Art AJ page

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Now this is just random play, but I love the colours. A little something to bring me joy while I´m still missing my mojo. I just added stuff until I felt like there was nothing more to add – also obviously because the page was already so full (LOL).

I first painted the background in two colours – apricot and blue and then went from there. I added some writing with Posca pens onto the background. Just random things I felt like writing down.

Next I took the Carabelle circle stencil out and added some DWM gloss sprays thru it onto the background. Next I added random splots of spray onto the upper part and let them from droppings to the page. While that was drying I sprayed some residue chipboard with the gloss sprays and also pressed some gloss spray to the „tag“ and then stamped the words onto the tag.

For finishing touches I added the sprayed chipboard and some fussy cut circles from another AJ page shared here previously. Then I did some details with Posca pens and added some Thickers for additional detail. That´s it!

Making this crazy mess felt much better already. So I´m hoping my mojo will soon return from whereever it went :).

Have a great Sunday and a good start into the new week!

Do Good AJ page

Hello there and happy Monday evening! I´m stopping by to share an art journal page with you. This one is just random play, while trying to get my mind free of things bothering me.

How´s your Monday getting along? I feel drained after work today – already can hear my bed calling my name *LOL*. I think it´s partly because of the back paint I´ve been experiencing lately. Still some side-effects emerging from time to time, post surgery, I think.

Art usually helps – but I feel too tired for that even. What is your recipy for overcoming total tiredness? Except for the obvious – sleep? When I´m this drained, it usually affects my mood in a bad way and I really hate, when that happens. So if you have any tips for survival, I´m all ears!!!

Like mentioned before, this page is just a result of random play. I misted a background with spray ink, putting fussy cut circles here and there. Then I outlined the circles with black paint, waited for that layer to dry and added Distress Crayons. I also removed some of the crayon with a baby wipe (thru a stencil). That way the stencil pattern appears. The stamping is a planner stamp set by Elizabeth Craft Designs and other than that I used a STAMPlorations stencil to create the crackle paste images. For finishing touches I added a quote.

OK, that´s all from me today. I´m feeling bedtime coming earlier today 🙂

This week can only get better from here on 😀 – wishing you a lovely, creative week!!!

Remember the now ATC

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing yet another artist trading card, created using some of the new Elizabeth Craft Designs product I received in the mail last week.

For this one I created the background using Distress Inks and Stains, then stamped in the same way, like on the ATC shared yesterday (read more here).

So the background is similar/identical to the one shared yesterday, but for this one I also used some leftover die cut pieces as leaves, then added a suede ribbon that I misted with spray ink and matted the card onto a turquoise piece of burlap. Also this one has a sentiment as additional detail.

Love the contrast of pink and turquoise with the black stamping. Adding these pieces to my ATC stash again.

Wishing you all a great begin into the weekend!!
Happy crafting,

Card set and ATC

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I recently received some happy mail from Elizabeth Craft Designs and could not wait to play with the new products. So here is the first set from that play session:

I adore the Budding Florals die set and created a few clean and simple cards with it. These cards are so easy to make:

Just pick a piece of patterned paper or cardstock you like, cut into size and then place the die cut die onto the right edge of the paper, run thru the die cutting machine and remove the die cut itself. Save that for later.

Next take a second (into size cut) piece of paper and repeat the first step. Now adhere the background piece on place. Then swap the die cut pieces with each other and adhere onto the empty area. Decorate with sequins and a stamped sentiment. Done!

For the ATC I simply used the leftover patterned paper piece and die cut one golden pattern on top, adhered it on place and then put some yellow twine around the center. A button (DIY with resin and a mold) decorates the center and a stemped sentiment finishes the artist trading card off. That´s it!

I hope you enjoyed this little card share! Be sure to stop by next week for a few more shares, created with the new ECD product!

Happy crafting,
