Diary Day...... Peace on Earth

I have really struggled to get a good photo of this coming weeks diary page.

I used gesso to cover the background colours, with a sprinkle of brusho powder.
 A stamped image today  that I think sends its own message without needing  many more additions.
 I finished the page with   some stencils   using modeling paste for texture.

This page will also  fit  the current
Art Journal Journey theme
set by Bleubeard on Elizabeth this month.
Tis the Season or My Favourite season,......... so I will pop over and link it there.

It is the season when we  celebrate the birth of the infant Jesus.
A time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

I hope you all have a lovely peaceful and happy day.

  2. I love the stamped image and how it works on that magical background. It's a beautiful page. You must be thrilled with your journal this year and having such a great book to look back on. Happy weekend. Or almost-Hugs-Erik

  3. Beautiful images and a wonderful page. It's dark and dismal here, too today. Thanks for the gorgeous cards, I just opened them, so beautiful. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  4. Beautiful pages! You have captured the true meaning of Christmas which I love 😁. The stamped image is lovely and the snowflakes edging it give it a wintery feel too - perfect! Wishing you a happy and peaceful day too! J 😊 x

  5. I always love Diary Day. This is a stunning Christmas page. It speaks volumes and the wish for peace on earth. The background is beautiful and you do wonders with stencils and texture paste. I love it. It's also a wonderful and welcome addition to my theme at Art Journal Journey, too, dear friend.

  6. A fabulous page with nativity scene. The background with the gesso, textures and powders has worked beautifully. Only 3more sleeps xxx

  7. Just a beautiful and indeed peaceful wintry scene Yvonne, really gorgeous! And the message is just what we all need at this time of the year! I have enjoyed all of your diary pages this year, and they have inspired me to purchase my own, which just arrived a few days ago....

    (I have probably missed quite a few of your posts, but I have decided I will only post on Fridays and visit on Sundays from now on, as, though I love seeing all the work that people create, I find blogger to be a too time consuming platform these days, sorry about that, I hope you understand)….
    Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for a creative and hopefully healthy 2019!

  8. Hi Yvonne. Just wanted to drop in and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Have a wonderful holiday and I'll see you in 2019! hugs

  9. Very pretty, Yvonne. Lovely texture. I think you did a great job snapping it. I know sometimes it's hard and takes a ton of shots, then I think I have the bigger problem choosing, lol. Merry Christmas!!! xoxo

  10. A beautiful page Yvonne! Hugs, Chrisx

  11. I'm back on catching up with the blog posts duty.....I do very much like this one in your Dylusions diary!
