My view through the waterfall is getting larger as the leaves drop, leaving just the coniferous yew tree in leaf,
I took a break from my Christmas card making to make a new art journal page. We are approaching the end of the year long dictionary challenge over at the Craft Barn and for this fortnight the letter is I. There are also some other fun challenges I wanted to enter.
For the letter I ...I chose I...yes I as in me!
I also wanted to make something Christmassy in my Art Journal so I thought I would make a Moment of how I have always loved Christmas time and how much I did, and still do ;0) believe in Father Christmas. I can still remember standing by my bedroom window of our old draughty Edwardian house on Christmas Eve listening for the sleigh bells and knowing that Santa was on his way. I really did hear them in my child's mind.
I masked out a moon
I then stamped some Visible Image Snowflakes using white acrylic paint.
and a couple of close ups
Even as an adult I still listen out for those sleigh bells on Christmas Eve...don't you?
