Hello there, it has been a while, but I have a couple of things to put up that I created before Christmas.. I have enjoyed a lovely family holiday at the beach for the week of Christmas, and now I am home and trying to get back into some sort of routine again..
I trust you have had a special time over Christmas too..
I just had to pop into my scrap room and grab a bit of scrap time to de-stress leading up to Christmas week.. I am sure you are all nodding in agreement!! hehe.. So I had better get them up before the end of the month.. and EEKK the end of the year too... !!
I came across THIS BLOG - OLW and the word was RELEASE and I thought I would do an art journal page, art journalling can be so freeing and it is always fun to watch the pages develop..

How beautiful!! I used the blue, the green, the pink and the purple colors.... and my pages...
closer views of the texture..lots of layers..
And just a little tip.. for the hands and dove, I printed out the images and then put some acetate on top of the image and traced it out.. there was no way I could draw on top of all the texture with all the lumps and bumps.. I used clear helmars glue to stick it down.. worked well!!
And over at SCRAP THE BOYS this month they have a fabulous sketch.. I have used some really old Kaiser papers and a photo of my son when he was 2.. (Next year he is 30.....how did that happen...??)
and some closer views first.. I have fussy cut some images from the paper and layered them up with cardboard..
And I needed a card for my Dd who turned 14 yesterday so I made one using the sketch from FEELING SKETCHY #111 which looks like..
and my card...
Thanks so much for taking a moment to drop by, I hope you have a wonderful week.. If I am able I may get another challenge done for this month, but if I dont... then....I wish you all a .......
