Journal page and tag

Hello All. Hope your weekend is going well. Thank you for calling in today. I have been doing a lot of sport watching as usual and the snooker final is on the list for this afternoon.

Art Journal Journey  their challenge for December was chosen by dear Valerie and her theme this time is Light and Darkness

I painted a background then scanned it and added some digital effects. Nice way to be able to use painted backgrounds often instead of just once.

Go Tag Thursday has Christmas Trees or Trees for their theme this week and also I am going to enter this at Dragon's Lair Designs where the theme for December is Christmas Wishes

 For the tree shape I folded circles and put them inside each other and the wooden one I painted and added glitter.

Hope you have a great day

Love Chrissie xx
