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:  This background is sprayed with Distress Oxide Unchartered Mariner and Salvaged Patina, and splattered with gold paint.  I also used quite a lot of washi tape, you can see it in five places,and also some book paper and a teabag.

Care December Day 4 – Grow + Heal

Care December Day 5 – Cleansing

Day 4 and 5

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 love how you used the frame and the little robins. Grow was perfect. I would have trouble with these prompts more than you are having trouble with AJA. Thanks for these great entries using Jo’s theme at AJJ.

What sweet robins and those deer make the page so majestic. They add some super pops of color on your page too. Thanks for sharing these with us at AJJ for Jo’s challenge. Hope the kitties are all doing better now. hugs-Erika
