.Everything Art ~ Kasia's Advent Calendar 8~21

Hello everyone

Whilst my house guests and family settle for the evening 
I've taken the opportunity to put this post together before 
I settle down myself, it's another busy day tomorrow..

Grateful to give myself 15 creative minutes each day  
Here's day's 8 to 21 of Kasia's Advent Calendar.

Day 8 ~ Snowflakes & Doilies 
..two beautiful things.

Day 9~ Breathe 
Take time to meditate each day... 

Day 11~ Be like a Tree. 
...let that bad energy drop like a falling leaf.. 

Day 12~ The Scents 
Cinnamon & ginger infused tea leaves add 
texture and aroma to this mixed media page.

Day 12 ~ Full Moon 
On the 12th day of the 12th month @ 
12 minutes past midnight.. i'm aligned with the stars 
dot by dot..

Day 13 ~ YES
In 2020 there will be much more of this in my life.

Day 14 ~ Random words. 
Taking a random page from an old book circles words and 
blank out the rest. Chosen words: Talk, Everyone, Laughing, 
good-naturedly, Seasons, Time, Earth, Magic, the Moon & Embrace,
It's as if your own story is created. 

Day 15 ~ Light 
Using wax as a resist, I really needed more time to play..

Day 16 ~ Where are you 
In the evening you'll find me right here..

Day 17~ Shadow 
Sketching a shadow is not as easy as it sounds when you are 
holding the subject of which shadow you want to trace. 

Day 18 ~ No one is watching 

Whilst all was calm i'd love to sing my heart out in 
the snow under the glisten of a Christmas Tree.

Day 19 ~ Tie loose ends
Using string.. 

Day 20 ~ Sounds 
Gifts being unwrapped and singing Happy Birthday 
to my Hubby... Recycle that wrapping paper.

Day 21 ~ Gifts 
The best things in life cost nothing.

I'm sharing with *Art Journal Journey* 

Take care everyone
Creative Hugs

Wow, Tracey. I've been following Alison's prompts and they are SO much different from yours. I especially like Day 18 and your drawing of the houses and Christmas tree. It's over the top. You have certainly done a lot with the time you allowed yourself. These are all truly stunning and SO WELL DRAWN and colored. Thank you for this feast of the eyes featuring Yvonne's theme at Art Journal Journey, too.

Oh how I wish I could be so creative in 15 minutes, I truly am a very slow crafter! Your pages are incredible, each and every one, number 13 is a particular favourite and I hope in your case you achieve that one! Day 16 is so beautiful too, the fireplace is so pretty with the greenery and the lovely candles, it is very peaceful. Once again I am in awe of your wonderful talent Tracey. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and all the very best for 2020. xxx

Such beautiful pages! What a wonderful idea to give yourself 15 minutes each day for your art, if I told my hubby 15 minutes though he would say you mean an hour don't you when refering to art time 😉. Your pieces look amazing and as I've said before I love your colour palette choices 😁. Wishing you and yours a magical Christmastime! Hugs, Jo x
