Hello friends, and Happy Saturday!

I hope you have a wonderful warm weekend planned.  I’ll be thinking of you while we hibernate as our heating is on the fritz again!  I committed to joining a couple of challenges and now I feel they will be even more challenging with frozen fingers lol.  Anyway, it is what it is for now anyway and I will just have to do my best to keep up, hypothermia or not!    Here comes today’s art…

today’s art . . .

Today’s art is my Day 2 page for Art Journal Advent and my Day 2 stamp for Carve December – I love the idea of the extra challenge of combining the two things ha ha because clearly I am nuts!  If you missed Day 1 then you can find it linked at the bottom of this post.

And here’s my page for the Day 2 prompt which is MOVEMENT .  Most people seem to favour single pages but I tend to work across two pages as I like that better so again like yesterday, it’s a two page spread.  I forgot to take photos of my pages before I added stuff to them but underneath on the left side is a bit of amazon brown paper packaging, and on the right was a bit of printer paper.  I added an old multi-layered gel print to the right hand page which covered it completely, and on the left side I added some music paper, a piece of tissue and some leaves so you can still see some of the brown paper underneath.  I added my journaling in white pen in three places and then added some mark making with black stabilo and white paint pen,

For today’s stamp for the #CarveDecember2021 challenge I made this foam stamp out of pieces of foam leftover from cutting out another stamp.  I thought they kind of looking like petals so I made them into a rough flower shape but they could also be fireworks or some kind of flying creature. I thought they worked well for the movement theme of the page.  Today’s prompt for the challenge is ODD and I have an odd number of pieces on my stamp.  I stamped them using Versafine Claire teal ink.

Let me know what you think in the comments.   As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients
