December page done!

and calendar art girl too, pleased to finish my self-challenge for 2015 on time! 
Sharing this over at Paint Party Friday and Moo Mania and More.
Happy New Year Everyone! 

And so to my challenge for 2016...well in a recent craft storage/stash sort out I found all of these never been used canvases...

so think 2016 is the perfect to chance to use the phrase 'use them or lose them!'
Anyone else hoarding some art stuff that needs using?


  1. Gorgeous girl. Looking forward to seeing those canvases at the end of the year :-)

  2. Happy New Year Clare!
    A wonderful girl ! Good luck with all the canvases- I am looking forward to see all the art in 2016 !

  3. LOL - Great minds think alike - My mantra this year is "In a drawer or out the door!" Hope you find a good use for all those gorgeous canvases Clare. If anyone can, you can.

    Love your gorgeous girl. Look forward to seeing what you've got in store for us in 2016.

    Happy New YEar to you and yours Clare (and a special hug for lovely Flo) from The Bloo Crew

  16. Ohh what a fantastic start to the new year Clare,
    I'm hyperventilating just thinking about your canvases. I can't wait to see what you do with them
    I've got acrylic paints and pastels that I've hardly opened, so maybe I should give them an airing.
    I wish you all the best for 2016 with masses of creativity thrown in! ;D

  17. Congrats on finishing your challenge! And that's a great idea to start the new year! I have lots of those laying around too, might have to start my own challenge ;-) Have a happy and creative year!
