Going round in circles

We all have days I'm sure  where it seems as though your just chasing your tail & keep running round in circles.
Today this is how I feel & as you can see this is reflected in my journal page.
I've used book pages for my back ground & used white Gesso through a brick stencil .
The die cut arrows have been cut using the sizzix die .
For colour I've used Gelatos & acrylic paint s.

Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday 398

Good morning everyone , hope you are all well out there in blog land.
It's been a while since I last join in with woyww & if anyone would like to find out more have a look here
I've gone back to doing a little cross stitching .
I got a pattern from Pinterest for a Christmas tree & saw that some one had used beads on their tree which gives more dimension & makes it look very pretty . 
I know a lot will think Christmas again already but I also plan to make a lot more Christmas cards this year to get through some of my stash.

Winter Snow Flake Journal Page

Like many others across the country we had snow this morning .
Its to cold to be outside today so I thought I'd  get a page done in my journal & used the snow falling as my inspiration
The snow flakes on my page were made using white Gesso through a stencil. I've also used the same stencil on my back ground using acrylic paints.
The words I cut using a Tim Holts die & added a die cut which is also another Tim Holtzs die.

January Postcard Swap

Ukstampers postcard swap for January has an open theme so anything thing goes.
Here is my entry for this swap.
My base card was covered using Paperartsy 's acrylic paints , Smurf, Very Berry, Pansy , & Guacamole , which were applied using a baby wipe to help blend the colours together.
On a separate piece of card I used very berry & guacamole then stamped my flowers images over that once dried along with the quote stamp which are all from the same stamp set from Paperartsy.
Then cut out & stuck down.
I've used a white Poca pen to edge the flowers & the postcard.  
The leaves are a Dylusions stamp & painted with Guacamole .

New Year Tags

January's tag swap on  UkScrappers  ( ) has a theme of
New , New Year, Or New Technique .
I've gone with the theme New Year for my tags.
To start my tags I used black card & with stamps from paperartys & tim holtzs I stamped using Brilliance Galaxy & Versa Magic Cloud White.
The wooden star I used a little grey ink then over this I used a little glitter glue to add some sparkle.
With my Poca pens white & gold I went round the edge of the card to make a boarder.
