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!

Be you AJ page

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing a sneak into my art journal. I have been playing abit again, but still not quite feeling it. I had so much fun creating the previous months and now it´s like I am in the middle of a standstill. Oh well, here is today´s share anyways:

Making the paper out of which I cut the little circles was fun! I really felt inspired while making that. Maybe I should have just stopped there? However, I went on and did this page. Didn´t quite feel it and also had no clue where I was going with it. But I finished it anyways.

I had Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays and her Scribble Sticks and paints out. Also a stamp set by Tim Holtz. And some old alphas and Wycinanka chipboard for creating the title for the page. It was good to use up some older product.

So I finished this page, but I am still not feeling the mojo. Therefore, I think I just need to take a real break from my craft room for a few days. Reload my creative energies abit and then try again.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend and lots of happy, crafty moments!

A set of DWM tags

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m stopping by with another tag share. These, again are created with plenty of Dina Wakley Media product. I am so enjoying this at the moment!

These are again done using plenty of gloss sprays, but also Dina´s heavy body paints as well as her collage collective book, her washi and tissue paper. The stencils on the right tag are all by The Crafter´s Workshop and the little words are handmade by my friend Lizzy. I adore them!

This background is pressed on splots of gloss sprays. Repeatedly. After the spray was dry, I attached the tissue paper image with gel medium and colored the face with Distress Crayons by Tim Holtz. The word is by my friend Lizzy and the red circle is from Dina´s collage collective book.

For this tag I was simply dabbing residue paint thru a stencil. Both paints by Dina. Then I sprayed the gorgeous lemon gloss spray on top. Let that layer dry and added the fussy cut circles from Dina´s collage collective book. Then some washi, the handmade word and some journaling.

I really like how these tags turned out. I might keep them as they are and even frame them OR I´ll add them to a journal page later. Time will tell.

I´m hoping the next weeks will be better, weather wise, because I am on vacation. Ha! So funny, doing a vacation without going anywhere special. Well, strange times require unusual measures. So no vacay.. I didn´t have one last summer due to my first knee surgery and now the second knee and covid19. I sure hope next year will be better (fingers crossed). I so, so, so miss the sand and the sea. What about you? Any plans?

Wishing you a nice day and weekend!!

Perspective AJ page

Hello and happy Thursday!! Today I´m again stopping by to share another peek into my art journal. This one resulted from random play again. I was just adding colours until everything felt right and then went from there.

I had originally pressed a wet stencil onto the background (can you see the light stencil pattern peeking thru here and there? Next I added more spray ink to the right edge and let the ink move freely and created droplets. When it was dry, I took a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil and applied Dina Wakley´s turquoise paint thru it onto the page. I love the orange with the turquoise! Such a fresh combo!!

Then I felt like adding black. That made the rest of the colours pop! I loved the look, so I didn´t want to overdo it. Therefore the Posca Pen drawn faces. they are light and don´t compete with the rest. I love drawing this type of faces so much! Learned to love it at Louise Nelson´s class in Norway two years ago :).

Then I found a quote that I liked and wrote that down with a white signo uni-ball pen. I´ve ruined quite a few (was not patient enought with wet paint – I wil never learn!), but got myself replacements, so everything is fine now :).

For the hair parts I used a grey Distress Crayon by Tim Holtz/Ranger. Rest is Posca pens. I think I am going to put this one in a frame at some point.

Have a gorgeous day everyone!!

Party! card

Hello lovelies! I am still on my stash busting journey and I made this easy-to-do card with some older product from my stash. I combined two of my faves – Sassafras product and stenciling.

So here is a fun card for a birthday party and/or invitation. This one is really very simple to do. Just place a stencil onto the card base, add two tones of Distress Ink thru it and then decorate with stickers, buttons and sticker alphas! And you can even add some Nuvo Drops for additional fun, if you want. That´s it!

I have piles and piles of stickers I still want to use up – also pleeeenty of buttons in my stash. So it´s good to use one or two here and there! And that monster is perfect for a childrens party theme, right?

That´s it for today. Come back on Friday to see another card that I am sharing here.

See you,
xxx, Sanna
