Art Journal Pages

 Hello everyone :)
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas! We had a lovely time with the family, lots of yummy food and fun!
The only thing I hadn't done by Christmas Eve was a lot wrapping and cards for my boys :( But they didn't notice lol!

This weeks Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe challenge is to feature a quote on your project. We have a fabulous prize up for grabs from Limited Runs Digi's and as always the C4E DT have lots of gorgeous inspiration for you.
Join us HERE for this weeks challenge and inspiration.
 I have been having a play with Art Journaling over the last few months, I haven't had time to do much but am really loving it. The pages so far are heavily inspired by other talented Art  journalers (is that the right term?) many of which can be seen on my Pinterest board.

I have been filling an altered book with inspirational quotes, playing with different styles and techniques.
Hopefully I will find more time to work on Art Journaling next year as I'm loving it!!
Have a fabulous New Year, lots of luck and best wishes to you all for a wonderful 2012!!

Vintage Reindeer Card

 Hello :)
It's been another busy week here, mum and I have made 80+ Christmas cards together this week!
2 designs, lots of inking and cute Tim Holtz Diecut Reindeer!
I snagged one of the reindeer for my Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge card this week.

The challenge this week is to use the sketch above, we have a fab prize up for grabs from our kind sponsors Ladybug Crafts. One winner will win a choice of 2 fabulous Digital images from their wonderful collection.
Join us HERE for the challenge and see the gorgeous DT inspiration.

 Not only did I snag the Reindeer this week I also snaffled the papers from next weeks crop kits! Sssh don't tell anyone lol!!
The papers are Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium and soooo gorgeous! I can't wait to make the inspiration layout with these!

I stamped the reindeer's bottom with some Gold Acrylic paint and a Prima flourish stamp, hope he doesn't mind :)
We have spent today at mum's helping to put up her enormous Christmas tree, amazing how many baubles fit onto that tree! The boys soon lost interest when we stopped them throwing the fir cones at the tree lol! 
Have a fun weekend!
