I did it!

Ho Ho Holy crap it's December already!!
But what that does mean is i've managed to stay on track and complete a whole year's worth of 366 Calender Challenge pages.
I may not have always been on time but I did it.. and I'm rather proud of myself lol
Here is my Dec page
I've gone with tiny little journalling squares coz I have a feeling I wont have alot of time to be filling in my calender, maybe just a 1 word for the day kinda deal.
I created the background using my gelli plate and 2 layers of paint, a base red, and then a green patina and phthalo green /stencil top.
I'd like to thank Kate for hosting this challenge and allowing me to play along. As Kate suggests at the end of this month I will share all 12 months pages in 1 post.
Till then...Stay Inky
