On Our Art Cafe group our monthly challenge for January is to create a new year intentions page with a list of your dreams and ideals for the forthcoming year, when I started playing with this background I had no idea this is what it would become, it just came about from playing with paints, papers and shapes as you can see from all of the pictures below.

Step 6: I added the chipboard numbers 2014, and then used a white gel pen to add highlights to the page, then finally scribbled down my 2014 intentions into the circles:
