Creative Every Day

So the start of the new year has been a crazy one!!  This weekend was very hectic, but now Monday has returned and so has the routine...

Here are the pics for Creative Every Day...
This is Jan. 1st.  I did a background of watercolors, used some white gesso to make a pattern and added a graphic from The Graphic's Fairy website.  Had to stop there to let everything dry.
This was how I finished it on Jan. 2nd.  Wrote down my commitments for this year...and added some color to some of the pattern.  I also Mod Podged the graphic down.

In all honesty, I'm not really happy with it, but it's because to me, it looks like a kid could have done it.
Then I remember, I have only been using some of these tecniques for a very short time, less than 2 in a way, I am a kid when it comes to this. 
The journal is to practce in and learn, so I guess it's OK.
I also do most of my painting late at night, so I might get a bit sloppy at times...
