I (Suzanne) do hope you all had a beautiful and festive Christmas time with your family and/or friends.
There are a few days left to look forward to a new year that hopefully will bring you lots of the things you wish for ...
I'm sharing an Art Journal page today. I often think it's not really my kind of art, although I love to watch how others master this kind of awesome creativity. I refuse being discouraged, though, and will try now and again :-) With this I wish you all a Happy New Year!!!

First the pages were covered with black gesso all over, then with white gesso at the bottom with my fingers. I find I can control the application better this way. The images were masked and stamped with jet black, the houses in front are coloured in with pencils. Over the white I added some yellow acrylic paint, also with my fingers. On the top a stencil was used to apply the 'fireworks' with interference paint.
The wooden numbers were also primed with gesso, painted with acrylic paint and covered with crackle glaze. When dry some decoart fluid acrylic quin gold was used to highlight the cracks.
Finally I applied a little chalk pastels around the edges, wrote the words with a yellow posca pen and outlined them with the sharpie pen.
Please have a look at our current challenge over on the de stempelwinkel stampers challenge blog which is 'Animals, Birds, Fish', we'd really love and appreciate you to play along.
My very best wishes to all of you!!
Hugs, Suzanne xx
