Look Back #2

So today I have been binge watching Victoria (starring Jenna Coleman) until the hubby came home from work and I could tell he wasn't into it. Now we are watching Wonder Woman, which we saw in the theater and is REALLY a good girl power film. So as I watch I am going to post some more my favorite art for 2017.
Let's start with a few tags.

 I like to occasionally play with some steampunk themes.
 And textures.
 Or stamped textures.

And some birds.

An owl from my night journal.
 A funny turkey for Thanksgiving in drawing journal.
 Ghostly crows for Halloween.
 Never mind the carrots, but I am happy with my first attempt to draw and paint macaws.
 And this phoebe in my drawing journal.
And my Halloween tree with these cool coaster tags I made to decorate it.
 And I will wrap up today's views with a few more of my favorite pages from my Night Sky Journal, which is not finished yet.

Hope you enjoyed  this installment of my look back. One more day to show you. Man I made a lot of art this past year! 
Happy weekend!

Your tags are all fantastic, love all the different colours and textures. Great journaling, too. I am spending my recovery time watching TV and listening to talking books, but I'm looking forward to getting back to crafting soon. Enjoy your day, hugs, Valerie

What a fantastic round up of projects from this year - the tags at the start are amongst my favourites, but there are so many delights here. A great way to celebrate your arty journey through 2017. Here's to many more in 2018!

These tags and pages made me smile. Such fun creations. I love the steampunk tag with I'm not weird. I'm a limited addition. Talk about empowering. I'll have to remember to put up a Halloween tree to celebrate my favorite holiday and Ink's birthday.

Why aren't hubbies into historical dramas? They really miss some great shows. Stay warm and enjoy binge watching.

What a delightful reminder of the past year's art :)

I'm not into the Jenna Coleman show either, although I loved her in Doctor Who. I'm more into the action movies but confess I haven't seen Wonder Woman yet. So many movies to see!

LOVE Victoria and can't wait for Season Two! You were smart to revisit it. I just didn't have time but I'm sure it'll come back!
