Sunday 15 December 2019


Hello Everyone!

After a rough couple of days, the love of family, friends and Jesus have brought the light back into my life. It wasn't just the politics!

Today's theme at Kasia's Advent Calendar was Light (just right for my current situation), and Kasia showed us how to use candles to make marks to create a resist. A lovely effect, I used a Christmas scented one. I made scribbly circles, then painted over with watered down Prussian Blue acrylic. I used my finger to create a white heart, and hand-wrote my words and journaling. The blue scribbled writing was made in the white acrylic undercoat before it dried. The little red painted heart and splatters were added at the end.

Wishing you all a happy Sunday,

Alison xox

  8. Absolutely heartfelt spread, Alison. I'm glad the light brought you out of your rather dark place. This is simply awesome and I like how you used the candle for the resist. Thanks for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey, too. Yvonne's theme seems to be a favorite of yours this month and you have linked nearly twice as much as I have. You make me proud and very happy, too.
