Hello friends, and Happy Monday!

Here’s to a great new creative week!  I have to double my posts today despite saying I wasn’t going to, but then I will have caught up with the days.  Here comes the first of today’s art…

today’s art . . .

Today’s art is my Day 5 page for Art Journal Advent and my Day 5 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 the previous days, you can find them linked at the bottom of this post in the slider.

And here’s my page for the Day 5 prompt which is RITUALS.  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.  This page is made from a few different watery gel prints I made for a challenge back in March so they fit with my idea for Rituals which is the Ritual of Bathing – my favourite ritual of all!  Sadly not much chance of that happening until the heating is fixed!  I stuck all the gel prints onto my page, and then I found this pre-stamped Lynne Perrella image which is on a piece of watercoloured paper so it was perfect for the watery theme.  I wrote my journaling on the right hand page using a white pen and then finished off the page with my little stamp.

For today’s stamp for the #CarveDecember2021 challenge I made this foam stamp out of the piece of foam left over from cutting out the seven small pieces of foam for Day 4’s stamp.  It looks a bit like Swiss cheese and I thought the pattern could be interesting.  I used Versafine Clair ink in pink to do all the stamping.

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