Christmas Art Journal Day 6

Christmasartjournal_day6


Playing around with ideas from yesterday and today and how much I love the twinkle of holiday lights. It is one of my very favorite things.


The journaling (printed on a transparency) says:


this is what I love.
this is what I remember.
this is what I think of.


for me, every christmas must
be filled with the twinkle of
white lights. lights that fill
my home. always in awe of the
glow.


lights of yesterday that lit my way when I would sneak out to our living room as a child.


lights of today that illuminate the darkness when I wake up in the night to check on my sleeping boy.


The painted chipboard squares are from Technique Tuesday. Paper from 7gypsies and Paper Source. Words on the bottom are cut out from this month's issue of Body & Soul (they have the best stuff in that magazine). Tab from Scrapworks. Stamp and paint from Making Memories. Rub on from Basic Grey. Jewels from Heidi Swapp.


And, you will laugh. I just noticed that I totally forgot to put the tree with the date on this page. Will add that on now.

    Love this Ali! Especially the word "twinkle" that goes right across the page. And, of course, your fabulous journaling.

    I'm picturing the tree in the lower left corner. Is that where you put it?? lol I think this is my favorite page of yours so far. It's got a lot going on, and it all works together so well. I think what I'm really drawn to tho is the color contrast (love the yellowy) and the way twinkle spans the page. very cool. And argh...I'm now 3 days behind...gotta get back on track...it's so intimidating after seeing everyone elses pages....
