Advent Journal part 1

In my post Starting Tomorrow, I showed you how I had set up my Advent Journal.  I am doing very simple pages. I've tried a different way of photographing my pages for this post.  Let me know what you think in the comments.

November pages

I'm still keeping up with journal.  In the past I've often given up around June or July so I'm pleased I'm still going.

Valerie's theme for November was music and so I used my music washi tape to decorate the page.  I also found some scrapbook cardstock with music on for the backgound for month square.

I like having weekly to do lists as it makes me feel as though I've achieved something when I tick them off.

The theme for this month is Joy.  Valerie provided a PDF of the music and 'borrowed' her wreath artwork from the devotional PDF she also provided.

My word for 2021 was Intentional.  I haven't started investigating a word for next year yet.  Have you?

Thanks for joining me today.

More fabric collages

Last week we were back at Littleheath Barn for the next session of Textile Explorations.  Liske suggested some ideas for experimenting.  One of which was to use water soluble fabric.

They have yet to be cut down to 10cm square.  And I'm not sure what backing fabric I'm going to use.

A second suggestion was making two contrasting squares and cutting them exactly the same to mix and match the pattern.

The bottom two have had foil added.  The one on the left had glue applied through a Thermofax screen and the one on the right had little strips of bondaweb ironed on.

I tried the four samples done with water soluble fabric on different colour backgrounds

Which colour would you have chosen?   This is my choice

 And here are the other four cut to size.
