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 
Tracey xx

How i enjoy seeing your art each time you post something new. Today has been extra special because you have uploaded lots of artwork from the year and I get to see some I have not seen before. Always a delight.
May you and yours have a Happy, Blessed and Healthy New Year.
Hugs, Neet xx

I had to smile at how you chose to illustrate release. It is fantastic Tracey. That hair says a lot. And it is wonderful to see all your favorites again. They are all gorgeous. The house, the boot and the autumn moon really stand out to me, but then, they are all amazing creations. Thanks for sharing your latest page with us at AJJ. It does work perfect for Valerie's door challenge. Wishing you a happy, healthy and creative 2022. I look forward to seeing your newest pieces during the next 12 months. Hugs-Erika

It is always a joy to pop into your blog and to see all your amazing creativity and artwork. Then.... today I am seeing your favourites together in one post and this has just brought a huge smile to my face. Thank you for your support on my blog, your friendly and encouraging comments and for our blog friendship x. Here's to a Happy, Healthy and crafty 2022 Tracey x. said...

Lovely art as always.

What a great way to end the year, Tracey. You draw so well, and Release is such a beauty. It is a different, yet relevant take on Valerie's theme at Art Journal Journey. And it's beautiful, too!

I loved looking back at the various pieces you created in 2021. I am familiar with all of them, and they were some of my favorites, too. You always inspire me.

I hope you have a safe, healthy new year and a creative and inspiring 2022, dear Tracey.

Hi Tracey, I've been away from blogland for a good six months, but couldn't end the year without stopping by some of my favourite blogs, and catching up! You have some absolutely gorgeous art on this post - some I hadn't seen previously. I wish you a happy and healthy new year, and look forward to seeing more of your superb creations in 2022. Take care, Heather xx

How wonderful to see a review of your gorgeous work Tracey, it is always a joy to visit but today is even more special. Your art always inspires me, I love it all but that boot is just incredible, you make me wish I could draw!

Thank YOU for a year of amazing inspiration, you are such a talented lady and I feel so lucky to call you a friend. I look forward to another year of inspiring posts from you! Hugs, Anne xxx

Happy New Year to you. :)

Happy New Year Tracey!!! I love all of your beautiful artwork, but the Day Nine creation is beautifully haunting, I love it!!! ♥♥

Wow Tracey, what stunning pieces! No way am I going to choose a favourite, but your first lady with the windblown hair is just amazing! I hope you continue to find time to create. Take care, and have a wonderful 2022, Sue xx

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

My goodness Tracey, what an amazing collection of art! I love, love, love all these pieces! Honestly, I couldn't pick a favourite but if someone held a gun to my had and I had to pick just one it would be the last one with the red boot and the ladybird! That is so unique and striking - it really speaks to me! Best wishes for 2022 - may all your dreams come true this year! Thanks so much for your visit earlier! xx zsuzsa
