Christmas Journal Page

Howdy Crafters ~ I am starting a new adventure in crafting - an Art Journal. Something I have been wanting to do for a long time ~ now that I have TONS of scraps that need to be used - paints, inks, etc. I thought putting my art in a journal might be a nice 'left behind keepsake' for one of my grand kids.  I do Bible Journaling as well.

NOTE: I have checked the challenges and as far as I know an art journal entry is acceptable. If not acceptable for your challenge,  I am good with that decision. Please feel free to delete my entry. I will make note of that for future challenges ~Thank you for offering the challenges.

So, here is my first art journal page - thanks for dropping by and have a blessed week. ~ Gail ~
