New Year New Challenge

Hi bloggers

Happy New Year!!!!
Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday, I know I did.

Do you ever feel like you're fed up with doing the same old thing?
Feeling like something is missing?
On NYE that's exactly how I was feeling so I decided it was time for me to kick myself up the backside and do something about it, I set up a new FB Group called Crafty Creative Chickadees it's just a little place where people can share their creations, get to know like minded people and maybe join in some just for fun challenges
(feel free to join)
I also decided this was the year I am going to actually stick to a resolution of sorts - I am going to complete a yearly journal!
On my travels of blog land and challenge blogs I came across 'Journal 52' and popped along to their Facebook Group and thought it looked interesting so I asked to join in and boy am I glad I did, have met some lovely people already and the level of inspiration is unbelievable PLUS everyone is so encouraging and helpful.
The first prompt of 2016 went up on Friday the 1st - you can find all the info HERE - and I got straight to work.

Here is my first page using 'Word of the Year' Prompt
My word is 'Rebirth' and the quote fit it perfectly.
Background Papers ripped up
Freco Finish Paints
TCW Stencils
Archival Ink
Posca Pen
Sharpie paint pen
normal felt tip pen

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this but still felt inspired so I decided to do the alternative prompt 'Strange Word'
I chose 'Dactylonomy'
Gesso - Black & White
My hand
Posca Pens
Sharpie paint pen
TCW stencil

I am so proud of myself and hope am off to a great start craft wise for 2016 and look forward to what the rest of the year brings.
