I was at AFTH last Sunday 22nd Dec , it was journalling for regulars and this is the page that Dyan chose for us to do.Basically we had to do a multi layered page using the Dylusions star stencil, I used the ghosting technique which is a Dyan speciallity, spraying through the stencil, embossing paste through the stencil which gives a lovely raised effect and paint through the stencil. We were then given a sheet of card and had to write about Christmas using the full page, we then chose different colours and sprayed the page using Dylusion sprays. On the reverse side we drew lots of stars through the stencil abd then cut them out we then gave one of our own stars to everyone in the class so we had a combination of our own stars and the gifted ones, brill idea these were glued on to our page, I doodled on mine, cut out some snowflakes and added a cut out tree from one of Dyan's
stencils. I had a lovely day and really, really enjoyed making this page.
I hope all my blogging friends have had a wonderful Christmas, I am enjoying a relaxing Boxing day having a good play with all my arty stuff and getting painty and messy.

OMG time really does fly I can't believe we are into December already, when you are a child time goes real slow but as an adult it's too fast. I actually had my calendar page ready on time but haven't had time to post it until today, it's my busy social life which interferes with getting things done in fact I ran out of time and did this page really quickly I'm not mad keen on it but it will have to do. I have been with Kate's challenge
from the beginning and have kept up so I am quite proud of that. I always think I will take my time and do things properly with lots of planning but............... Well here it is Christmasy if nothing else.
