It's a quiet weekend here after a busy week. In some ways a little too quiet but the hubby's been under the weather. I can't say I am particularly ambitious myself either. Right now we're watching Jaws on tv and it's got me dreaming of warm summer days on the boat (with no sharks though) instead of the Christmas holidays.
So my first view today didn't photograph all that well since I was using indoor light and trying to hold open my holiday journal in one hand while snapping the photo in the other. Somehow I got a deep shadow along the inner edge on the left.
Here's a shadowless view but it cut off the top of the page, so I guess you will need to put the 2 together in your mind to get a better picture of the page.
My page is all about those cold dark winter nights.
My holiday journal is in a thick old book and I made this page by first using a tree mask and stencil along with some various green paints on a few of the book pages that are glued together. I painted the rest of the page a light washed out metallic grey, and stamped the holiday song quote many times over the sky. The moon is painted, and the Santa in his sleigh is stamped. I added some little metal stars and some white glitter snow paste. My snow paste was getting a bit dry and it didn't spread as smoothly as I hoped, but it still gives the snow effect even if it is a bit lumpy.
So I am joining into 3 challenges:
First of all I am joining up to Sheila's Let's Celebrate challenge over at Art Journal Journey.
Secondly, the latest theme at Moo Mania is Christmas.
And lastly, Try It On Tuesday we have Twinkle Twinkle.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
