#the100dayproject – Days 86-90

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 this set I was coming towards the end already. After drawing the Queen of Hearts I wanted to give a try on Corpse Bride. So that was the first one. The floral tag went perfectly with the monochromatic bride in blue. For the second one I had pre-treated the die cut tag with india ink and therefore it was quite busy already. I figured white, black and red would work well, and first drew the „pop-art“ face only in red. However it disappeared into the background, so I added black lines for contrast.

The 3rd one was again full on colour, because I just felt like that again. Day 89 was my second (?) – I´ve lost count – paste treated tag, so I had only so little space for a face, so I went with what I knew and did smaller faces. this time in one-line-style. The last one was a heavily gelli printed tag with lots of colour on it, so I chose a red headed girl for that one. I also only at this point figured, that I could let the hair „flow“ in wind. After 89 drawings *LOL*. Thus, flowing hair here.

As you can see everything is a process and you learn as you go, some things come easier as others :).

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m sharing my second card project for the new paper goods STAMPlorations reveal with the Carpe Diem Ephemera Tiles set. Are you ready for some more reveal goodness?

This time I did a shaker card. I „hid“ the Carpe Diem tiles behind the confetti and the patterned paper „windows“. When the confetti moves around, you are able to read all the tile texts. A fun card to send to someone who loves confetti and shaker cards :).

After die-cutting the circles and adhering the acetate on place with the confetti and tiles underneath, I then decorated the card with some punched butterflies to add even more texture and interest to the card. Next I inked a white cardstock piece with Distress Ink in orange and added a STAMPlorations clear sticker on top. A button for decor and the card was done. The confetti, by the way, is by Tonic Studios (Nuvo).

It has been so much fun using these tiles on card projects. I still have two bonus cards to share, but that will have to wait until next week. So make sure you come back next week for a bit more Ephemera tile fun.

Have a great day and see you soon!

#the100dayproject – Days 76-80

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,

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,
xxx, Sanna
