2020 Baker's Dozen

 Hello Creative Friends, 

The last day of the year has arrived which means 
I get to repost a handful of my favourite makes of 2020. 

As many of my personal favourites I've not shared this year I'm 
breaking tradition by starting with my favourite unshared piece 
which is also my last page as Guest Host @ Art Journal Journey 

The meaning of .. words. 

This journal page bares my outstretched hand resting on a painted 
foliage paper. Every day since creating this page I have placed a 
new word or affirmation in the hand to start my day.. words help. 
Today I'm placing Thank YOU a little word with a huge heart. 

Shared with gratitude to all those that have been supportive, 
shown kindness, strength and consideration. Been an ear or 
virtual shoulder to cry on or just believed in me... 

I thank YOU all.

Now time to share and revisit a tiny piece of my 2020

This little stamperia bird has been on quite 
a journey with me this year... 

I became very addicted to making these in 2020

Dr Maya Angelou

Thank you all so much for sharing your time with me

Let's hold on to hope that 2021 will 
keep all that is precious to us safe 
and a much happier one..

Creative wishes 
Tracey xx

Hello Tracey
Let me start by saying thank you for your kind and lovely comments on my blog throughout the year and particularly most recently!
Now I am so glad I came to visit you today as with this one visit I got to enjoy so many beautiful creations of yours from the year gone past, when really I have not visited blogs at all. It just demonstrates how much I have missed.... Wow, such amazing works of art here, you are such a multi-talented artist. each piece has a story to tell and offers so much inspiration! Thank you for that and I am going to try and visit more often again in the coming year.
Wishing you the most wonderful happy and healthy new year.

These are so much fun to see. And they are certainly beautiful Tracey. Your new piece is amazing. You really made a wonderful hand! I have so much enjoyed this month and thinking about the topics I chose for art pages. That was very enlightening. Thank you also for hosting. One thing I love about AJJ is all the different styles and techniques I get to see and learn from. I hope you have a wonderful 2021 and that we get to see more art soon. Hugs-Erika

First, I want to personally thank you for hosting Art Journal Journey this month, Tracey. You have gone above and beyond, and you have given us so many fabulous journal pages in the process. Thank you again for hosting. We look forward to your returning next year, too.

Your latest entry is wonderful. You drew the most beautiful and incredible hand. I love your nails, too. I think they may be as long as mine (grin).

Your other entries are wonderful. I've seen all but one of them (Be the rainbow) and it was a joy to revisit each and every entry. It was wonderful to see so many of your incredible works in a single spot. Thanks, too, for the newest and final entry you shared with us at Art Journal Journey, too.

Have a safe, healthy, joyous, New Year, dear friend.

Hi Tracey, nice to visit other than via a workdesk on a Wednesday.
Had to pop in to say I hope you and yours have a lovely year ahead and that it is a much safer one that we are entering into.
I love your page for today, the idea behind it is beautiful and the painting is also. What a truly lovely painting of a hand and everything around it too. Thanks also for the journey through your year, some special artwork there special thanks from one of your admirers.
Hugs, Neet xx
