Hello everyone.  We have had snow here again this week.  Completely sick of it and hope we do't get it for the long spell we had last time round  Really suffering now with being fed up of winter and so looking forward to the first signs of Spring arriving,

I have decided to join in with a small challenge on UKS organised by JaneH.  Its making a mini book of 2010 with a double layout for each month.  Typically I didnt notice this until recently so I'm well behind already.  Had a look at Shimelle's Document 2010 but didnt think I could gather up enough photos and bits and pieces each month to justify that.  Have decided not to buy any new stash for this one so will see if I can use up some of the every increasing stash mountain.  So far I have only made the front cover which I have put on here but it's a start.  Will try to get January and February pages done this coming week.

I have been wanting to do some art journalling for a while now but didn't really know where to sart.  I picked up a copy of this month's Craft Stamper last Saturday and Kate Crane (The Kathryn Wheel) whose blog I love had part 2 of a masterclass in Art journalling. I was so impressed with the article which was about making your pages I ordered a back copy of last months so that I could read Part one which was all about making your cover and your actual pages.  Hopefully I can make a start on that soon.   I have most of the things already apart from gel medium and watercolour paper which I got this weekend from a localish art shop.  Will post the results when I get going.  I have one or two ideas but we will see how these turn out.
