Happy New year 2016!

Happy New Year to you all!!

Oh dear! It has been about 4 months since I was last here.  Been busy with Facfebook, Instagram and my workshops but I hope to be back here more often
I realise that i have probably lost aa lot of people as a result but sometimes you have to have a break from something to learn or develop something else.

So I have just uploaded my first Art Journal Challenge since May and the December 2015 theme was to make an Art Journal for loose pages.  I swapped this a little to work with what I tend to create, so I made this...............
I used some vintage fabric that I found at a Fair at bedruthan Hotel in October.  I used acrylic paint to highlight some of the flowers and leaves.  Added a tie and pelemt vilene to add a bit of strength.
I added a hand drawn and hand stitched label to the front.
To the inside I added a strip of elastic so that I can add sketchbooks, loose paper etc.  Not started using it yet but I will over the coming year.

Just a quick post but i do have things to post about from the Vhristmas break including a card swap with twiggy and my Santa Sacj swap partner.  
I also have some blogs to catch up with too.

So lovely to be back and I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year!

Best wishes and take care.

Nice to see you back, it's hard to get back into blogging after time away & like you say life really does get in the way. Hope you are keeping well xx

Glad your back! Taking a break is often needed to pull ahead in other areas. Happy New!
