Second Festive Art Journal Page

This is the second of my four 'Festive' pages for Art Journal Prompts for the month of December (week 50).  I only have two more pages to work on before I complete my first ever art journal, based on a weekly prompt for a whole year!

Tag: Christmas Memories

The challenge on Tag Tuesday for the rest of 2017 is Christmas Memories.  I can vividly remember Boxing Day walks on Cannock Chase with the family every year as a child, so my tag reflects this.

WOYWW 445: Snow Day!

Alas, I have only my side of the desk to show you today.  Eva and I had an extra day to craft on Monday as both the schools we work at were shut.  However the amount of snow and ice also means that she cannot get her car out of her street at the moment and therefore we couldn't take advantage of crafting together, nor could she visit me yesterday.  I hope she is able to get to work today!  I'm also hoping things will be a lot safer by tomorrow when I have to be back at work.
I am working on some projects with my Royal-Talens art supplies, including my Ecoline pens, in between other projects.  I can't say more at the moment, but all will be revealed early in the new year.  I'll keep things short and sweet so you can visit the rest of the desk links via Julia: the Gatekeeper of Desks.  Hope everyone stays safe and warm!  Wow! Only one more WOYWW to Christmas.

Masterboard Journal Page

Usually when I create a master board it is then cut into smaller pieces and used for different projects.  This master board was created for the 4th Explore Your Creativity Challenge with Junk Journal Junkies and Mindful Art and was used instead to create an art journal page.  The technique to use was create a master board, the product was paint and the colour, yellow.

Masculine Birthday Card

This card was made for my brother-in-law who celebrated his birthday yesterday.  He is a keen sailor, so the Adjust the Sails stamp set from Claritystamp was perfect for the occasion.

Opposites: Day and Night

Having made the first of my Festive pages last week for Art Journal Prompts, I decided to go back and complete the previous prompt: Opposites.  This brings me nearly up to date.  Once I have completed the last three festive pages, I will have completed all 52 prompts for 2017.

Sparkle Tag

This tag was created for the December challenge on Tag It Tuesday: Sparkle.  It is in honour of the snow (or rather lack thereof) which kept school open yesterday!
