
Happy stenciling, Sanna

June Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and happy June!!! It´s been raining and chilly almost throughout the month of May here, so I am truly hoping for a bit more sunshine and nicer weather for June *fingerscrossed*. But regardless of the weather, it´s again time to share the June STAMPlorations stencil challenge with you. Here is my take:

For the challenge reveal I created a stenciled and gelli plated card background which I then pimped up with Dina Wakley Gloss Spray misted stencil pattern on top.

So lot´s of colours and lots of layers. But still flat and easy to be put in an envelope and mailed.

This time of the year, when the garden starts to bloom, is my favorite time. So for June I deliberately chose these colours and flowers. There are also some rainbows hidden in the background to create texture.

I´ve totally neglected my gelli plate for a long time, so it was time to start using it again. I really do like the mixed media backgrounds you can create with a gelli plate. The make great card backgrounds too!

Now hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the design team girls created for the reveal. And then, grab your stencils and play along with!! Just remember, that if you would like to be in for the prizes, you need to follow the rules :). They are really simple and always listed at the end of the challenge post at STAMPlorations blog.

Happy stenciling,

Mixed media card

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more mixed media card with you. I again did the background using Gelli Arts gelli plate with my stencil designs.

I first did the pattern with the gel plate and a stencil design of mine using red acrylic paint on white paper. For the next step I took orange toned Distress Ink and inked the white areas with it. It´s a nicer contrast for the eye and the strong red/white tones.

For the flower and petals I used a STAMPlorations stamp set on a residue piece of that gelli printed paper and stamped the images with black ink. For finishing touches I added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) and a red button into the middle of the flower. The card is still flat enough to fit into an envelope :).

Wishing you a great day!
