I used a Christmas book I found in a thrift store. I deconstructed the book. I used the cardboard from the front and back covers. Covered in papers and duck tape and decorated. I punched the holes to use with rings because I wanted to be able to take apart or lay flat to work on.
Inside front cover and first page. The star is a watercolor I did in 2012. I thought it would be nice to begin the book. The front inside of the cover is Away in the Manger. It signifies why I celebrate Christmas, which is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.
This is to show how I created the signatures. I have five signatures with 7 pages each. The pages came from inside the deconstructed book. I'll alter those by painting and collaging. I'll add some pockets and other ways to save memories of this season. I'll add pictures and cards from friends.
Tis picture is just a sample of some of the other mixed media items I plan to use. It will be fun to work on this journal.
This is the book I deconstructed. I used some of the pages from the book to make my signatures.
