Christmas Art Journal: Day Nine

This is Day Nine and the Day of Evan's preschool program. The page on the left is the front of the bulletin from the program and the page on the left is scrapbook paper and the post card that we received about the program.  I added a little mini insert...a page out of a calendar that I received inside a crd for Christmas 2012....I tore loose all the calendars except the one for Decemeber 2011 and then cirlced the program date on the little calendar. I unhooked part of it to the take the picture so I could move it aside and you could see the page beneath it.

Here's the back of the calendar insert...I typed up the songs he sang etc. You think you are always going to remember those things,....but honestly you don't! Or you don't remember whcih year was which!  Then I added a pciture of him from that night taken by the tree!

This is the part of the art journal where things got a little dicey...things were BUSY by December 9th. Sometimes I just created the page and left a space for the picture or the journaling and then completed that later.  I think for 2012 I will create the base pages first and then during December I'll just need to add the theme, journaling etc.  This year the color scheme was all over the place and sort of chunky and messy...I used what I had, took some risks trying different things etc. It was nice!  If I do base pages I will most likely pick a color or style theme. I am considering doing Victorian because I love that art etc....might be harder to get things like the Christmas programs and stuff with Evan to fit "into" the theme but we will see. The base pages are something I am considering for my Christmas in July project.
