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.

Today’s Art . . .

About today’s pages: These pages are also sprayed with Distress Oxides and splattered with gold paint.  I used this frame diecut to represent the blank space which could also be my head at times lol.

Care December Day 3 – Blank Space

Day 2 and 3

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!

Oh goodness, Elle, I forgot to thank you for sharing your art from yesterday with us at Art Journal Journey using Jo’s theme. And of course, I can’t forget to do that today, either.

Blanks space would be hard for me. You did an excellent job. That card making kit will come in handy because I love the deer and the tree.

Using the frames from die cuts really creates such great texture on your spread Elle. And adds a lot of interest too. What a wonderful wintery page. Thanks for joining us at AJJ again. And once again-Merry Christmas. hugs-Erika
