The Meaning Of


Hello everyone, it's Tracey here and what a joy it is to be with you for the last month of this year. 
Creativity has always been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up in the city of Birmingham (UK) living in a multi storey block of flats until my teens you soon begin to appreciate the beauty of the outside world that surrounds you especially those things that are out of reach.
When I was invited to be December's host at Art Journal Journey way back in November 2019 no one could have foreseen how turbulent 2020 would be for us all. 

My theme for you during December is *THE MEANING OF..*what something means to YOU, be it the Holiday Season, family, friends or loved ones. A treasured gift, a moment in time or something you see or hear around you.. I'm sure this year we have all come to appreciate things we may have overlooked in previous times.

Don't be frightened of the title *The Meaning of*.. It's really *Anything Goes* with a fancy name and if YOU are putting something down in your journal it means everything to us all at Art Journal Journey. 

To start off *The Meaning of..* theme I present you with a page of a lone bird gazing out at the vast landscape ready to explore and spread her wings, maybe a reflection of myself in my younger days..
Let us stay connected during the season and paint 2020 away!! Stay safe & creative Tracey xx

And please, as always, don't forget to take a look at our rules.

    I wished I would have found you earlier, you would have saved me from a lot of pain for the past five years my ex lover left me for another woman in just 2 days i contacted you Dr Omokpo you brought my broken relationship back
    I spent a small fortune enough to take my dream trip to South Carolina but what’s the point in taking a dream trip without the love of my life. Dr Omokpo has given me hope and his honesty is a breath of fresh air, I feel so good and heavy happiness in my heart to get my ex lover back. Who I thought he was gone forever.
