Christmas Journal - Day 1

I have signed up for Shimelles "Journal Your Christmas" online class this year - I thought I might have some time to do it as I'm no longer working in retail, and I might actually enjoy Christmas this time round!

Todays prompt was to create our manifesto - must admit I wussed out and pretty much just used the text that Shimelle supplied us with! Honestly, this is such a simple page, and it must have taken me two flippin' hours to do! I am going to have to be a bit quicker about it if I am going to be doing a page a day...

Anyway, here it is. I created the notebook page in Photoshop, useing Katie Pertiet lined notebook paper, and Rhonna Farrer Christmas Brushes, then printed it off and attached to 8x8 cardstock. I then used some BG Figgy Pudding around the edges, and lots of ink! I can't help but think it needs a bit of something else, but I am going to leave it as it is for now.

Text reads - I declare my intention to Journal my Christmas! I want to write something down every day, and create a little bit whenever possible. I hope that by taking a little time every day to remember, to creat and to write I will keep my Christmas alive and well! I may meet others taking the same journey. I may share my work from time to time. I may remember just why I loved Christmas in the first place, and that may be a very magical moment indeed!

I have also created the cover for my journal, but I will post that when we do it in the class....
