Art Playground September challenge

Hello my dear blog readers,

oh blessed mistake!!...

is the new challenge theme on the blog from Art Playground.

Here is the link to the blog from APG: artplaygroundblog.

We also have a beautiful mood board to create with....

Image may contain: flower

But first my interpretation of the theme "oh blessed mistake"

Unfortunately mistakes in our art have a bad reputation. We want to be perfect,

we want to be flawless, flawless in our art.

Mistakes are badly accepted by us. Mistakes make us uncertain.

I think that`s wrong. More precisely: the mistakes make our art to our art.

I think mistakes can show that they are beautiful, gorgeous and artistical.

But how can we see mistakes as art? Quite simply, we have to accept our mistakes.

So we also accept the obvious mistakes in the art of the old Masters.

For example:

Paul Cezanne "the boy in the red vest" 1889
Image result for cezanne jung mit roter weste
When you looking closely, you can see that the front arm is too long.


Johann Heinrich W. Tischbein "Goethe in the Campagna" 1787

Image result for goethe in the campagna

When you looking closely, you can see that the back leg is to long,

and he is wearing two right footed shoes.

You can find many of this mistakes in the art of the old Masters....

Go the next time with a searching look for mistakes in an art exhibitions,

 you will wonder how much you can find!! But remember, it`is not a is ART !!

Why do we accept these mistakes?  Because there are mistakes of the old Masters,

or because it is art!!...

That`s exactly what you should learn. See your mistakes as art as artistic art!!


I used for this page:

13 arts clear gesso,
Archival Ink cactus flower and deep purple,
Finnabair black gesso,
7 dots studio stickers,
Tim Holtz stamps,
Jane Davenport washi tape,
Unity stamp company stamps,
Scrap FX Australia stencil,
Glimmer Mist fully purple Tattered Angels.
12 inch x 12 inch white cardstock paper.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

I am always thankful for your visit.

Have a beautiful day.

Art Journal Journey challenge inspiration..

Hello my dear blog readers,

 I enjoy working in my art journal.

About 10 years ago I held my very first art journal in my hands.

Since then, a few books have been flilled with the years.

One book is for my watercolor journaling, one book for my vintage photos with urban painting,

one book in a whimsical style, one book for stamp and stencil work and

now my new book for collage combined with stamps and black /white photos.

My inspiration came from the august challenge by art journal journey, with the theme :

count your blessings...

Here is the link to the challenge blog:


Where I am blessed for...

first and foremost, I am blessed for my husband J├Ârgen,

whenever I see him, he does not just let the butterflies in my belly flutter

no, I would actually like to jump in the air with happiness.

What I do for over 33 years now. He has not only given me four adorable children,

but he allows me a life like I never dared to dream.

The butterflies stands for a lightness life.

The hibiscus flower stands for staying power.

The yellow moon stands for tenderness and understanding the everyday life.

The jumping women photo stands for my feelings for my husband.

The number four stands for our children.

The circle stands for the infinitity of love.

That all means count your blessings to me...

I used:
13 arts clear gesso, Archival Ink, ScrapFX stamp, 7 dots studio stickers,

Prima gesso, Prima acrylic color, Decoupage glue, Decoupage-paper,

This art journal page was my first try in the collage techniek.
I stamped all images on white tissue paper than I colored and glued on
my art journal. The little fox is from 13 arts and that black and white photo from a 
children fashion magazine. My colors are from Finnabair. The stickers are from 7 Dots Studio.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Have a beautiful day and have fun with creating  new memories xoxo Heike

Be Authentic"

In the beginning from my scrap booking time I threw away many layouts because I was not happy with the result.
Today I no, that was not right....I did not accept my mistakes...
If you want to be authentic in your art, you have to show the greatness to accept your mistakes.
Only through self-re flexion can on be abel to consciously experience and influence the creative process.
Only then can you become authentic in your art!
Authenticity starts in the heart!!
At some point I was ready to accept my mistakes...and that was the start to grow in my art,
to grow to be authentic.

I created a new site in my vintage art journal.

I used for this page:
Prima black gesso and acrylic color.
Galeria white gesso.
Archival ink watering can and aquamarine.
