Wanderlust 2016 in this little (5 x 7") Vintage Vanity Art Journal and will admit I don't like it any better than the first time I worked in it. But I'm going to persevere! I should get to grips with working small. I do have another problem with the journal though; some material such as inks leak through to the next page. I only primed these pages with matte medium while glueing on the vintage text you can just see in the background. That didn't prove enough and in future all pages will be gessoed before I start!

I added the words We only have Moments in a grungy way and stamped on the words Time Flies several times as shown. They come from a rubber stamp designed by Rebekka Erickson for StampWorld.
It's unlikely that I will do spreads for every fortnightly prompt from Wanderlust but at the moment there is time (oh yes!) as I'm sort of hibernating. It's yet again very icy out there and although I could certainly make my way out of the lane should it be necessary, there is no need to do so unless I want to, so instead I'm hiding away cosily in the studio, stitching away and doing my online classes. Rain is forecast later on and perhaps all the snow and ice will have vanished by tomorrow. I love the winter months for the increase in productivity they bring and yet on the other hand I long for spring! If only for more light. And of course, the sun!!
