#the100dayproject – Days 11-15

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m again stopping by to share my next faces drawn on tags for my personal #100daysoffaces 2021 challenge. If you want to see them go live every day, then you should follow my Instagram account for the daily posts. I´ll share them here on my blog in groups with links to the videos.

Day 11

This tag is die cut from white carstock with a STAMPlorations tag die and I´ve added a hue of indian ink as a stripe on it. After that I just drew the face with Posca´s very quickly and added some shading.

Day 12

For this tag I´ve again used white cardstock, then die cut it with a STAMPlorations tag die (see product list at the end of this post) and applied green and yellow spray ink onto it. The faces are again drawn and coloured with Posca pens.

Day 13

This tag is die cut from a woodgrain paper and then covered partly with white gesso. On top of that I´ve sketched a face with a pencil and added shadows with a black Posca.

Day 14

For this tag I´ve firs played with my gel plate from Gelli Arts with acrylic paints and my stencils. Next I´ve drawn a face with Neocolor 2 pens. The splatters were added with a water tank brush in the end.

Day 15

This is a grey cardstock paper, die cut with a STAMPlorations tag die. Then painted partly with black paint and after that drawn and coloured using Neocolor 2´s again.

As always, go and see the short videos for each tag on my YouTube channel. You´ll find the link to a particular tag always immediately under the photo. Hope you enjoy them!

Have a great day!

Beauty is a light – AJ page

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m stopping by to share a face from my art journal page with you guys. In the meantime I find it easy to draw tag sized faces, but a much bigger challenge for me is going bigger (like art journal page size).

I don´t get the proportions the way I want them to be. But anyhow, here is a face experiment with some stamped pattern on the background that I did using a DIY foam stamp (for details, see this video).

Rest ist done using my absolute current favorites – Neocolor 2 crayons by Caran d´Ache. I like the consistency of them so much. They are soft enough and can be used with water and a water tank brush and that is something I enjoy doing at the moment.

Also, could not resist to add a quote. She might not be a beauty, but there is light in her heart ;-). Just yesterday I talked to a colleague at work about drawing faces and my hobby in general and how it helps me relax and reload. Some people run to loose the stress, I reload my batteries thru my hobby.

Hope your day is a good one!

You can count on me – layout

Hello everyone and happy Monday! It´s again time to share another scrapbook layout tutorial with you today, created with Studio Forty product. I´ve again used the Moonchild collection and various clear stamps, word stickers and transparent stickers from the Studio Forty product range on this layout. Additionally I´ve created fun background details and colored some stamped images with Neocolor II watersoluble was crayons. I had so much fun creating this page!!! Here is my finished layout:

And here are some close-up photos:

I´ve used the Moonchild collection „I´m a dreamer“ & „Spirit of nature“ clear stamp sets to stamp the dreamcatchers for the layout. For coloring I used the previosly mentioned Neocolor II watersoluble crayons. They work really well even with the regular white cardstock and the water tank brush!! And the colors worked so well together with the beautiful Moonchild collection papers.

For more details about the layout and the product, also see the blog post over at the Studio Forty blog. If you are interested on the product I´ve used on this page, see the end of this blog post for a full material list with direct links. If a product is not available/linkable, then I always try to add a similar alternative to the link list.

This collection has inspired me so much that I´ve created a second video tutorial for you guys to watch. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to scrap some yourself!!! Here is the video:

Now be sure to hop over to the Studio Forty blog for even more inspiration – my design team colleagues have created beautiful projects that you should definitely take a look at too! Stay tuned for more tutorial posts next month!! See you then!

Happy scrapping,
xxx, Sanna
