Christmas Transport

Hello  my dear lovely crafty friends, Welcome back to my blog. 

A very warm good evening to you all. Hope everyone is good and staying safe. 


Welcome back to My Time To Craft Christmas Challenge and this fortnight it's my turn at the challenge. Our theme for this fortnight is Christmas Transport. 


I have created an art journal page in my A6 Watercolor journal book. 



This time I created a very simple page because I'm having lot of pain in my right hand due to some injury. First I created my background using liquid acrylic paints in 3 different colours, next I added some splashes on it using same colours. Next I took Transfer Me in Christmas theme and transfer it on my background. Very very simple page.


Hope you like it. Please do leave me feedback so that I can improve myself more.


Happy Crafting and Stay Safe
