Snowy Winter at Art Journal Journey

I am so delighted to be guest hosting Art Journal Journey this month with my Snowy Winter theme.

As winter is here, we’re looking for snow and snowflakes on your pages; this could be linked to a winter scene or even Christmas as it’s now December.

For my page, I started by using a Stencil Template set by Inkylicious for the moon and a Stencil Mask by Marianne Designs for the trees, and painting Seedless Grape Distress Ink like watercolour onto the page. Then I coloured the moon using the Inkylicious Stencil using the same Seedless Grape Ink and then the trees using Pine Needles Distress Ink. Next I used a Cozy Winter Sizzix Thinlits set by Tim Holtz to die cut the snowflakes, adorable bear, branch and woodpecker from some white cardstock and different colours of Tim Holtz Kraft Cardstock – Classic. I die cut some pine needles to add to the branch using a Holiday Greens Sizzix Thinlits set by Tim Holtz and then I layered everything together and stuck them onto the page. I splattered the page with white acrylic paint and to finish, I added the wording “a white Christmas appeared” which was from a Christmas Sticker Book by Tim Holtz.

I hope that you are inspired to join in the fun this month too! I’m really looking forward to visiting you and seeing all your wonderful Snowy Winter creations; please, don’t forget to take a look at the RULES.

Wishing you a very Happy December and Happy Journaling! Hugs Jo x

  1. What an adorable journal page. That bear looks very healthy, and I bet he is ready soon for a long winter’s nap. I love the moon and how you shaded it to make it pop from behind the trees. This is a really fun entry which sets the clever tone for your theme this month as you host Art Journal Journey.

    Your tree is beautifully decorated and I love that necklace you are wearing.

  2. I’m excited to have you as a host Jo, and I love this wintery theme. I am very inspired. Your first page for the month is great too. I love that you included the big old moon, and purple is an amazing color. It’s hard to get night colors just right, at least I think so. Purple is a good color for all the moonlight. And your die cuts critters are adorable. I’m glad Mr. bear has hot coco to help keep him warm. Have a super start to the new month. hugs-Erika
