Hi everyone. Depending where you are and when you read this post it might be December 30th or maybe even the 31st.We are really counting down the final hours of 2018, aren't we?
My last page for this month's Art Journal Journey is the last full spread in my December Journal. It looks better in the book than it photographed I think, but I am saying goodbye to a year that was a good one for me.
I started by doing a wet paint stencil just to give the hint of music in blue. Then I added a piece of printed acetate, parts of a die cut clock in some sparkling blue paper, and then some stamped images.
I want to thank both Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this fun challenge this month at AJJ.
I'm not much of a New Years Eve revealer, and although I don't know for certain, I think it's going to be a low key evening for my husband and myself. They are saying some measurable snow for part of my state for New Years Eve , and right now where I live is right on the line between snow, ice and rain, so that may be even more reason not to be out and about. How about you? Do you celebrate?
Yesterday the temperatures were milder here so my husband and myself went out on a snowy owl hunt at one of the areas where they have been spotted this winter. We didn't have any luck except for seeing lots of seagulls, but we did get out for a little beach walk with the dogs.
The wind had picked up but it was still relatively mild (for late December that is)
And I know this info probably doesn't mean much except if you're familiar with this area, but I took these photos at Salisbury Beach State Preserve down in Salisbury, Massachusetts.
There was a lot of lobster traps washed up onto the beach.
And everytime I come here there are horses. This one wasn't so sure about the waves.
But one of my dogs had plenty to smell, her favorite thing.
The husband and I had a nice afternoon out. It was good to get outside and good to get down by the ocean again for a little bit.
Enjoy what's left of 2018.
And thanks, as always, for visiting.
