Hello Everyone. I hope the new year will bring you peace and happiness and that our friendships will continue to grow through our blogs, Thank you to everyone who has visited Jumbled Crafts and for the warmth I feel from the comments. My daughter and son-in-law should have been arriving yesterday but the floods and gales in Cumbria and in Yorkshire have meant that part of the route from them to us wasn't passable and is due to get even worse over the next few days. Good news that my MIL is now home and that Vic's sister is up here from London to stay with her for a while.
For my first project this year I am honoured to have been asked by Susi and Valerie to host their January challenge at Art Journal Journey. I was host there in March 2015 so this is an extra special treat for me. I never would have even started to do journaling at all if it hadn't been for their encouragement and now it is one of my favourite types of crafting.
The theme I have chosen is Winter Wonderland and I am sure I will be doing lots of snow scenes to make up for the lack of real snow nowadays in the UK
The background is painted with acrylics and some texture added with stencils and Modge Podge. The image is a stamp I have had a while with no makers name on it. I added some silk leaves and glittered them and some snowflake die cuts.
I hope you will join in with us and I look forward to visiting all the blogs of the people that enter and seeing your wonderful ideas.
Have a amazing day
Love Chrissie xx
