Tis the Season Day 6


Once again Leigh is hosting a "stay crafty @ home" Blog Hop to help keep our spirits high, creatively inspired and busy while celebrating the season safe at home during this terrible pandemic!
This is a 2 month long hop to celebrate Fall/Autumn, Winter, Christmas and Craftmas and the hop ends December 20 at 11:55pm pacific!  

Join in as little or as often as you like...

For more details go to

I will be sharing today's seasonal make on Leigh's info page...


Today I have a journal page to share. I watched a workshop with Tracy Weinzapfel and then used my shimmery watercolours to do the first layer. I then added doodling with Micron pens. The circles in the background were made by stamping archival ink and a pen top. Finally I added shading with a black pencil crayon and black soot Distress Oxide.

Not sure if you can see the gold shimmer...

Happy Hopping!
