Auf dem Weg..

Hello and happy Monday, today´s mixed media 5 minute piece is again done with Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and onto an old book page. In addition a alcohol ink & die cut piece with an old button and a junk metal piece create a focal point.

Some Posca´s in black and white and a Klartext stamp stamped sentiment to add detail. Very much random and very „junk“ art style / ugly art style piece. Just fun playtime after work :).

This time no video, just a quick photo share. Hope your Monday was good!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 30

Hello and happy Monday! I´ve reached DAY 30 of my #tuac5minchallenge journey today. I´ve created appr. 5 minutes every single day for the past 30 days and this is my last piece for now with a video.

I used a residue tissue paper I had done some gelli printing onto. Then a few leftover stamped images that I had colored in with Distress Crayons. And an old ribbon piece with a alcohol inked, die cut mirror cardstock piece. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment and some white Dina Wakley Gloss Spray.

It´s been a fun 30 days! But doing a video every single day is lots of work, so I might just keep dropping finished pieces by and do a video from time to time to accompany them. But really haven´t decided on that yet. I am just going to go with what feels the best that particular day. Might also be that I don´t do a daily 5 minutes, but rather a few a week. Let´s see.

So I´ll leave you today with a little guardian angel type of project piece. See you soon with another 5 min art piece of another type of challenge! xxx, Sanna

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 27

Hello and happy Friday! TGIF!!!!! It´s been a tough week and I am more than happy to enjoy some weekend relaxation time now. The sun has made a reappearance (yay!) and I´m going to enjoy it as long as it lasts. But before that, here is my #tuac5minchallenge Day 27 take:

I took a piece of old book page that had Gloss Sprays on it and added some Distress Crayon and Posca marks on top. Then a alcohol inked mirror cardstock die cut piece, an old button and random receipt bits for addition. And for finishing touches some more Gloss Spray.

Here´s the video again:

It´s ugly and messy and everything in between – my piece of Day 27, but I really like it alot. Only 3 more days to go for me (let´s see if I still continue after that). I might do a every-second/every-third day thing… let´s see. OR I´ll just do the 5 minutes and take a pic, but leave the video out. Still figuring that out.

Have a great weekend lovelies!

DIY colorful Dresden Paper images

Hello everyone! I have so much enjoyed watching the Facebook Lives by Tim Holtz recently! And a few weeks back (I think, I lost count of days and weeks) he shared this idea with his embossing glazes and crayons in combination with his Sizzix Impresslits die cut dies. I so fell in love with the results, BUT I don´t have the glazes yet, so there goes that idea (for now).

But he said something in his video that got me thinking. He said, he originally designed the dies to create DIY Dresden papers and didn´t do that much anymore, because it was just that, DIY Dresden.. I had some VERY OLD alcohol inks (old school, like Tim says!) in my stash and some silver mirror cardstock that would make perfect Dresden papers. So this idea came to my mind when I played with the silver paper and tried alcohol lift-ink on it and just played around. It was this what if moment you get while experimenting and just playing with product without any particular plan: I could do DIY alcohol ink colored Dresden images – that for sure would look cool!! And it did!!!

Here are the results:

For first step just apply the alcohol inks onto a silver mirror paper either directly (let flow, spread and dry on their own or use a felt piece to apply and then let properly dry out).

Next take any of Tim´s Impresslits dies out and die cut the alcohol inked papers. And BAM! Just look at this gorgeousness!!! I am in love! Sooo many cool colours. And they somehow remind me of vintage christmas tree baubles!!! Like the ones our grandma´s used to decorate the trees with. So until I get any of the glazes, I am going to use all my silver mirror paper pieces and old alcohol inks and make these! These pieces will make great additions to any mixed media project.

Thank you Tim for the inspiring video that got me into doing this :)! Love the results.

Happy crafting!

Baby boy card

Hello everyone and Happy Monday! Today I´m sharing a sweet baby boy card here on my blog. This one is very clean and simple in style and created using just a few elements.

The little clouds were die cut with a Sizzix cloud die from my stash from back in 2005!! The little elephants were stamped on light blue paper with black stamp ink, then fussy cut. Also the die cut letters are by Sizzix and go back to the time when I started scrapbooking.

Quite proud of myself for digging out some oldies but goodies for this card. The Elephants are by Close To My Heart, by the way.

Some of the clouds got a layer of Distress Ink on them, and also did the elephans. The polka dot paper is from my older stash, but I love it to pieces, therefore I have probably been saving it for so long :). Everything is adhered on place with either paper glue or 3D foam pads. Very simple and easy!

Wishing you a great week and happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
