Hi Friends,

Hello again, I am trying to catch up a bit with the journalling events that I planned to join this month, and so last night I was able to sit down and work through some pages in my Care December journal while watching Jack Ryan on Prime.  If you haven’t heard of this event, Care December is held by the Wanderlust people, Everything Art UK, it’s a free event that anyone can join on their website.  If you haven’t heard of Jack Ryan (lol) it’s worth a watch if you liked the movie Hunt For Red October, since it’s about the same character but in TV series format.

Today’s Art . . .

About today’s pages: this is the first page in the journal so you can see the inside cover on the left hand side.  I sprayed both with Distress Oxide and then added some Infusions on top.  There is also some washi tape, and book paper behind the diecut window and some journalling about how we are full of good intentions to start off something like this but then life gets in the way.

Care December Day 1 – Good Intentions

About the journal:  This entire journal is made from handmade paper and all the negative pieces leftover from diecutting all those Christmas cards a few weeks ago.  I was using A4 paper for all the diecutting and so I was left with all of that diecutting waste, so I decided I would use it for the background of my pages.  On top of that I sprayed either Infusions, or Distress Oxide or a combination of both, so for a change the inside of my journal has a consistent look!  I am also using some old paper that I found in a drawer, it’s a book of hmm I guess like a cardmaking kit, so there are lots of elements that you are supposed to assemble into cards.  It cost me £3 years ago and I liked the wintry images, so I figured I would try and use it up in this journal and see how it went.  I also typed out all the daily prompts and printed them out and glued them to each page.

Since this page is very wintry I am also sharing it with Jo’s theme of Snowy Winter over on Art Journal Journey (link below).

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

I like that you have decided on consistency. I like those colors you chose, too.

I love the gold spots and the torn looking page edges too. They both had some fun details. What a wonderful winter page. Thanks for sharing this with us at AJJ for Jo’s challenge. And I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas too. hugs-Erika
