Creative Artiste Celebrates #100 Anything Mixed Media Goes/Christmas Creations Challenge

 Welcome December Creatives 

Can you believe another year is near it's end.. with that 
I bring you the last Creative Artiste Challenge of 2023. 

As we Celebrate our #100 Challenge DT Member FIONA has kindly 
gifted a prize for the winner of Decembers #100 Challenge 
see picture below and details of how to win HERE 

Our Anything goes Mixed Media Challenge has an 
optional twist this month so come and share your 
Mixed Media creations with the Design Team 

My final Design Team Project of the 2023 is a twofer as I 
share how two journal pages come together to create one.. 

This cosy Christmas scene decked with festive die cut swags 
frames the Wintery night sky seen through the window.

Turn the page/open the window...

Created from offcuts collaged with glitter paste and a watery wash of 
Prussian blue acrylic. The moonlight shines down from the glittering 
midnight Sky on a forest of tree's amongst a flurry of snow. 
The words Peace On Earth... almost look as if 
they were carved into the snowdrift.

We @ Creative Artiste look forward to seeing your 
Come and celebrate the December with us..

Peace and Winter blessings to you all 

**Happy Christmas everyone**

Stay safe and cosy..
Creative Hugs Tracey xx

This is truly beautiful, Tracey. I love the amazing scene you have created on this wonderful card. Thank you for sharing your art with us at The Four Seasons Challenge. It's always very much appreciated. Your art is beautiful.

I would also love to have you come by and share your wonderful art with us at Word Art Wednesday any time you are able. It would be a blessing to see your lovely art there as well. Your art is so lovely, and it should be shared so that more people can see and enjoy it. I sure enjoyed seeing this, and I'd love to see more of your art. I think we all inspire each other. Right?

Have a great week and happy crafting.

This page is another one that wows me Tracy. I love how you have the view looking out of the window, and then how you can open the window. And When the you opened the window that is such a pretty winter scene. I love the white clouds floating in the light of the full moon. And you must have cut out a lot of trees. Smile. Thank you for joining Wendy's challenge at AJJ and our challenge at TIOT also. This is such a traditional holiday view. Happy December to you, and I hope you get to enjoy some holiday time. hugs-Erika

Hi Tracey, it's always a pleasure to see what you've been up to and loving the journal pages. I've been a bit occupied with life to enter many challenges but seeing these has put me in the mood to start again. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, Angela xXx

Oh my goodness this is stunning - it was before you even opened the windows but how clever is that. I love that wintery scene you've created - I can just imagine sitting at that window looking out with a glass of mulled wine. Magical. Hope you have a lovely Christmas

Wow, what a magical page! I love your twofer design, looking out the window with the candle and Christmas swags is wonderful and the view with the trees and moon is stunning too - love it 😊. Such a special page, you are such an inspiration! Thanks so much for the beautiful Christmas card too, I love how you painted the robins and I guess you know they are my favourite - perfect ❤️. Happy December and Merry Christmas to you, woof to Freya! Hugs, Jo x

Felix the Crafty Cat said...

Just wanted to say thank you for the lovely Christmas card. I manged to pick up a chesty cough somewhere along the line and have been working hard to clear it as much as possible as I don't want to spoil mum's Christmas day by not being there but don't want to pass it on either. Hope your Christmas is a happy one. Hugs, Angela xxx
