Hello and happy Saturday! I am late posting these, because it´ s been a few rougher days in the family. So this is Wednesday, but only had time and energy to share this today.
For this I used leftover paper strips, book pages, some gesso and my STAMPlorations stencil with Distress Oxide. The paper doll is by Tim Holtz, the stamps again by Klartext and the pink splatters were done with Dina Wakley Gloss Spray.
And here are a few detail photos:
So our kids are down with Corona, I am probably the next to get it. We have all had 3 jabs, so hoping all goes by well and mildly, but still, might not be able to share so much the next days. Just going to share, at least, the ones I have finished earlier this week. My FIL is also not doing so well atm, due to other health issues, so everything has been kinda chaotic and a bit tough the past days.
Hello and happy Saturday! Today´ s page is done and it was a fun one to make. Plenty of stencils and lots of colour :).
I used some of my stencil line stencils (by STAMPlorations) on the background with Distress Oxides, then added Gelatos and Neocolor 2 crayons. After that I stampted with Klartext stamps to the background and added some white gesso stenciled over it. On the very top are wripped strips of the almanac page.
Here are some detail photos:
I hope you enjoyed watching today´ s piece. See you again tomorrow with another daily art piece. Take care, Sanna
Hello and happy Friday! It´ s been one week of Daily Art Practice now. Only 51 more weeks to go (oh my..!). So far I´ ve enjoyed the short daily processes alot. The more time consuming part of this is obviously preparing the post and the video. It all actually takes more time than just creating the piece. But I am trying to keep it all very simple and don´ t edit that much. That way it´ s easier to prepare. Here is day 6:
I used Dina´ s Gloss Paints on the background. I love the bright colours in combination with the almanac page´ s pink tones. I added some Nuvo Drops thru a STAMPlorations stencil in there too, then some old random rub-ons, but they fit in perfectly with the “Denglisch” sentiment, actually. Just a fun thing, not planned, and it turned out good. Now to the video:
I have already prepared a place for these 3 tags from the past days – they will be interactive on a page and behind them will be at least one more day or maybe even two. Let´ s see how my plan works out. Here are some details:
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!!! xxx, Sanna
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!!!
