Pick A Stick Challenge - On Facebook

Morning all, something new to tell you about and share today. Last week I was invited by an online friend, Peg Adkins Robinson, to join a new, Art Journaling Challenge Group she is part of. 
The Pick A Stick Challenge on Facebook. Its a great idea.

Every month during 2016, ten sticks will be drawn at random, from a large pot of Lolly Sticks!
Each one has a message / instruction written on it, informing you of the style, media, technique to use, for that month's challenge. 
The only other stipulation is that you layer your page in the order that the sticks are drawn ... This is not as easy as it sounds! But such good fun... this is my January Journal page.  BTW you have almost a month to complete your challenge page!   

Join us on Facebook to see the 'titles' of the steps I've created here.
Its all stress free. I've used a little artistic license with some of them, whilst obeying the rules as much as possible, of course!
