Day 7 – 7 Days of Christmas – Be a Unicorn!

For Day 7 of my 7 Days of Christmas series for 2018 I’m doubling up with a project from the Mission: Inspiration Mid Month Mini Mission over on our Facebook group (link below). The word this month is “Unicorn”. Please feel free to download the graphic below to use in all your online posts.

I first drew out a sketched version of my Unicorn head, then traced it onto black cardstock using white graphite papers from Royal Langnickel. I then went over the lines using, white, silver and gold Signo opaque rollerball pens. It’s one of the unique things about art journaling, is that it can take whatever form, shape or colour you want. Some days you want to do add lots of layers, sometimes you don’t!

Day 6 – 7 Days of Christmas 2018 – Slimline Christmas Memory Journal

In this project for Day 6 of my 7 Days of Christmas series, I wanted to make a slimline handmade Christmas themed journal to record memories and photos of our family Christmas in 2018. This is what I created.

I’ve decided to put the gallery of photos before the YouTube video this time, as I think you can better get a feel for the journal before you watch how it was put together!

I will be making another video in the coming few weeks that will have some decorating of the inside of the journal ready for our Christmas get together!

If you’d like to watch how I created this memory journal, step by step and from start to finish – click the YouTube link below.
