Christmas Journal 2013 - Part 1

Finally I get around to showing you the first half of my Christmas journal 2013! You've been warned that is its quite a photo heavy post, hope you get to the end!!
I've really enjoyed getting creative on this one, its more of a art journal this time around.

Pages; Cover to 15, I think they kind of explain themselves!

Hope you like them, back with the second part soon! xx

Lots of Socks

Thought it was about time we had a bit of Christmas round up so I've got a couple of things to show you that I made. The first one was a sock advent calender I made for my nephew, Dougie.
I bought some of the socks and made other using felt and Christmas material. I then added a star and a number to each one, they are then pegged onto the ribbon.
 As he's still quite young I bought a wooden alphabet puzzle in the shape of a dinosaur to put in each sock, as it was an alphabet puzzle there was only a couple of pieces left over so I put two pieces in towards the end for an extra treat! He loved the puzzle and it was nice to see a bit more of the dinosaur appear every day!
I also made a bag for it to be packed away in every year.

The second thing was a present I made for my other nephew, can you guess what his name is?!!

I decorated these lovely wooden letters with a mixed media feel using lots of paint and stamps.

Next thing to do is catch you up on is my Christmas journal, just got to edit the photos! Back soon with the first instalment! Xx

The Best Bit Of 2013....

......was definitely meeting these two little chaps! My two new nephews, Dougie and Ewan born in April and May, how lucky was I to get not one but two one after the other!
So when I made the challenge at The Studio Challenges to do a Review page of the last year, it had to be about these two! I started my page by using a old stencil I found to add the big white circles on with paint. I then layered everything on top and used one of the circles for my journalling.

We are sponsored this month by a UK based online shop Wear Crafts, they have kindly donated a great prize of 13  Basic Grey papers and some alphas to match so make sure you check it out!
Thanks for looking!
Back soon with a Christmas catch up! xx
