It's the most wonderful time of the year!

I love Christmas time and all the excitement in preparations and the traditions we have in our family so will be buried in all of that, with some exciting events thrown in too, for the rest of the month.
Thanks to a Dylusions challenge last month, set by the fabulously talented Dyan Reaveley, I am ready for December's 366 Calender Challenge ON TIME!
I know!?!
I started with black jesso and then scraped lime green paint on with an old store card. I love the vibrance of the colours (thanks Dina for this idea from your recent accident!!)  I bought the Stampotique tree stamp this year and actually don't really like it as a tree - but have discovered it created fabulous 'matrix' style backgrounds ;o)
As much of my December will be spent at Art from the Heart I had to go with using Dylusions stamps and inks to create the baubles and my own special Santa... I love it!
This was the original journal page that I did for the challenge - yes you could say I've cheated and just expanded the idea it but c'est la vie!
I cant believe I have got to the end of the year - Thank you Kate for setting me off and for your, and all you lovely people who have looked an commented along the way's, encouragement to carry on.
This has done me good ;o)
What's next?
Thanks for stopping by and for any lovely comments you may choose to leave


  1. Fabulous lovely page. I still have not found my black gesso its not with the Christmas presents. x c

  2. LOVE this!!! It is totally FAB!! You've had some very clever and creative calendar spreads and I've enjoyed being inspired by them. Next year I'll have a larger journal so hopefully I can get a bit more creative too.

  3. What a cool calendar! The background, the image...they are all amazing. The red ornaments on that background just pop.

  4. I adore the ornaments (quite original) on that incredible background. Your pages are fantastic and OH SO colorful.
