Everything ART ~ Kasia's Advent 1-7

Hello Creative Friends

Later than planned but as promised I'm sharing my journey
so far using prompts from Kasia's Advent Calendar 2019.

A colourway of green, flesh ochre and aubergine
i'm repurposing a Journal once created as my
calming space back in August 2018..

Here's my first week's pages.

Day 1 ~ The Postcard
Using an old postcard, scraps and colours from my palette
simple words send a message just for ME*..


Day 2 Fairy Tale
No time just now to read a book so a bookmark with a stamped modern day
image of Little Red Riding Hood is painted in the same colour palette.


Day 3 Allow
On a used envelope the word ALLOW is written in glue.
Left to dry over night paint is scrapped and smudges around it.


Day 4 ~ A Walk.
The mornings can be so dark this time of year.


Day 5 ~ Sticks & Twigs.
Mark making with gathered twigs I saw a scene in one page so drew a
window around it. The second page a found leaf is glued amongst the marks.


Day 6 ~ White on White
Something I could create all day and everyday..


Day 7 ~ Tea Time
Used Tea bag glued onto parcel paper with a quick sketch of my morning cuppa.


I've really enjoyed my first week of Kasia's Advent and
quite proud of myself for keeping up each daily...
Fingers crossed for the next week.

Happy Sunday everyone

Winter ~ Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #108

Hello Creative Friends, 


Here's what I got up to on a cold and frosty morning...

Gluing scrunched tissue onto a journal page, white gesso 
highlights the texture. Stamping Trees and Snowflakes 
into the open space adds to my Winter scene. 


Stamping the Paperbabe LEFT 3/4 View Dinky Face onto a 
separate page I gave her Micro Fringe Hair using the template and 
fashioned a Beanie Hat to keep her warm before cutting her out. 


Glued onto the mixed media background a glittery pom pom 
is added along with die cut words. As the snow glisten's 
it's as if she's "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"..


Why not treat yourself to some cosy creative time and 
come share your WINTER creations with us over HERE.. 
There's a chance to win a prize for one Lucky winner. 

Look forward to seeing your WINTER creations. 

Creative Hugs

WOYwW ? 548

Hello everyone, 

How's that Christmas prep going?? 
It's only 3 weeks you know 😛 

A very quick post from me today where I share 
What's on my work desk this Wednesday #548 

Can't show the cards or things i've been making but..


thanks to Zsuzsa last week reminding me Kasia's Advent 
was starting on the 1st, I managed to throw a few things 
in a box and find a journal i'd made with loose pages. 

This advent challenge will give me a break during the run up 
to Christmas with the lid of the box a portable work surface.
I'll probably post my progress over the weekend.. 

Like an Elf I've lots to do for others this week 
so i'll catch up with you all later. 

Creative Hugs to all 
Tracey xx
