Grow Art Journal page

Hello lovelies! This month has been all about art journaling, mainly because that has been the only things I have been able to do after surgery – sitting long times is not the best medicine, thus small journal pages!

Art journaling has been my way of pain and stress relief this month. Staying at home and social distancing can be kinda hard on a long run. Experimenting in my journal has helped me sort my feeling and thoughts.

For this journal I used Scribble Sticks with a Dina Wakley stamp, some spray ink (yellow) and Liquitex ink in gold. There is also some Dina Wakley media washi tape on this page. I love this tape so much – the colours and pattern is jsut great.

For my focal point, I drew leaves. The word grow and the doodled sentiment work well with the drawn leaves.

So what have you been doing during social distancing? Have you crafted much or did you loose your mojo? Except for PT I´ve been resting much and tried to make a page a day, just to get my mind off things.

Wishing you a great day!
xxx, Sanna


See the world – MMCC May reveal

Hello there lovelies! It´s again time to share this months Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s May challenge. The challenge theme is REFLECTIONS and you can use WATER as optional element.

This is how I interpreted the theme:

Sanna LippertI created a sunset scenery. I first used Brusho with watercolor paper to create the water surface, then added yellow and white ink to create the reflection of the sun. For the sky I used Distress Inks (blue, pink and orange) and inked first the sun and then the blue sky. Next I placed a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil over the sky and applied some orange and pink ink thru the stencil onto the sky. The clouds are created with water and the birds are hand drawn.

Here are some detail shots:  Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Finally I wanted to add some interest to the water surface, so I rubbed Tim Holtz Rubbings onto it. The sun also has a layer of Gold Metallic creative Medium by Imagine Crafts on it for additional interest and dimensionality. The stencil here is also by The Crafter´s Workshop. The mountains on the horizon are fussy cut from Through the Lens – Stone patterned paper set by Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Sanna LippertI hope you find the time to join in on this challenge with us!!! Looking forward to seeing your creations!!!

See you at MMCC,
