One of my favorite products of the season are the Christmas ornaments from Basic Grey. You punch out a bunch of circles (that are already scored), glue them together, and you have these fabulous little ornaments. I put some together yesterday and got them up on our tree. So cool.
So as I was punching out the circles I was thinking…this packaging would be cool to use for something in this Christmas art journal. I put it aside and hoped that I would be able to make it work with the prompt for today. And yep, it worked.
I took photos around the house yesterday and when we went to get the tree. Uploaded them, resized to 2×2, and adhered behind the Basic Grey packaging. Added on an "e" from a KI Memories alphabet soup can + my daily tree and I was good to go. And I can’t forget the peace on earth stamp (also from Memory Box – I get my Memory Box stamps from Art House in Portland, Oregon).
There was a question in the comments yesterday about my other 2005 Christmas album. The circles I used for that book were punched out and simply adhered right onto the cardstock.
Other than playing and doing the tree thing yesterday we watched a great movie/documentary called Murderball last night. Don’t be freaked by the title – it is totally worth a watch. Hoping to watch Born Into Brothels tonight.
Gotta get back to work on classes for next weekend in Indiana. Hoping to run into some snow there.
