Darcy's journal

So the Circle Journal this month saw me with Darcy's journal - eeek! I was a tad nervous about doing a page for Darcy but am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Her favourite film is Labyrinth and as luck would have it, Lily at The Octopode Factory has done a Jareth image! I used a couple of Labyrinth film posters as inspiration and came up with this...

We only have two months left but we're already planning on what our theme will be for the next one!

I also promised I'd show my calendar journal page for March - three months into the year before I gave up - not bad! try and catch up a bit with the Postcard challenge...

Not enough hours in the day!

Here are my postcards for Weeks 11 and 12 of Darcy's postcard challenge. I'm way behind but hey ho, I'll get there in my own time!

Week 11 saw us in The Netherlands. I had to go with Van Gogh - and here one of the reasons I'm so behind - I faffed around trying to decide which painting I wanted to do. I decided to just pick some detail from "Road with Cypress and Star" and, major mistake, decided to use oil paints. My postcard was dry approximately 3 weeks later...(only a slight exaggeration).

And here is Week 12 - Israel. I've gone down the religious route and drawn Solomons Seal...

That's it for tonight. My monthly calendar pages have gone by the wayside but I'll blog February and March's pages soon!
