Daily Art Practice – Day 5

Hello and happy Thursday! Here is my daily art practice post again for DAY 5 with the Artist Almanac 2022.

I did a big mess with Distress Paints, so most of the beginning of my video comes from that. The actual creating process would have resulted on a much shorter video. But these things happen, so I am not going to dwell on it.

On this piece I wanted to leave most of the almanac page as it is and just more some parts around / cut only small pieces out of it. I adde some sticker alphas and again a Klartext “Denglisch” stamp sentiment onto the page. A little feather and a shell button decorate the tag also.

This was a fun one to do, although the paint accident. See you again tomorrow with more mixed media fun! Can´ t wait to play more!!

Hallo ihr Lieben! Heute möchte ich Euch wieder eine Karte zeigen, die ich in Mixed Media-Stil gestaltet habe. (FOR ENGLISH JUST HIT THE GOOGLE TRANSLATE BUTTON ON THE SIDE BAR!) Ich habe kürzlich ja meine neun meis geliketen Werke aus dem Jahr 2021 auf Instagram geteilt. Da waren ganz viele Mixed Media-Werke dabei und das hat mich wieder daran erinnert, welche zu gestalten. Mixed Media macht mir unheimlich viel Spass!! Deswegen heute auch wieder eine Karte in diesem Stil.

Auf dem Hintergrund habe ich ganz viele Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays verwendet. Diese Pinktöne lassen mein Herz höher schlagen :). Und dazu die mit Sprühfahben behandelte Borte und ein gestempelter Spruch von Klartext. Passt alles einfach super zusammen!

Auf dem Hintergrund habe ich auch etwas Krakelierpaste von Tonic Studios mit einer Schablone von STAMPlorations verwendet. Dazu einige freihändig geschnittene Regentropfen, ein paar Wörte aus einem Griechisch-Deutsch-Wörterbuch und ein Paper Doll von Tim Holtz. Ganz viele verrückte Details miteinander gemischt auf einer Karte und ich mags genau so. Bunt und lebendig!

Ich wünsche Euch einen schönen Feiertag und ein schönes, langes Wochenende!!!

Daily Art Practice – Day 4

Hello lovelies! Today´ s art practice is live! This time it´ s a tag. I will be doing these smaller pieces from time to time to add them to my journal. I am creating more interactive pages, because I have to fit in a full year and it only has a limited amount of pages :).

Here is the video:

The stamped sentiment under the date is again from a Klartext stamp set called “Denglisch” (see supply list). And here are some more photos:

I just wripped the beautiful 4th of January almanac page into smaller pieces to add it to my tag as a background. I found it quite hard to put it into pieces, because I liked it so much as it is. :). Who else identifies with this?

See you again tomorrow! Oh, and I will of course be posting other stuff here too, not just these daily practices. So some days you will find more than one post going live. Going to be a busy, busy year for me ;-). Wish me luck!

Happy crafting,
xxxx, Sanna


Daily Art Practice w/ 2022 Artist Almanac – Day 2

Hello lovelies! Today´ s art practice is live! If you want to know what this is all about and missed my first post, then just read this post for details :). Here is what I did:

For day two I chose a ATC sized card that is hidden in a pocket. The Almanac pieces are wripped and added on top of the card and the pocket. The stamps are by Klartext (“Denglisch” set) from Etsy and from Studio Calico kits from back in the day (the roller stamp).

The Denglisch sentiment translates into something like: “Don´ t bug me/Don´ t get on my nerves”. And here is the video:

I had some trouble with the timer on this one. The phone thingy just isn´ t working an stresses me out more than it helps. This piece/these pieces were done in appr. 5-6 minutes, by the way.

The journal I am using has place for about 180 days – so appr. half a year long of pages. Therefore I was thinking of doing pockets and flip pages and incorporating smaller bits to the journal to get all 365 days into one journal. Let´ s see how that will work out in the end. But that is the plan.

Today´ s piece is nothing special (technique wise), but it was a fun one to do. Feeling bad about messing around with the timer thingy on my phone. Does not help and only frustrates me during creating. Going to need to find a better solution for that. But, on the other hand, this is the reality, not everything works out like a dream and there are mistakes and chaos and all the normal stuff is going on (=real life) here too, so things just happen the way they do. Theretore, I decided to just post whatever the outcome/trouble during video :). Cannot do anything else anyways, because I only have this one piece to work with per day. LOL! So this is what I can share…

See you again tomorrow 🙂 ,

Daily Art Practice w/ 2022 Artist Almanac – Day 1

Hello everyone, like mentioned on my Instagram Account, I am planning on creating a piece every day this year and recording a video to go with it. My first one was a total disaster – the video, not the piece – as I messed up the recording and only have a piece of it to share. BUT I improvised and did a photo-add-on to the video that explains all the steps I did. The total time I used for this page was a little over 7 minutes. And here is the piece:

If you are interested on getting yourself a 2022 artist almanac – here is one possibility to get one – go to Tina Walker´ s Insta – she has all contributors listed and some of them still have calendars available :).

(picture from Tina´ s Insta Account)

I went with the colours from the almanac page and added inks and Posca pen details to the background in same tones. The tag is a recycled piece and I´ ve added a gelli printed leftover piece onto the tag. Then some Klartext “Denglisch” stamp sentiments on top – done with VersaFine Clair ink. The 2022 stickers are by Simple Stories and from the Dani Peuss December Scrapbooking Kit.

The sentiment translates to something like: “Have a good one”! It´ s in “Denglisch” which means a German saying directly translated into English. Only makes sense to German speaking peeps and they find it quite funny. I like these Denglisch stamps so much and wanted to use them on my calendar page. You might be seeing them showing up on regular basis throughout this project :).

I fussy cut the almanac page into smaller bits and added half circles to the background and outlined them with a Stabilo all pen. The leaf pattern on the tag is from the almanac page too. I also love the idea of adding the date to the page for every day. That way I can record daily feelings/thoughts and also see how my “style”/color choices etc. change throughout the year. I am kind of recording my own development with this project. And keeping it short challenges me even more. Here is the video:

Sorry for messing the recording up! But I still hope you get the idea!! I had fun creating this page and am really happy how it turned out – even though I totally panicked while recording and thus messed it all up! Better luck next time, I guess!!

Tomorrow will be another day to play. I might not write so much every day or do a long blog post, but instead just put up the video for you to watch. Because there will be days I for sure can not do a full post and edit the video etc. as there is work and life and family and everything else to be done too :). But I still hope you will enjoy these short takes in incorporating the almanac in my daily practices.

See you tomorrow!!!
