{My Favorite Things}

“Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens...”

Every Christmas we hear a song called “My Favorite Things”, which was originally heard in The Sound of Music in 1965. For Art Journal Fridays Holiday Edition, I’d like to use this song as inspiration.

What are your favorite things about Christmas? They can be obscure or obvious...think for a while about this one...maybe it’s the music, the excitement in your children’s eyes, the colors of the season, memories of Christmas past...you get the picture. Find images or art representative of these things or doodle, paint, etc., and journal your favorite things onto your page. Make it your own and have fun with it! Christmas comes but once a year...

I hope to post my page beginning of next week...I’m in the middle of designing a book called Modern Mark Making by Lisa Engelbrecht...real busy!

Have a great weekend!
