Back to Blogland, Christmas Tags & Art Journaling.

Finally I've made it back, The snow is lying thick & white on the ground, the kids are off school, the kitchen is semi-complete, deadlines have been met and the Christmas shopping has at least been started !
Today I've been getting myself into gear for the forth coming 12 tags of Christmas Tag workshop, thought I perhaps ought to plan the tags lol, so here's a sneak peek at some of the ones that are done/ partially complete ...

I watched Invictus last night (film starring Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela) ... it was a very lovely and food for thought kind of a film, and the title of the film is taken from a poem by William. E Henley which the whole film revolves around, the last two lines of the poem I love very much, so I thought I would add the poem to an art journal for safe keeping. I haven't finished doodling etc yet, but this is it so far ...
