Unlike last year, there's not a lot to do in the way of pre-planning for this December Daily. It will just flow from December 1st. BUT I'm really really busting to make a start of some sort. I have too many pages for the days in December, so in between the days I plan to put some random bits about Christmas like Christmas carols, recipes, childhood memories etc. With that in mind, I thought I could make a start on a Christmas carol, done on some deli paper all ready to go into my art journal.
This is how it progressed..........
I stuck down strips of masking tape to the deli paper, tearing the top part
and leaving the bottom line straight.
Next came the paint.......as I went down the page I added white to the original colour
to get it quite light at the bottom. Then splattered it all with a lime green mist.
Some masking of circles in white paint and random stamping.
Outlining parts in white pen.
Then off came the tape. I also tore along each side of the deli paper
to make it fit better on my journal's page size.
I then started printing a Christmas carol in the gaps left by the tape.........
The complete song was never going to fit on here so I just starting writing
and hoping that I could at least finish off at the end of a chorus which did happen.
This is now all done and ready to be glued into my December Daily.
I think it needs a bit of red, so when I come to it's spot in my journal
I'm planning on base coating the page in white and doing some stamping
in bright red and hopefully that red will show through the deli paper.
We'll see how it goes.
Remember to share with us your
We would love to see them.
