Tree Art Journal - Christmas Joy Tree

Christmas in October? Actually no! *LOL* I played with this page for months doing little bits of it at a time. I followed a You Tube video by Christy Tomlinson called "Christy Tomlinson Mixed Media Collage: Dec 2012 Kit". Christy did this on a canvas and I did mine in my tree art journal. I did not try to copy hers, but used the ideas to create my own version.
The background has tissue paper glued all over it so it has a lot of texture. Stamping and painting were also added to the background. Then the tree was collaged on using different Christmas themed patterned papers. Then I doodled and glittered and stamped on the tree to "decorate" it.
This page was a lot of fun to do and very different for me.
Have fun trying something new today!!!!   :D
