Happy New Year!

Woohoo! Happy New Year to you all! I sincerely hope it's a fabulous one for you.

At More Than Words we realise that many people take a moment at the start of January to assess the past year and plan the future one, so our challenge for January is to be inspired by the word "Goals" and to add some Journaling to your project. The journaling can be typed, handwriten or take any form you like, so long as there is some form of journaling on the page.

I made an art journal page.

I used the word 'Goals' literally on this project. I love this quote and I think that way too few people pay heed to it. My kids especially don't seem to plan much so I journalled at the bottom of the page, "Dreams and wishes are fun. Pick which ones you want to see happen then plan and work hard for them.
Mum's words of wisdom #1"

I tore a page out of an old book to use as my base. I added paint, Magicals, stencilled patterns and stamps to the background. On top I use some cool trim and a few other bits and pieces before adding my quote. Of course, there has to be some messy stitching!

The sentence "It was a beautiful day" was in the text of the book page. I swiped my paint around that sentence, keeping it clear. It then picked up the colours of the Magicals, making the sentence stand out. I love this effect.

I hope you can join in the challenge this month. You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin!
