Well as far as the weather in this country is concerned I am glad to see the back of it, not that I can see much improvement in the coming months, however, on a more positive note I have just completed my 3 years of Kate Cranes Art Calendar Challenge. I don't often look back at what I have done but my 2 Grand-daughters love reading the calendar. December is up to date and January is ready to go. For 2013 I have made my own calendar journal under the watchful eye of the lovely Christine whose idea it was. January's background was done using my Gelli Plate with Golden Acrylic paints. My journal squares are cut from Basic Gray paper and the images are Stampotique.
