Happy Friday Everyone! I have wanted it to be Friday all week so I am really glad it is here.
So today I have another journal spread which will become my blog header in January. Last week I showed you a similar piece for December and Giggles suggested it would make a great blog header. (Thanks for that great idea Giggles!) Well I made it into a blog header and that got me thinking. Wouldn't it be cool to make a spread for each month of the year and have a whole set of blog headers ready for 2016?
Anyhow, I started and here's January.
I painted the background in blues and purples since they are such cold colors, I also made the brush strokes wavy like the wind might act when blowing. I used a snowflake sparkle paste and a stencil to make the snowflakes. I doodled and painted the stars, and then added a bunch of ephemera including that cute little thermometer. Finally I sprayed some white ink and some sparkle clear paint on the snowflake side to give it a little more snowy look.
I am linking this page to both Paint Party Friday (thank you Eva and Kristen for hosting!!!) and also to Art Journal Journey (thank you to Valerie for hosting).
We've been warm for December and yesterday after some light rain we had some cool fog. This is the Ela River as I pass it on my way home.
Hope everyone has something fun planned for their weekend.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
