Today part II of The December Journal, just a few more pages, some evidence of my own Christmas traditions, found imagery, Winter Schminter postcard and fun ideas all bound together with love (and a spiral spine of course).
A little collection of Christmas colours: red, white and green. The paper on the left (with orange Christmas ornaments) is a scrapbook paper, a gift from Sister Diane a few years ago! On top of it a few sub-pages…
Hope wrote about her new inspiring project to fill an agenda journal (art journaling can be anything!), and there I learned that “pages on pages” could be called sub-pages. I hadn’t thought about that, but I love sub-pages too! I often create them by taping one side down and letting the other three sides be loose so you can lift the sub-page and have a peek underneath!
This postcard have been moving around in my paper stash for a long time. I love how darling cute it is but haven’t found the right place for it until now. It is a Mary Engelbreit postcard with the text Winter Schminter! I could’ve sent it to someone because the back is empty, now I am keeping it for me and just sharing it here with all of you. I believe it was a gift from Theresa Smythe once. The right page is a scrapbook paper and a Moleskine writing sticker.
Collage on the left and to the right the most beautiful photo postcard from Christine Clemmensen (I won a giveaway and also received some very cool smaller postcards from her). Isn’t it beautiful? Just had to include it into this book!
Of course I had to include a print of my own saffron bun recipe card in the December Journal. I zig-zaged it to the wrapping paper using a red thread. The right page is a magazine clipping about how to take care of your bulbs to get the most beautiful Christmas hyacinths.
The left page is made from an extremely lovely gift bag in cream and gold colours, and on top is a scrapbook “thing” for wonderful moments. The right page has illustrations from old Swedish books that I have made into other things. These two images makes me think of winter: A jumping hare camouflaged in white for snow hiding (but H is for Hanna) and the reindeer herd walking in snow, a common sight in the more northern parts of Sweden along winter roads.
This is posted as Evidence pages in the art journaling crusade it’s a wrap, check out what the other crusaders are doing with wrapping papers and ephemera from Christmas! Until next time…
Big hugs to you!
