Just my Journal going on ...it's sort of a combo of 3 Journal ideas & challenges ...
I am making a short note each day and noting the weather ... and I am using a fun Dodo diary my Mum bought me for Christmas ...
This is then combined with a small picture inspired by the week ... this idea is from the No Excuses Journaling book.
I have done a little water colour of snowdrops .. inspired by the first ones I saw flowering bravely in Lynda's garden last weekend..
This past week has been very cold with snow on Wednesday - 2 cars to scrape clear before we could get to work !!
And Saturday was solid ice - it must have snowed in the night & then frozen solid afterwards - so we had an inch & a half thick of ice to chip off again !
Half an hour to clear one car !!
I don't how you guys who live in snowy places cope day after day - the slightest snow here and everything grinds to a halt !
I used a pearlescent texture paste .. to create the Icicles - Broken China Distress Stain for the background and sparkling embossed snowflakes ...
So I decided that my Appraisal which I had last Friday at work sort of counted as a conversation !
The Documented Life challenge this week was to use Gesso.
So this page sort of came together ... a Gesso base layer, I used Gesso through a Dylusions stencil with different sized figures of a woman ... she is supposed to represent me - but is much slimmer than me !!
The words are some of the competencies that I get judged on ... it doesn't quite feel finished but it is coming along !
Well that's all folks - have a great crafty week ! Ali xx
