Geometric page and some cards


Todays piece is for Alison aka Craftytrog theme  'Geometric shapes' over on AJJ this month.

January appears to be flying by and as I seem to be running short of time at present, my page is a mix of a real and digital artwork. 

In my first post of the year I said I was hoping to be more organised - its taking time but I'm getting there. Having completed the main cards, I've been busy finishing off making the special occasion cards for the year and just have another two I am working on for October and then that job should be complete.
I have an A4 folder with plastic wallets for each months birthdays and my cards will go in there ready for this year. Here are just a few of the cards I have been making. 
Pretty simple cards really - but somehow they still seem to take a fair amount of time :)

Hope you're having a good start to the year.
Thanks for stopping by and 
for any comments which is always appreciated.
Will visit you a.s.a.p

Happy New Year!

Its the 2nd - so I'm a bit late..... but Happy New Year everyone - I hope it's a healthy and happy one with lots of creative fun too.
I'm starting off with a page for the lovely  Alison aka Craftytrog  who is hosting this month at  AJJ theme Geometric shapes
I used some new White Nights watercolours I'm trying out onto a gessoed page in my journal and hope the wonky squares, triangles and stars count as geometric shapes :)

I've not made a New Years resolution list as such this year as I looked at last years one and I didn't do particularly well. But other than the obvious things like trying to be healthy and fit I really want to be better organised especially with anything that has a deadline and complete those things as soon as possible. 
I also intend to start using my arty/crafty stash I have that has been just taking up space, sitting around not being used.
And I want to do more art.

 I have 23 cards made already for Christmas 2019, my Easter cards finished and most of my birthday and other cards for the year made also. Getting these done should leave more time for other things.
Wanting to use up some of my beads and jewellery stuff, I made a choker, bracelet and earrings set.


That's all for this time...
Thanks for stopping by
and I wish you a good week and 
Happy New Year
