Immer optimistisch bleiben

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´ m stopping by to share another „junk art“ piece. This one has mainly product from my junk bag. the only things I added outside of the bag are the stenciling, stamping and paints. Rest is all just random leftovers and junk. I am really into making these mixed media pieces lately, because they are so much fun. They allow me just to add random stuff onto a piece and find a way to make it work for me.

And somehow they turn out to my liking without any exact before-planning. And that is what makes it so much fun! There is some texture paste added thru my STAMPlorations stencil, then some Klartext stamp images on the background and as a sentiment. Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks and Distress Paints for color and tissue paper as well as random leftover bits like the inked & dried out baby wipe strip. SO MUCH FUN!

Hope your day was great?! Mine was really good. I spent the afternoon with my son out in the city. We did some shopping and just chatted some. I´ m such a lucky boy-mom to have two boys who don´ t mind going shopping with their mom. Who said only girl-moms could do shopping sprees with their kids?! 🙂

And now I am really tired, so I´ ll go and and relax abit.

Alt genug

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s share is a mixed media piece, created using various leftover pieces from my „junk bag“. I was thinking I could frame this piece and give it away as a present to someone :).

On the background I have a gelli printed tissue piece, then some stenciling with Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. After that I´ ve got some Distress Paint and some Nuvo Shimmer Powder added to the background. The circles are from a leftover Glossy Spray sprayed piece. I just fussy cut them and added some outlining with a Posca pen. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment (using Klartext stamps) and a vintage figure that I also fussy cut out of a poster.

Here you can see some of the shimmer powder on the left bottom corner, by the way. I will add this piece to my „ugly art“ mixed media piece collection. I really enjoy doing these artworks, because it allows me to just play and add stuff without giving it too much thought.

Wishing you a great Thursday evening – it´ s almost Friday, lovelies!

#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 26

Hello and happy Thursday! Boy, it has been a week… and it has been so good to come home and just do 5 minutes of art every day for the #tuac5minchallenge. That has brought me down from ugly stress levels. Today´s piece is totally random, just lines and colour.

I took a gelli plate printing session residue piece and drew with white and black Posca pens on it. Then just some Dina Wakley gloss spray droplets on top, a strip of tissue paper here and there and some random alphas. I had to add the sentiment in the end, did a little overtime, but didn´t want to leave it out :).

I´ve decided to do 30 days of this for now and then see if I miss it and maybe do some more :).

See you tomorrow!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 13

Hello and happy Friday & happy WEEKEND!!! Hope you will find some time to sit outside, maybe swim a little and just have fun & also get creative. Here is my Day 13 for the Ugly Art Club #tuac5minchallenge:

And here is the video:

I tried to make this less cute, but not quite succeeded. I used plenty of bits that were still on my table from the previous day´s take. And combined those with a postal stamp from my junk bag and some random sticker words. I will need to try and get back to more „ugly“ not so cutesie style. I am not happy with where these are going. They don´t quite match the theme „ugly art“. Alone the colours make them look more cute than ugly. But at least I am keeping the in the time frame and getting junk pieces used.

See you again tomorrow! Have an awesome weekend!
