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
