Daily Art Practice – Day 30

Hello and happy Monday! How are you doing? My last week was a little from the rough side, therefore I also worked ahead abit. You really cannot do any productive things when you have has fresh surgery. Rest and recovery comes first! Therefore I have done quite a few days beforehand. Hope you don´ t mind.

See when I started this personal year-long challenge, I didn´ t really give it much thought :). Like, there will definitely be days and times that I simply cannot do a piece a day! Didn´ t think about that back then… So I will just live with what comes as it comes, I´ ve decided. I mean, it´ s just life, it´ s my time and my joy. If something comes in between, then so shall it be.

I hope these posts still cheer you guys up abit, inspire you and brighten your day. They do brighten mine! There are so many bad things going on in the world and so many peeps are depressed and down, so I try to do my bit and give you something cheerful to look at. Hope it helps!

I used Dina Wakley paints, STAMPlorations stencils (my line there), Distress Stains, Heavy Gesso, a Stabilo all pen and and Klartext “Denglisch 2” stamps. I´ ve used the “Denglisch” set on my previous pages, so I swapped to the set number 2 for the next days. I love adding those sentiments to these pages :).

Oh, and the translation goes something like this: “Don´ t invite trouble!”.
See you again tomorrow!! Have a great start into your week,
xxx, Sanna

Daily Art Practice – Day 20

Hello and happy Friday! It´ s snowing and the weather is really stormy outside right now, so it´ s nice to be indoors and drink some tea and just relax. Today´ s page, without further ado:

And the video for you to watch:

and some detail photos:

Oh, and the translation of this Denglisch text: “No offence”.
Keeping these posts short now – for details, see the video :). I figured it will be hard to do 365 videos (one per day) on the long run, and it is quite hard. So I am not going to do lot´ s of writing on these posts anymore – simply to save some time! See you tomorrow,

Daily Art Practice – Day 18

Hello and happy Wednesday. Another day of my daily art practice is done and dusted. This time with Day 18 of the Artist Almanac 2022.

I used some Neocolor 2´ s, STAMPlorations stencils (from my line there), gelli printed tissue residues, Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and of course another “Denglisch” stamp sentiment.

The particular one translates to: *sorry in advance for the language* Get lost! / Kiss my a..! / go to he..! / damn you!.

This is all for today – do come back tomorrow for another page. See you then! xxx, Sanna

Daily Art Practice – Day 15

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing my day 15 take on my personal daily art practice challenge. I make these pages using the Artist Almanc 2022 as my inspiration.

Today´ s page is a bit rub-on crazy, but oh well. I just could not stop :). And I´ ve got some old tissue tape that I´ ve misted with Glimmer Mists in there too. And another Denglisch stamp sentiment, of course. Then some Liquitex Titanium White ink, Dina Wakley Gloss Spray and my stencils (gelli printed) and Tim´ s Distress Paints.

So all kinds of goodness and fun stuff! Today´ s sentiment translated means something like: “Keep your chin up”!

This is all for today. See you again tomorrow!!

Trifecta Cardmaking – January 2022

Hello lovelies and welcome to another Trifecta Cardmaking share with STAMPlorations products. Today I share a set of cards, done in a bit different designs, but the starting point was always the same basic technique/end product.

This is the first card I made:

and here are some detail photos:

For the second card I again used the same idea: a gelli printed paper I had created with STAMPlorations stencils on old music notes. Here is the second card:

On the first card the bold background covers the whole card base, that way the end result looks totally different. Here the overall look is more clean and simple due to the white space and only a small gelli circle as a focal point. Here are some detail photos:

And now to the 3rd card:

On this one again as my starting point I used a gelli printed and stenciled paper. This time I took a leaf stamp and stamped with it onto the paper and then fussy cut the pieces. That way I have multi-colored and multi-patterned leaves on a plain background and it is still the same basic idea. On all cards I this way again have stencils, stamps and stickers used – but in a different way on each one. The clear stickers make great sentiments for the cards. And now to the steps. This time round I recorded a step-by-step video for you to watch so you can get a better idea. Hope you like it!

I hope you enjoyed this months Trifecta cards and ideas! If you want to know how to do the stenciled papers, there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube (or check out Birgit Koopsen´ s Instagram Account – there are plenty of ideas up there!). I also made a similar technique with foam stamps and paints, but you could use stencils instead. That video is HERE. Oh, and here are some detail photos of the last card:

See you again in March with another Trifecta tutorial. STAMPlorations is taking a break in February from regular posts.

Happy crafting,
