Art Journal Journey - Words and Numbers

Happy December Everyone!

Here is my art journal calendar for December, with lots of words and numbers, so it's perfect for Yvonne's challenge at Art Journal Journey.

I started with a collage background of old book page scraps, a receipt, and I think there is part of a magazine too.

I used some red paint with a Carabelle Studio number stencil. I stamped December with a PaperArtsy alphabet stamp set, and stencilled 2019 with the Carabelle numbers stencil, then outlined with a black pen.

For the holly shapes, I stamped the holly (from an Artemio stamp set), cut out the larger holly to make a stencil, then stencilled with green paint. I added black outlines and red paint berries. I also stamped the holly sprig in each corner.

I hand-wrote the day numbers, and finished with white paint pen splatters.

Wishing you a great new week,
