Final 2014 Art Journal Entry

I have wanted to share this for a week or two.
However, now matter how hard I tried, I
just could not get a decent photo.
Having two days off work meant the chance to have another go
& after 7 shots, I think I got the one!!
This is page 18 (final one) in the 2014 Journal.
I have learned not to journal this size again!!!
Seriously I have struggled with the height of the pages.
 
 
I think it is A4 and I am going to hand make
the next one at about 6"h x 10" w so I am less
daunted by how to fill all that space up top!
I do have the front & back covers to make.
At present it is plain black.
The paper inside was only about 60LB so I
tore lots out and doubled every page up before they
were attached back to back for strength.
Hence why only 18 entries!
 
My final spread was chosen simply because I had
covered Autumn & it was December & I was seeing
more Deer in the fields than usual. I daydreamed about
seeing them in fields covered in snow - hence this page was born.
 
Very simple to create gluing dried out baby wipes and [painting
white then adding some glisten to the snow using
Tim Holtz Stickles Rock Candy and clear Wink of Stella
Memory Box Deer Trio die and for the forest effect I
used Craft Individuals trees and the stamping off technique
to achieve different shades of black.
For the sky I applied lots of water to the gesso around the tree tops
then added Autumn Skies Primary Element and dragged it right out.
