Calendar Art Journal January 2016

I'm getting back into my Calendar Art Journal. 
I always like looking back at what I was doing and the arty pages I made. 

It really is a bit of a snapshot of how you were feeling at the time and you can see what crafty products were influencing you.

This is the Uber talented Kate Crane's idea, she has a whole Facebook Page dedicated to it. 

She has a tutorial on her blog on how to start

Why not have a go.

I'm off to see what crafty products are in the New Year's sales :)

I went with an Icey blue theme. But it's still very warm!

Warm but windy though. I drew the blowing cloud with pencils but coloured it in with my NeoColour Crayons.

I drew trees that were being blown by the wind

The snow like media is DecoArt's Crackle Paste, which looks great when sprayed with a blue shimmer mist.

I've used Indigo Blu's gilding flakes and Flitter glue to make the lovely silvery flourishes. The stamp is a Crafty Individuals (CI -182) flourish.

I also used two stencils in the background, the blue swirls (Crafters Workshop) and the black arrows (Dylusions Arrows)

Did you spot the whether symbols that they use on the tele?
I just thought I'd draw them in too, seeing as we are having unusual weather this winter.

Tara for now xx
