Brrr. Old Man Winter has arrived from the arctic. Notice the lows for the next week as shown on my phone weather. And this is in Fahrenheit. On New Year's Eve is it going to be around -24 degrees C. Glad my plans are just staying home where the woodstove should keep it toasty warm.
Today we had a new furnace installed as ours was in really bad shape. Luckily we had the woodstove to keep the house warm. It meant I needed to stay home, not only to feed the wood stove but also so someone would be here while the guys worked on setting up the furnace. The good news meant I didn't have to go out into the cold and that I had a little arty time today.
So here's a page I finished up for Sheila's challenge over at Art Journal Journey. It's still the season to celebrate and her challenge is Let's Celebrate.
And Moo Mania has started their last challenge for the year, which is Welcome Somebody/Something/The New Year.
I think this page works perfect.
I used gold paint to stencil the background, and added this Judi-kins stamped image. I stamped and painted the fireworks and stars, and then added this fun little foam letters I had picked up before Christmas.
And it was a pretty morning sunrise.
And the other day (Saturday)we had some ice and I snapped this cool photo.
Ice on the grill sheet. I think it's a cool effect.
And if I don't post before the week ends (not sure what's up-you may see me, you may not), I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year.
And thanks to all you who stop by and visited me this past year. you've made 2017 a great blogging year for me.
