Just before Christmas I did manage to finish another Art Journal page spread. I used some card stock to make the parcels and an old tag with a rubber stamp for the wording. I like using text so in the background is some tissue paper with a dictionary text layout on it and then painted it with red watercolour paint.
I have quite a bit of Christmas tape and I added this to one side and the bottom section of the pages. It is a bit shiny but it does frame it a bit and I am trying to use up what I already have.
Christmas stickers and real ribbon went into making the bauble section and I sat and tied all of the parcel bows with actual tape.
I do not tend to use glitter much as it does get everywhere but a little sprinkled all over and then some iridescent sequins added a bit of sparkle in the background.
I was not really sure what to make it look like and it took two days to make it as I was trying to do other jobs in between. It turned out quite Chirstmassy and I think I should start trying to date them to look back on in the future and I have a whole year to think up of another festive idea.
But what should I do next?
I hope you have all had a good Christmas. The weather is awful here in Cornwall today so we are staying in and mooching around with books, word searches and Sophie has set up her old farm set on the living room floor.
All the best abd back tomorrow.
