Safari Art Journal Page

I didn't find time to join in with Mission Inspiration in 2019 so I am determined to do better in 2020.  There are no longer individual steps to follow, just a theme, a colour palette and five words of inspiration.  This month the colours were clay, amber and sunset, the words: Safari, Jungle, Explore, Journey, Wildlife and the theme 'Animals of the World'.  Here is my interpretation.

Meme Girl Art Journal Page

In keeping with my new year's resolution to join in with a few more monthly challenges, here is my offering for the January prompts over on Mixed Media Art Journey. Six prompts determined by the roll of dice: hide a secret, make a spread (2 pages), use red, add a face, meme, use something recycled.

Patchwork Wreath

The entwined floral wreath stamps are quite large, but this doesn't mean that they have to be used in their entirety.  I created a patchwork effect on this card using dies and a stencil.

WOYWW 555: Feeling Fitter

Thank you to everyone who sent good wishes last week.  I was cleared to drive last Friday and have been keeping up with the 30 minute walks on non work days and weekends.  The low salt diet is going well and I have even lost a little weight, so onwards and upwards.
I have been busy crafting as you can see, and found time yesterday for an art journal page.  I have decided as part of my new year's resolutions to take part in three of the monthly challenges that I didn't find time for last year.  So I am back with Mission Inspiration, Tag It Tuesday and Mixed Media Art Journey challenges.  I can't manage a weekly challenge (apart from meeting up with all the fabulous WOYWW deskers) but it is nice to be joining in with these groups again.
I did manage to finish the page and will be sharing the step by step on Sunday.  It may be then before I can visit as I have some projects which need to be in the post by Saturday lunchtime to work on tomorrow and Saturday morning.  Have a happy WOYWW and feel free to join us over at The Stamping Ground, where Julia has been keeping deskers in order for nearly 11 years.
