Can't see the Christmas for the Trees!

I was at Art from the Heart on Saturday for an art journaling day with Dyan Reaveley. We had a great day singing Christmas songs and being creative. Everyone made these awesome trees and we swapped them with each other and put them in our journals. I love all my trees. Can you guess which one is Dyan's? I rounded the bottom of one tree and then after sticking it in the journal I realised that this was Dyan's tree! It was pure coincidence that I cut that tree to the same design as the trees that Dyan designs! AND it was the only one I did on the page. Mad that!


I think this is my favourite journal page I have done so far. It just makes me happy looking at it.
Made with Dylusions inks, stamps and stencils


I was at Art from the Heart the week before too, (see my previous post) we made a little bird house with Marie McCarthy, some bunting with Kate Crane and some 3D stars with Dyan. I've finished my little projects and put pics on Facebook, but I thought I would get them on the blog too. So here they are, I really enjoyed my day there making these lovely little makes below.

We made these in Marie McCarthy's class 


We made this bunting with Kate Crane


We made these 3D stars with Dyan.


There is something so satisfying about making and finishing small projects like these, it's quick gratification, and you have something gorgeous to hang up and look at.

I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas? I've had an amazingly craft-tastic Christmas this year. I must've been a very good girl because I got all these!
I think I'm going to be very busy.
Oh can you see in the bottom left hand corner is an arty bag, then a little journal with "123" on the cover, and a tag next to it? Well this was made by my wonderfully imaginative friend Mell Cooper.  
And I got another little gift from the equally talented Gemma Mags.  Gemma made me a bracelet and gave me a little owl stamp too. Thank you so much Mell and Gemma. xxxxx


I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store!
