Good bye 2014...

This has been a very strange year. So many emotions and quite a bit of struggling, from the beginning of the year and all the way to the end.

I lost my Dad in an accident in early November, and I really didn't need another reminder of how fragile this life of ours is. I don't have words to express how I feel. I just miss him so very much.

This year I took the huge step of taking some time off from my job and going back to the University. The goal is a totally new career as a teacher. I've loved it so far and I really hope that I'll still feel this way at the end of 2015.

Here's a page that I made using the mica flakes and the texture paste (white crackle) in the December Project Art kit from Cocoa Daisy. I glued down strips of fabric to my page and painted them with gesso and acrylic paint. I drew the feathers on a gray paper and cut them out.

The writing simply says: "I wish for a good year."

Monterey Bay

The December kit from Cocoa Daisy is called Monterey Bay and it's another gorgeous kit with pretty colours and fun exclusives.

I immediately fell in love with the exclusive papers that Stephanie designed, and I used both of them on this layout, made after the Dec sketch. Check out the sketch challenge on the blog!

I also love the cute acrylic houses!

For my next layout I used the fab Wonky circles stamp set.

On my third layout... with these adorable photos of Tuva and the phone... I used the yellow glitter from the Carmel add on for my background, using matte medium as my adhesive.
