Lazy Summer Days


Hallo zusammen, schön, dass ihr bei mir vorbeischaut!
Heute habe ich eine Doppelseite in meinem großen Art Journal, das ich mir unlängst gekauft habe, für euch.
Ich habe sie für Country View Challenge gestaltet, um euch eine weitere Inspiration für  unsere Challenge "Hot Summer Days" zu geben. Unten findet ihr auch eine Schritt für Schritt Anleitung, wie ich die Seiten aufgebaut habe. Also viel Spaß beim Anschauen und vielleicht habt ihr ja Lust teilzunehmen, ihr könnt einen £ 20 Gutschein gewinnen! Ein paar Tage habt ihr noch Zeit!

Hello all and a warm welcome to my blog!
Today I want to share with you a double spreat page in my new big Art Journal.
I made it for Country View Challenges to give you another inspiration for our Challenge "Hot Summer Days". Below you find some step x step tutorial to show you, how I made it.
So have fun watching it and may be you´ll find time to join in, you can win a £ 20 voucher! There are some days left!

 Here some step x step pictures:





I started with a page, on which I had brayered some left over paints from a project, I did short time ago (you will see this next month ;-) ).



I prepared the pages with some white Gesso first.




For the right summer feeling I think there must be some roses. So I took the upper layer of a napkin, tore it apart and glued the parts down.




Now I painted the white space with the same colors, I used at the beginning......





 .... followed by some stenciling with Archival Inks.

I prepared some parts for stamping with white Gesso and stamped two images from LaBlanche on top. Later I decided, I want only to use one of them and painted over the other one. Being not that happy with, I also stamped the one, I wanted to stay, later onto an extra paper to make it more visible. The stamped image I colored with Distress Inks.




Now I did some background stamping with Archival Ink in olive. The stamp is from LaBlanche too.









To get even more into this summer feeling, I wrote a poem, called "summer", on the background. Well, later it will not be very much visible, but I liked it very much. Sorry, I didn´t translate it, so, my English speaking friends, you might try to translate it with the help of "Aunt Google". ;-)
The poem I found here
  Im Sommer





Dünnbesiedelt das Land.


Trotz riesigen Feldern und Maschinen


liegen die Dörfer schläfrig


in Buchsbaumgärten; 

die Katzen trifft selten ein Steinwurf.





Im August fallen Sterne.


Im September bläst man die Jagd an.


Noch fliegt die Graugans, spaziert der Storch


durch unvergiftete Wiesen. 

Ach, die Wolken -


wie Berge fliegen sie über die Wälder. 





Wenn man hier keine Zeitung hält


ist die Welt in Ordnung.


In Pflaumenmuskesseln


spiegelt sich schön das eigne Gesicht und

feuerrot leuchten die Felder.  



(Sarah Kirsch)   




In the next step I used a brick wall stencil with Archival Ink Potting Soil....



...and some stone paste, I have for ages in my stash






Then I die cut leaves with the "spring greenery" die from Tim Holtz, grabed several of my green mists to color them and left them to dry.


Meanwhile I wrote my words with a black marker, surrounded them with a white one, cut them out and distressed the edges. To make them fit better, I colored the white background with DI spun sugar.
Then I put everything in place and glued all down.




Some final steps later (setting highlights with acrylic paint, spritzing deluted white Gesso, painting the middle of the leaves) my page was ready!

 Here are some close ups:

Zum Schluss möchte ich euch noch ein paar Eindrücke von meinem (zugegeben etwas verwilderten) kleinen Garten geben. Es war so ein wunderbarer Sommertag mit einem blitzblauen Himmel, das wollte ich euch einfach zeigen.
Last I want to show you some garden impressions of my little (I admit a little wild) garden. It was such a wonderful sunny day with a lighning blue sky, I wanted to show you.





Eine der unzähligen Blüten eines meiner Eibisch Sträucher. Ich liebe sie, sie blühen so wunderbar!

One blossom of one of my hibiscus bushes. They are blooming so wonderful!
