And more creating...

told you I was in the mood today.

Here is what I put together for my Christmas Art Journal cover and first page. I am going to use this as a daily record of the holiday and then use the other one I already put together (with the circles) for the great photos to come...


For the first page I painted a small film reel and attached it using ribbon. Added in some Basic Grey ribbon and some KI accents. The little tree stamp in the bottom will be repeated each day as a way to unite the whole book together.

    Wow Ali, that looks amazing. I love everything you do - I just want to copy it all!!! Is the green christmas art journal album another Heidi Swapp album? I love the cover photo and that tree stamp - just gorgeous! Where did you get a mini film reel?

    I am just lovin the direction your work is going in lately - LOVE IT! I am so happy to see that scrapbooking is really taking off in to a more "altered" and...I'll say "artsy" type of style. Thank you for bringing this to people as you definitely have a great influence on many!
    Keep posting the journal - it's so awesome!
