Hello! Here is Novembers (almost finished) page for the calendar challenge over at Kates Blog.
I can't believe its the 1st of December already, where has this year gone?
I used Dylusions paints and sprays, sequin waste, chalk inks and a Tim Holtz stamp.
I drew the trees on book pages and collaged them on. I drew the Holly King and the Oak King to represent Yule.
At Yule the Holly King and the Oak King battle to rule the land. At this time the Holly King loses and reliquishes his crown to the Oak King who will rule until Summer Solstice, when they will do battle again.
After the Winter Solstice the sun climbs a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day and our ancestors celebrated the rebirth of the Sun King, who was the giver of life that warmed the frozen earth back to life.
Here are the first few pages of my JOY book (Journal our Yule) I am going for a more art journal look to my album this year.
