2021 Bakers Dozen

 Hello creative Friends 

How fast this year has flown I can hardly believe 
it's time again to reflect back on artwork of 2021. 

Starting with a page from my Care December Junk Journal, 
without those early morning 5 minute prompts from Kasia Avery 
I know I'd have not set foot in my craft space during December.. 

Words of comfort guiding the start to my day, each prompt gave 
me inspiration on how to reclaim a little piece of each day..

This unshared page I believe fits well with Valerie's Theme 

#9 Release.. Let go of things to make space for others

and a handful of my favourites from 2021

Butterflies and Blooms

Morning has broken


Oh so lovely Vintage

Inspired by Angela Anderson

I thank you for your valued friendship, 
shared time, kind words and support in blogland.

May 2022 bring good health and peace to you all. 

Stay safe and ever creative

Doorway to creativity..

Hello creative friends 

Last weekend I was gifted a new journal with 
pages made completely from recycled coffee cups.
As Valerie is December's host @ Art Journal Journey 
often sharing her love for coffee I thought I'd dedicate 
Valerie's theme and title to this new creative journal... 

With stenciled crackle paste brickwork, I've adhered a 
wooden door with decorative wreath and over door swag. 

Modelled from memories of past visits to Dublin Ireland, 
with it's rows of Georgian terraced house's and large doorways.
I wonder how many people have climbed those mossy steps and 
will continue to visit family and friends throughout the years. 

A timeless invitation of warmth, security and 
companionship from the past, present to the future. 

Which just leaves me to wish you all a very 
cosy Christmas from my house to yours..

Stay safe and creative 
Hugs Tracey xx
