Journal Journey's Challenge 14

December! Yes it's December they say as you get older time speeds up. Well it's going at warp speed already. It doesn't seem that long ago since last Christmas but it's almost here again. Are you ready? Well I am almost there, I am pleased about that just just a couple of gifts to buy and then the wrapping up as usual then there is just food to organise and I'm done. We only have a small Christmas now, the boys are all grown up & will be round for Christmas Dinner and then I get a week with my grandson in the Christmas break usually, so always something to look forward to ;0)  December, Christmas, Holiday season what ever you call it, to me is about family children in particular and that's your challenge for December.


So anything to do with children it doesn't have to be Christmas orientated they just have to be the main focus of your art journaling this month. So let your imagination wonder, there is no limit to the mediums you can use or stamping, photographs, paint, inks. What ever you want to play with or have at hand, create something with children as the main focus. I hope you have fun in December don't get too flustered it's only one day so my tip is not to spend the earth on gifts, it's more about spending quality time with one another.

I hope you can find time to join in the challenge this December. The children are free images from the wonderful Land of Nod Debs is a generous artist and gives away images every friday. Have a wonderful Christmas, keep safe and have fun when you can. If Christmas is a difficult time I hope you will feel loved by us here at the Journal Journey's challenge. Peace, health & happiness wishes to you and yours. Love Dawn xx

Hi Dawn!

*love* your page again. I love the vintage feel of it and the stamping just makes it all the more special as does the fabric.

You have a lovely Christmas too and heres a wish for a very happy, healthy New Year for both of us.

Beautiful pages Dawn! Love your tip about Christmas too, a great philosophy, too much time is spent on unnecessary spending! xx

Your essay about Christmas is right on. Happy holidays to you and your family. My green tree is up. The background colors are lushious. Especially like the key...the key to Christmas joy is the simple sharing of our hearts, and time spent celebrating with children.
