Today, since Journal 52 still has no Week 51 prompt, I'm joining Valerie the host this month at Art Journal Journey. Valerie asked for collage with journaling. I'm also joining Moo-Mania and More where the theme is Christmas. This looks fairly Christmas-y to me.
I admit it's not a lot of journaling, but it's still words on the page. So, I give you Dear Santa.
I adore the napkin Valerie sent that puts me in the Christmas spirit and uses a few leftovers from another project.
I created this spread in my Coll-AH-ge Too altered book that I started a mere two weeks ago and can't seem able to put down. That may be partly due to Art Journal Journey's prompt this month.
Materials used include part of a napkin, two stamped images/words, two strips of printer paper that were left when my printer printed an alignment page with my new ink, and a piece of (shimmer) misted book page.
