My Christmas wish to you

To all my loyal readers, art friends, and followers (that includes all the Bloglovin and e-mail recipients, too),

I wish you a very merry Christmas (if you celebrate it, of course).

It's truly a celebration shared around the world

every year on December 25.

Just like the innocence and imagination

of a child, (Bleubeard, Squiggles, and) I wish you a very merry (and safe) Christmas.

All images came from various magazines.   Scraps and stamped words were left over from my Christmas cards, and a painted strip helped turn an image into a bowler hat.  I also used five pens to create the "leg warmers" and two Micron pens to write the words.  

I'm sharing this collage, created in my Coll-AH-ge TOO altered book, with Art Journal Journey, hosted this month by my dear friend Valerie, who asked for collage and journaling.  I'm also sharing this with Moo-Mania and More with their fortnightly challenge of Christmas.  Please visit these wonderful artists who meet these challenges, because they share some incredible art.

Finally, I hope your Christmas is as wonderful as you want it to be.  And thanks to all of you for supporting my art and visiting each day.

What charming pages these are! You have captured the essence of Christmas holiday at our house, and when I grew up: childish glee, putting one's feet up, and reading! :-)

That's so beautiful dear Elizabeth! Thank you so much for your continued support to Art Journal Journey and Moo Mania & More !
I wish you and Bleubeard as well as Squiggles a joyful Christmas!
We had a nice dinner yesterday and today with sunshine and really springtime temperatures I enjoy this 1. Christmas day as well.

You've created some really charming pages here E.

Hope you are having a really nice Christmastime.

Fun collage highlighting the magic innocence of Christmas. I have a feeling that was some of my bah humbug mood as well. There is no magic of Christmas around here with the kids. It's just not as much fun.
