I was thrilled when I saw the Week 46 prompt at Journal 52 was napkins.
I decided to start the silly season (aka Christmas) off with this spread.
Napkins are supplies I seldom consider when I'm making my art. I have no idea why not, since I have a plethora of them. An entire basket full, no less.
It could be that I have to climb on a chair to get this and all the baskets down. But I really need to start utilizing these better.
I decided on a Christmas theme, so dug out several of my Christmas holiday inspired napkins.
I make no secret that I'm not a big fan of glue stick. It doesn't stick unless you use a lot and burnish it down. Besides that, I'm completely out of my favorite glue stick, so had to dig out some that I got several years ago when school supplies were on sale.
Having said all that, there are two times I use glue sticks. One is when I adhere my handmade paper, and one is when I adhere napkins.
After I finished my assembly, I added the week number
and wrote the sentiment or, as Chelle would call it, the journal entry.
It's hard to see, but I also wrote the week number on Santa's hat, too.
The other journal entry was NOT written by me. It was in a Christmas card, and I love this gal's handwriting.
One final look, while I explain I started with a recycled file folder, then added four napkins and some words. I don't like hodge-podge willy-nilly partial images, so I used a grid pattern to lay the three napkins over the one I used as a background.
And even though these colors are driven by the season and not necessarily my favorites, I'm also linking to Moo-Mania and More for their Favorite Colors challenge.
