#the100dayproject – Days 76-80

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I drew a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag. You can also see all the posts on my Instagram account (here), since I am now done with the drawing challenge. And you can also watch all the videos directly on my YouTube channel too (here).

For these faces I mainly used Neocolor 2´s again. At this point, the more I drew, the more comfortable I felt and the more ideas I had. I was braver and experimented more. I also was more relaxed about the drawing process itself. I had somehow found my „nook“ how I wanted to draw or which media felt good to draw with, so if made the whole process a bit easier.

I can´t quite believe how much one can learn in 80 days, imagine in 100 days. Just a little time every day took me already so far. Imagine I´d do this the whole year?

Oh, here I again did another half-face drawing, because I loved the first one so much. And I also did a face using only 3 colours (brown, black and white) and quite enjoyed it too. I really enjoyed the drawing process very much every day. I was already looking forward to it during daytime at IRL work. It felt very soothing, but also exciting and inspiring to take a tag and draw a face never knowing, how they would turn out in the end.

Happy drawing,

#the100dayproject – Days 66-70

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I drew a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag.

Day 68

For days´s 68-70 there is no video, because I didn´t have time for that. Just this diashow.

Day 69

Day 70

My absolute favorite of this set if the first one! I took more time for it, than just 15 minutes. I did plenty of shading, layers of colours and I love how the eye turned out. Even if it´s just a half face, I´m really happy with it. Also the nose turned out almost realistic and good in shape. At this point I really felt like I had found my way of drawing faces and was really enjoying the process.

For some of the faces I didn´t record a video because I was thinking that they are all pretty much the same anyway, so I just posted photos of the finished faces on my Insta and then created a diashow for YouTube. But later I again returned to recording the process, because it´s also something I might return to later after not drawing a face for a while I might need a reminder how I did it in the first place :).

And I really enjoy the softness of the Neocolor 2´s! They are my kind of crayons. It felt easier adding shadows with them, because they face in nicely and you can add depth by adding layers on top of each other.

Happy drawing,

Hello, you are amazing!

Hi there and happy Saturday! Today I´m stopping by to share a a VERY PINK clean and simple card made out of all kinds of bits and bobs left from kits, packaging and happy mail.

For this card I used a backgroup paper gifted to me by Donna (thank you!). The sentiment piece is from a Bramble Fox acrylic shape packaging and the other pieces are from a Wild Hare Kits kit from my time at their design team. I just love how this turned out! The flamingo got a bit of glitter on it (done with Nuvo Drops).

And the amazing plate I´ve displayed my card on is from the awesome Tulü Porzellan store in Vienna. Do check them out if you are in the area! Such a nice store with such pretty kitchenware!

I hope you have a gorgeous weekend, everyone! Here in the Vienna region we have a heat wave. First it was crazy cold and then suddenly it´s +34 degrees. I´m trying to stay inside due to the heavy pollen exposure at the moment. My allergy has been sooo bad this year.

Happy crafting,

My take on face drawing is an artsy, abstract one. I am not trying to learn how to draw realistic faces, because at the moment a) it is not my interest and b) I don´t think I am very good at that type of drawings. But this type of mixed media face drawing just interests me very much and I also enjoy it a lot!

I´ve still got quite a few days to go until day 100, but it has been lots of fun so far. So be sure to come back to take a look of the next 5 :). I wish you all an amazing week!!!

Happy crafting,

Christmas cards with Very Much Merry collection – Studio Tekturek

Hello lovelies!! Did you know that Studio Tekturek has a lovely new collection out, called „Very Much Merry„. So this year, Christmas is going to be very pastellic toned. I love the designs. Especially the Santa journaling cards and the tiny Xmas tree paper!

slider 4

I got this super cute paper in the works and I ended up creating a big pile of Christmas cards with it! A total of 11 cards for starters. Once I got started, I could not stop!

Here are the first four cards. Those Santa´s make me smile!! And the cute journaling cards are perfect for a December Daily, but also make a really nice detail on a Christmas card! I wanted to concentrate on the paper and leave them space to shine, so I kept the decoration very simple.

I did also make some shaker cards, by die cutting a Christmas tree from the patterned paper and filling the shaker part with various tones of confetti. Rest of the shaker cards I kept really simple, just adding the patterned paper and a little sentiment sticker.

I´ve also added some Nuvo Drops on top of the shaker Christmas tree windows. This adds a fun detail to the trees – almost like baubles.

The green and blue snowflake card have the patterned paper peeking thru from the background and an inked piece of white cardstock is on top. I especially love how the tiny Christmas trees are peeking thru behind the snowflake. The other cards I really clean and simple in style. I wanted to make them that way to get the papers stand out more. They are so beautiful on their own, that they really do not need much decoration at all. Some Nuvo Drops and stamping here and there and that´s enough in my opinion.

I´ll be sharing more projects, created using these papers very soon. I cannot wait to create Christmas present tags with this collection!! And also cannot wait to send these cards to friends and family :)!!!

Check out the Studio Tekturek STORE and spread the word about their lovely designs. It´s a small family business who can use all the support they can get, especially during these difficult times with lockdowns and social distancing!! Be sure to check out their store for more collection and designs and follow them on Insta.

See you soon with even more projects!! Happy crafting!
