This is my first post since Christmas, so if you celebrate that I hope you had a wonderful time.
It seems one minute we were waiting for Christmas and in almost a blink of the eye that was over and now we await the New Year.
My last page for this year for AJJ and Sheilas wonderful theme 'Lets Celebrate' is to raise a toast and celebrate all the good things in 2017... which are too many things to list.
My page is a mix of real art and digital.
You'll see further down what this was like before I added the digital words, digital grungy bits (I created those previously) and also added further colour/marks using various digital brushes.
My page started like this using mainly water soluble crayons
Then I felt a bit more braver and added more
Celebrating the lovely food Dave cooked for us in 2017
Dave is hoping I will learn to cook myself in 2018... at long last!
(ha ha ..wonder how many years have I been saying that!)
Celebrating handmade cards
A shelf of special handmade Christmas cards.
Celebrating the little things that make me smile...
The twinkling lights and the
Steampunk tree always make me happy :)
And even my keyboard has a Steampunk sort of screen saver on it
I probably spend more time watching this than playing!
We had a lovely little hamper from my cousin and his wife in New Orleans and
the first thing I thought of was, what can I use the basket for.
And.. this is what Santa kindly left - he knows that I love arty books (thank you Santa x) and yes there are 3 different palettes, 2 of them are the 'peel off paint' sort for acrylics with one having a lid to hopefully make the paint last longer.
Hope Santa left some lovely goodies for you also :)
That's my lots for now...
So I thank you for all your visits and comments this year
which are always much appreciated
and I wish you and your family a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2018
