Daily Art Practice – Day 63

Hello and happy Saturday! Today´ s daily art practice piece is done and dusted. I didn´ t really feel like creating, this whole situation that is going on in Ukraine and the state of the world atm. just makes me feel that way. Therefore I just cut and adhered pieces onto the page basically.

Nothing really felt good when creating this page, so I ended up adding black washi tape across it and some thick Posca marker around the edges. It just felt good to make this type of page today. Not really feeling artsy with what is going on.

Here are a few detail photos:

Hoping you are speding some time with loved ones today and just enjoying the time together. Take care,

Daily Art Practice – Day 21

Hello and happy Saturday! Today´ s page is for a change a full / bigger one. I really struggled with this one, because I just didn´ t know where I wanted to go with it.

All I knew is that I wanted to use magenta and yellow. I also had a very old washi tape that just would not work properly – I hardly could get it from the roll!!! Took me ages just to do those bits.

So the page was full of frustrating moments and cluelesness. I therefore like the denglisch sentiment here so much. It says “sponge over it” which translated means something like: “forget it” / “let´ s move on” / “no hard feelings”.

Here is the video to my chaos page of today:

and some detail photos:

See you again tomorrow with a hopefully better page. Now to enjoy the weekend!

Daily Art Practice – Day 14

Hello lovelies! Today´ s daily art practice is live. I again added the past 4 days to this page – first: to save space and second: to make the journal more interactive. I am really having fun with this Artist Almanac inspired journal atm. Here is today´ s page:

The page on the right is the one for today. I got some vintage photos into my hands recently and I am so, so eager to use them and such a journal is a perfect place. Also the pose of that lady is perfect for today´ s Denglisch sentiment which translates to: you are getting on my nerves / you´ ve been asking for it.

and here are some detail photos:

See you again tomorrow!!!

Clean and simple Valentine´s Day cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s that time of the month again: time to share my Elizabeth Craft Designs guest team member project with you! This time I´ve created a set of clean and simple Valentine´s Day cards with just a few products!

For this card I also recorded a start-to-finish video. I thought it would give you a better idea on how to work with the Clear Double Sided Adhesive and the Silk Microfine Glitter. See the video for all the steps on how to create this card. Hope you like it!

For my second card I used the same Fitted Hearts die set, but this time I took some of the Elizabeth Craft Designs washi tape and adhered that on a piece of white paper. After covering the paper with the washi, I ran two different sizes of hearts thru my die cutting machine and die cut the “washi paper”.

Then I just arranged the hearts onto a card base and adhered them on place. For finishing touches I added a stamped and heat embossed sentiment on a dark blue paper and fussy cut it into a banner form. A very simple and easy to do card was done in no time! If you have been looking for a nice way to use some washi, this card idea might be something for you.

I hope I could inspire you with my CAS cards today!! See you again next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs product project here on my blog.
Have a great day!

What counts AJ page

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share with you some sunshiny yellow in combination with light blue/turquoise. Basically summer colours really. These colours make me happy and bring me joy and lift my mood!

This is just a fun, litte page experiment with Dina Wakley Scribble Stics. I used then almost solely for this page. I just added colours that felt good that particular moment. I actually started with the circles. I drew random circles with magenta onto the journal page, then added lots of happy yellow and combined that with lime and turquoise.

Then I added the black scribbles, drawn with my right hand (which is not my writing hand!) and fussy cut some Tina Wakley scribble girls washi tape into the circles. For finishing touches I made splatters with Dina´s Scribble Sticks, added golden paint troplets which I “rolled down” with a straw to create that smeared, flat image. And then I wrote the “thought bubble” alongside the black lines.

I like the brightness and happiness of this page so much. We are still on lockdown (except we get to go to work in the office on some days, rest is home-office) here and it will go all the way to 8th of February now. And who knows how long after that still.. So we need some happiness here, urgently. I hope I could brighten up your day also abit with this page!
