Hello and happy Sunday! Today i am again dropping by to share my next page in my Daily Art Practice Journal, where I use the Artist Almanac 2022 pages as my starting point.
I loved the March 27th almanac page so much!! It is exactly something that totally speaks to me at the moment. I just kept adding bits and bobs to the background from my scrap-jar and ended up with this. A Tim Holtz paper doll on top and some Stabilo all black to the background plus a Klartext stamp finishes everything off.
And there is again a video up on my YouTube channel – where you can also watch all previous pages, if you want to:
Here are some detail photos of the page too:
See you next week again with more journal pages and some Dani Peuss related projects. Have a fabulous Sunday! xxx, Sanna
Hallo ihr Lieben! Heute möchte ich Euch eine weitere Karte zeigen, die ich mit dem neuen Klartext-Stempelset “Emotional Notwendig” gestaltet habe. Jetzt ist es sicher schon klar, dass ich diesen Stempelset total mag :). Hier also eine weitere Karte:
Ich finde diesen Spruch so genial! Also musste ich die netten Damen da auf die Karte draufsetzen und die zwei Sprüche dazu stempeln. Die roten Nasen sind das typfelchen auf dem “I”. Und die Papiere auf der Karte sind auch von Dani Peuss Herbstmagie-Kollektion.
Diese Karte bekommt auch jemand, der diesen Humor auch sicher versteht :-D. Ich hatte auf jedem Fall viel Spass bei der Gestaltung dieser Karte!! Ich hoffe Eure Woche verläuft schön!
Hello and happy Monday! Work has begun again, so I am very excited to see how this daily art practice will work out in the long run, but I am trying my best to squeeze in a few minutes every day.
Here is day 9 with the Artist Almanac 2022:
For this page I´ ve used up all the tiny bits and pieces that were left from previous days PLUS the almanac page of day 9. Also some gelli printed paper in on this page, as well as leftover pieces of eco-dyeing-paper I did years back with Tina Walker, when she visited me :). Here is the video.
Today´ s piece is a hot mess of paper scraps and I also tried stenciling with Dimensional Pearls, but that didn´ t work out as planned :). Oh well, I still managed to struggle a page together. Here are some details:
I also continued using the Denglisch stamps here again. I think they fit these pages so well. That´ s why. This is it for today, see you again tomorrow!!
Hello and happy Friday! I have a card share up for today, even though I first planned on not posting until January. Oh well! But then I played a little and as a result this card was born :).
I did the #bestnine2021 grid the other day and noticed that most of the projects on that list were mixed media ones. And while I saw them, I remembered how much fun I had while creating the projects. And as a result, this card was born.
If you are interested on seeing my top nine posts from 2021 – here they are:
Most of the projects are from the 5 minute mixed media project sessions. And funny enough, my first reel got really many likes too and landed on this grid. And really many peeps also liked my CAS Christmas tags I did with Klartext stamps. So many of you also love clean and simple in addition to mixed media. I do jump in between both styles, depending on what I´ m working on. What is not on this grid are some of the faces I did for “the100daychallenge”. I personally liked them alot, but I guess they were not everyones cup of tea :). I like doing these grids at the end of year – mainly to see a selection of a years work, rather than to see what someone liked and didn´ t like.
Another interesting thing I like to do, is the Year Of Colour grid/report. I find it interesting to see what colours dominated in my work during a certain time period. I am a huge fan of yellow – always have been, since I was little. I cannot say why, it just is a colour that makes me feel happy and makes me smile. What surprises me this year, is the amount of red in that picture. So much red!! I haven´ t been feeling red for a while. Therefore it is a big surprise. The blues, the greens and even the purples are more me.
I find strong pink tones very appealing at the moment, like on the card here – maybe that will be my dominating colour next year? Who knows :). I haven´ t decided on my word for 2022 yet. Have you? For some reason I long for peace. Might be that my word turns out to be calm, peace, calmness, peace of mind or something like that.
How about you? Did you do your #bestnine this year? I´ d love to see them!! Also, what were your colours this year and why do you think those colours in particular accompnied you? Also what about your word for 2022? Any preferences there? I´ d love to hear from you!!!
Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again stopping by to share another “junk art” piece. I gathered various bits and bobs from my junk bags together and they resulted in this piece:
It is a random piece of corrugated cardboard that I painted with Distress Paints and some Dina Wakley Gloss Spray first. Then I added some stamping with Klartext (by Dani Peuss) stamps with black ink and then took a glimmer misted jar lid and adhered that onto the piece. the vintage paper dolls are by Tim Holtz and they got little wings from residue paper pieces (old Basic Grey papers). Then some Nuvo Mousse stenciled and Gloss Spray misted paper to the side and a white ribbon piece I painted with Distress paints to go with it.
On top some wripped Prima flower petals and silver star puffy stickers and a stamped sentiment that says: “Fly with me to the moon”. The other word “mondsüchtig” translates to “moonstruck”.
This piece could be hung on a wall on it´ s own or framed in a 3D frame. I really like how it turned out and it is junk art again, which makes me very happy. BUT it didn´ t take me only 5 minutes to make it – it took a tad longer :).
