Daily Art Practice – May 26th

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s DAP-Journal share is here:

For this piece I used leftover newspaper bits, some old book page residues and added a magazine image (the lady) that I fussy cut on top. In between the layers I used washi tapes and gesso and on top of everything I added a Klartext stamp sentiment.

The sentiment translates to: “Alice first had to fall, before she was able to reach wonderland”. Keeping that in mind on my recovery journey every day. We all fall sometimes, we struggle and fall, but we always get up in the end and fight some more, right? Because, what else is there to do than to continue with what you have and try again, maybe next time wiser and a bit harder and more determined.

Let´ s keep that in mind and remembert to cherish all the good things that happen in between. Hope your weekend will be full of wonderful and good things!
Lots of love,
xxx, Sanna


Daily Art Practice – May 24-25th

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am again sharing two pages form my DAP-Journal:

This piece is as big as the almanac page (in fact it is the original almanac page) and I only added some stamping and a bit of ribbon to it. Why? Because my journal is getting VERY thick and I trying to fit as many days into it as possible. I probably will need to split it into at least 3 sections in the end, but hey, a girl can try, right?

This sentiment translates to: Hey fighting spirit, I am incredibly proud of you.

For May 25th I continued the faces outside the almanac page and boy did I enjoy drawing these wonky faces. I haven´ t been doing faces in a while. It´ s something I want to do more of again, so this was a good reminder. I used a black Posca pen for drawing and then added colour with Neocolor 2´ s. For the sentiment I again used a Klartext stamp that says: “you are wonderful”.

I hope these pages lifted your spirits!
Have a great day,

Daily Art Practice – May 23rd

Hello and happy Wednesday! Here comes another page from my DAP-Journal:

For this page I used a piece of newspaper and bits from a art supply stores catalogue, then added some Neocolor in yellow and white gesso as well as Stabilo all black droplets here and there. On top of it all is a Klartext stamp again. This one translates to: “Patience? As if I had time for that!”

Ironically, the original page speaks of tranquil mind and my side is somewhat the opposite :).

See you tomorrow again,

Daily Art Practice – May 14th

Hello and happy Thursday! I am back with another DAP-Journal page share today:

For this one I used some images from an art supply product catalogue, combined with old book pages and postal stamps, as well as a Klartext stamp, of course. I also hid some star tissue paper (I think I got that from Lizzy) onto the page and used the almanac page solely as a background this time.

The stamp sentiment translates to: state of things.. I really like the catalogue image of the man sitting on a bench and how it goes with everything else. Looks like he is contemplating about his life… sometimes one needs to do that! Every time I am creating in this journal I pull some thought and feelings that have been keeping me busy lately and work them into the page. It´ s very therapeutic and freeing. Have you tried it yet?

Have a good day!
