Do What You Love

Hello everyone!
Today it´s time for my second project for Country View Challenges . This month´s theme was chosen by the lovely Monika and it is "Love".

I made this art journal page, that tells - do what you really love! 


I started by glueing down some pieces of old book pages and some vintage ephemera I received as a giveaway (thank you again, dear Monika =)).

When everything was dry, I started to sketch the face. I did two courses to learn how to draw/paint faces (Let´s Face It 2017 and 2018, find more about here). The courses are very informative and clear, I really enjoyed ..... but I still have to catch up with the classes.
Well, one of the artists, who teached in 2018, was Toni Burt and I was inspired by her amazing work. So I tried to create something in that mood.


I printed out some of that lovely roses I found on The Graphics Fairy, fuzzy cut them and glued them down. Then I slightly colored the face and the page with watercolors.

I stamped the sentiment, one from a PaperArtsy stamp set, with grey Ink. I didn´t want it to be too prominent, so I like how it turned out.

Under the face of my little lady I stamped this tinytiny stamp from Visible Image, it says: Be your own kind of beautiful. It is so, so tiny, that you have to know, that it is there ;-).

That´s it for today, I hope you feel inspired to participate in our challenge this month, you know, you have the chance to win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!

Thank you for you visit!
Have a wonderful week!

Happy New Year my friends!
Today a new decade has started - unbelievable!

For our new challenge at Country View Challenges the lovely Monika has chosen the theme "Love".
I made a card for my daughter, inspired by the work of the gorgeous Veerle Moreels


I used a piece of watercolor paper, applied some watered down green and brown acrylicpaint on a piece of acetate, spritzed the watercolor paper with water and pressed the acetate on top of it. This gives a really subtile and unique spreat of color. I really love this!

When everything was dry, I stamped one ring from the stampset from PaperArtsy Eclectica3, designed by Seth Apter ESA12 with watering can Archival ink and toned it down with white Gesso. I also highlighted the inside of the ring with white Gesso.

Now I applied trasparent crackle paste from Stamperia in a pretty thick layer to my surface and left it to dry over night to let the magic happen - oh, and look! It crackled so nicely!

I brushed carbon black Antiquing Cream into the cracks and took away the excess with a dump cloth. Then I used Inka Gold Greenyellow to make it fit better with the background.

The tiny heart I made with clay. I colored it with Ecoline Liquid watercolor Carmine and added some glossy glaze on top. Then I glued it into the ring.

I randomly stamped a scriptstamp from another Seth Apter PaperArtsy stamp from the ESA10 stamp set with Distress Oxide peeled paint, sprinkled some of the same Ecoline Liquid watercolor in carmine as I used for the tiny heart and shaded the crackled area and the edges with grey charcoal.

Last I stamped the sentiment from the Rubber Dance stamp set "You Rock" on tissue paper and glued it down with matte medium.

I put the card together - and ready!

Here are some close ups:




That´s it for today! I hope you like my card and feel inspired to make something love-ly for our challenge too!

Thank you for your visit!

Art Journal Page "Hope" with Shawn Petite Stencils

Hello my friends!
I want to share a new art journal page with you. I used the new Shawn Petite Christmas Berries and Evergreens stencil and the Shawn Petite Fave Words 2 stencil.


I started with the leftover pieces from my last project for the Shawn Petite Creative Team, you can find everything about it here from the vintage wallpaper 3 and shabby wood and glued them down with matte medium.

I then added Gesso and different colors. The candle with it´s candle stand I drew by myself, but you can find a lovely stencil on Shawn Petit´s shop here. I painted everything with acrylic paints.
Then I stenciled the greenery with a mix of greens and brown and set some highlights and shadows, using Gesso and paints with a paintbrush. Then I surrounded the leaves with a charcoal pencil. At last I stenciled the word Hope onto a tissue paper and adhered it with matte medium.







That´s it for today.
Now I wish you a Merry Christmas and have a wonderful time!
