Kasia's Advent Calendar Challenge - Day Three

Hi Everyone!

Here's my art journal page for Day Three of Kasia's Advent Calendar Challenge. The prompt was 'Allow'. I'm going to allow myself not to get stressed, to enjoy the peace of Christmas, and to have time for some winter walks. 

Here's a photo I took of yesterday's sunrise. It was so beautiful!

Thanks for visiting,

Alison xx


  1. Gorgeous journal page. Love the photos, I am a great sunrise and sunset fan. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Good reminder to take time for calming activities like the winter walks during a season that can sometimes feel rushed.

  3. I need a big dose of ALLOWing myself to slow down and not make so many mistakes. This is wonderful. Is that your yard? Wherever it is, it's a beautiful place to find both beauty and peace.

  4. A beautiful page and a wonderful thought! We had a lovely sun rise this morning - it's raining now! ;-)

  5. OOOHHHHHH this is outstanding. The message along with the art is a very powerful piece of art. Well done indeed.

  6. A fabulous page and love your interpretation of the prompt-and the sunrise is beautiful

  7. Its a beautiful sunrise photo Alison. When you find the secret of having a stress free Christmas, please share it with me.
    I absolutely love the journal page you created, perfect for the word prompt you used and a great page for the theme at Art Journal Journey. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

  8. That is a great attitude. I'm trying to do the same thing myself. That is a gorgeous sunrise. That is one of the small pleasures of these dark days. Love today's piece also. Hugs-Erika

  9. Beautiful page and wow, that sunrise is amazing 😁. I bet it was wonderful to watch! Happy and creative wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  10. It's an amazing word Allow* we all need to give ourselves the gift of it a little more without guilt. I actually write allow on the back of my postcard without realising it was an upcoming prompt. You create fabulous pages Alison. Hugs Tracey xx
    P.S It really is a beautiful sunrise.

  11. a nice interesting imaginative page for the word Allow me to do the same and you I know that it fulfills itself what you want!
    Happy Advent day,

  12. Glorious sunrise - beautiful. Love what you're allowing, too... it's food for thought. Itls so easy to become anxious at this time of year. Another great page.
