12 Journals of 2016 in 2017!

Hi Everyone and a Happy New Year to you and yours!

I would like to thank you all for the support and kind words you have given me in 2016 and I hope you will join me for another year full of creative possibilities.  January will see me catch up with and finish my 12 Journals of 2016 series inspired by Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016.

I have had such fun making my journal pages rather than tags this year and that has inspired me to go solo in 2017 which is just as well as Tim started the year by retiring his 12 Tags series after 10 years of fun and inspiration.  I had so many people ask me to carry on in 2017 that I am happy to say I will!….but more of that later as I finish of my 2016 Journal.

So with clearing the decks in mind here is my August page:

I really like how this one turned out and there is very little ink in sight which is highly unusual!

I will be journalling about how I spent most of August this year up cycling furniture in one form or another and this is the sofa I recovered for Callum.  I will get to the journalling as soon as I find my white pen which seems to have gone walk-about!

This was Tim's August tag and I think you can see I did my version of his Frameworks Technique and I chose to feature stitching rather than the Brayered Stains technique.  I used stitching to add the stems to my pretty daisy stamps from the DaVinchi set of stamps from Rubber Dance.

Here is the video which I hope inspires you to create pages of your own.  Watch this space for more news coming very soon about my 2017 Journal series.  I really hope you want to play along and I am just ironing out the details aiming to start in February 2017.

Wishing you all more time to spend with family and friends this year and of course more time to craft!  Thank you for popping by X
