Prompt: Work small - create a small card or tag that can be inserted into your art journal
Technique: Use paint, markers, collage, stamps, etc. to layer – this will add depth and variety to your small pieceI collected together some cool Christmas paper and tags that that I had been gifted and want to keep, and printed off a few photos of our lovely Christmas day to finish the year.
family holiday tradition is to put up our tree and decorate the living areas of our home the first weekend in December
working small and creating layers
Paint through a small stencil, a small sticker, bits of tape, photos printed small...
layers with paper, and also with gift tags. The little star brad enables me to secure a card I want to read in the future by turning it, and reveals another lovely wee tag layered beneath
Small papers edging this stenciled area = a perfect space for words
This year it was our turn to host our extended family and it was a hot and beautiful day - we ate delicious food at tables outside, had time in the swimming pool, and there were lots of smiles and love ♥ I found the perfect words in an old Christmas card. I know not everyone is as lucky and am full of gratitude for my lovely life.
