painting weekend

This easter weekend I painted two lessons of the Wanderlust 2017 class. The first one is a little mermaid, it is in a large old book 22x29 cm, acryl paint.
I didn't get the photo good enough, I am sorry, the colors are much better in real. This was on saturday and sunday.

Today monday I did the lesson of week 14 from Jessica Sporn.
This is on watercolor paper 20x25 cm. Acryl paint and paper pieces.
I call it "you never walk alone".

happy Easter

I wish you all a happy and peaceful Easter weekend.
I am making cards for #diypostcardswap .
I made gelliplate prints with leaves from outside which I found along the road.
After that I did some stamping and a bit scribling or drawing with watercolor pencils.
Now I have to print backsides and glue them on and wait for addresses. The deadline is April 24. If you think you like to join click on the label of iHanna in the sidebar.

altered book pages

 Those two pages are in a normal size book. I made them a while ago.

Below a book cover which I made in a workshop of AVE art school last week. We got a used old book and started with the cover to altered it.
My cover became a bit creepy. I didn't see that while working on it but realized that much later. The next day I decided to dedicate this book to all the people which I loved and have past away.
Below the cover is the double page dedicated to my grandmother which died after I got married. Unfortunately she died just a few months before I got my first baby.

Wanderlust 2017 lessons week 9 and 10 with a twist from me.
This first one has also gold glimmer mist spray what is not good to photograph. sorry.

background gelli print and stamping 18x24 cm

the art of layering 20x25 cm
This last one was fun to do. Use one shape on different materials and use a little piece of everything. I made circles on four grids.

No paint this week

This week I made a new table runner for my dining table. After the Christmas things were put in the boxes again I needed a table runner between Christmas and Easter.
It is made after the method 'disappearing nine patch'.
I made it from leftovers from earlier projects. Many different fabrics which I like together, a little bit Spring in the air ;-)
size: 140x60 cm.
 After the table runner was ready I decided that I needed some mug-rugs too which would go in colors with my nap-rug :-D
Now back to the painting table!

week2 Wanderlust class

Week two of the Wanderlust class was an adventure for me. We made many layers with papers and paint. While listening to my favorite Irish music I was happy, sad, tired and disapointed and happy again. I think I made 8 layers before I had a result I liked. Making layers was the meaning of this lesson.
Here are a few pictures from different stages and the end result.
It is on 20x25 cm ( 8x10") watercolor paper which was not thick enough but...but...
I think I will buy a bigger square canvas next week and try it again.
Do you know when you click on a photo that you can see it larger?
stage 1, 2 , 4 and 6

some art journal pages

Recently I joined a class called Wanderlust 2017 from Everything Art. It has started last week. The first lesson was making a statement for this year of Wanderlust classes.
I made a page on watercolor paper 20x25 cm.
I told myself "be brave" and enjoy this year of experiments.

And because I have all the paint and other things on my table I made a double page in my old book as well.
acryl paint,stamp, ink,papers, glimmer mist spray.

Long time

It is a long time ago I did something on this blog, too long I know. But it has been a busy summer, I was in Norway at my daughters place. She moved to an other house. Before I went to Norway and after I came home I made some collages in old book.
 I also joined ICAD 2016  from Daisy yellow.
Most of the photo's are on my Instagram ( Malinaplass) account or on facebook. It goes quick and I didn't find out to post directly to my blog from the Ipad or my phone.
Here a few of the pages I made.

glued papers and teared away

the book, ready

At least the art journal from the class "Let it Loose" is ready. The last lesson was to bind the pages into a front and back cover of cardboard. We used a simple Japanese binding. I have learned a lot and had a lot of fun using those different techniques to express yourself. Thank you Marit!
