Creative Every Day Challenge

Good morning! It's Thursday already, and we are enjoying some very unseasonable and mild weather, almost like spring. This really is something wonderful in November, and it should stay with us for another few days. So I hope to go for a walk along the Rhine later.
I was out most of the day with my friend, so it was nice to settle down to some crafting when I got back home. But I do need a better light in my kitchen; the nights are drawing in now, so I will have to arrange something that's good to paint and craft by. That will be my next priority. I made another spread for my journal, using a blended paper background, gesso and some black and white elements. It was fun to make, but for tomorrow I will make something with colour again; I feel that I need it just now. I am linking again to the Art Every Day challenge




Hope you all have a good day. Take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!

  13. Hi Valerie. You sound good and happy. I loved what you said about, "The nights are drawing in now." I like the way that sounds. You mean it's getting darker earlier, right? That's what I took it to mean, but I love it and your work as usual. Thanks for sharing. Have a great rest of the week, take care.

  15. You're so good at checking in on my posts and leaving comments - they are SO appreciated. It's nice to know someone out there is at least seeing what you're putting out, right? Although I might not comment every day, I do look at your posts a few times a week and catch up.

    These journal pages are great - perfect quote and new to me (I may just borrow it....) - love the backgrounds peeking through.

    Stay creative!
