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.



  1. A real honour to have been invited to Guest Host this month, thank you so much for the invite. I can think of no better way than getting creative and sharing our passion to help wave 2020 away. Stay safe everyone..

  11. Thank to Mr. Benjamin for helping me acquire my VA Mortgage loan. It was great receiving my loan of $900,000 USD from this loan lender. My name is Krasimir Todor am Belgian. I got my loan from this reputable loan lender on the 20th of November 2019 and I want to quickly use this medium to tell everyone here that you can acquire any loan from this credible loan company. A VA loan lender is not easy to come by and it must be recommended by the Department of Veteran Affairs. Mr Benjamin will give you loans at low-interest rates of 2% rate and very fast. Get your loans at Email: 247officedept@gmail.com or on Whatsapp number: + 1-989-394-3740
