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
Creative Hugs

Tracey xx

Oh Tracey, I've been following along with Alison's daily take on this project. It was so good to see your perspective on these prompts. One thing that got me was how Alison said she had trouble with the white on white and you felt just the opposite. I'm LOVING these various looks that seem to have sparked an interest by you and my other British friends. We in the States didn't seem to catch the bug quite as much. Thanks for sharing. BTW, I simply adore your tea mug. Stunning.

Apologies for my lateness. First of all, well done on being able to keep up with the daily prompts and creating such beautiful art in the process. I love them all but the Sticks and Twigs on Day 5 really caught my attention. You really captured autumn turning into winter on those pages. Beautiful work, as always. Hugs, Anne xx
