Christmas Art Journal Day Two

Thanks everyone for the great comments yesterday. I wanted to answer some of the questions related to the album/project.


1. that awesome tree stamp comes from a company called Memory Box
2. the sticker under the tree stamp is from 7gypsies
3. the photo on the cover was printed here at home and I layered two different transparencies from K&Company on right on top (used Magic Scraps tape for my adhesive)
4. the film reel came from Urban Arts & Crafts in Kansas City - they carry a line there called Junkyard Art that is so very cool
5. And yep, using another Heidi Swapp 9x9 album


And here is my entry for day two:


Christmasartjournal_day2


So far I seem to be working with the theme of creating something and sticking it on a white cardstock background. Created a snowflake. Painted it white. Stamped the circles. Put a rub on from Basic Grey in the middle. Journaled around the outside - talked about my dream of a white Christmas. Embossed the whole thing with Versamark and clear Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. I had forgotten how much I love embossing.


Loving this. Now heading to the grocery store.

    I'll have to try that embossing enamel, I just love that look. This also makes me want to make a few million snowflakes to hang around my house!

    Great, inspiring work. I consider myself so blessed that you are willing to share like this with all of us scrappers. Thank you.
    Quick question- did you get this heidi swapp album at scraptacular as well or do you have a great online source for these that you would be able to share? Thanks in advance.

    Wow, you've got a real circle vibe going on these days, eh? I've been obsessing about your other Christmas journal (the one with the circle punches) - love it, love it. I'm sad to say I looked at my first page of my Christmas journal this morning and decided I must take Shimelle's advice and just RIP IT OUT. Will try, try again. In the meantime, I'm loving yours.

    I love the work that you do! I am inspired! Thank you for sharing. I do have two questions -
    Do you write everything in pencil first then go over it with a pen? And what is your favorite pen?

    I hope you keep that snow you're wishin' for over on your side of town! LOL! I totally loved the rain pounding on the roof last night. What a great way to fall asleep! Stay warm and dry this weekend. (Love the snowflake!)

    when you first mentioned the "JOURNAL YOUR CHRISTMAS" thing- i couldn't quite imagine how to go about it. then you shared your entry 2 then suddenly i'm like "ugh! i wish i'm doing it too" however, this is something really neat and would be still cool to do even next year. great post, Miss Ali. thanks for sharing. you rock;-)

    Ahck! Thanks so much for the Memory Box link! I've been searching for it for days. I love Dave--such a cool guy, and such stylin' art work. I'm using the dove/peace stamp for Christmas cards and was looking for some examples. Thanks again--made my day.
