Mona, Mona, Mona .. how festive you look!

I had a WONDERFUL evening last night with the "journaling girls"!
We had so much fun playing with gelatos and watercolours and paints and inks.... well.... lets just say - WE HAD FUN CREATING!

I did step outside my journal for a bit last night and created this "tag - sized" Christmas Mona Lisa. You like? It's layers of paints and ink with a little bit of Perfect Pearl Mist. I LOVE IT! The Mona stamp is one of the La Blanche collage stamps. I used green painters tape to mask off the areas of the stamp I did't want to use. Love doing that! And the Christmas Tree on her head? That was one of Leanne's great ideas..... I made a triangle stencil and stamped snowflakes in it, removed the stencil and stamped outside the edges to make it look a little less perfectly triangled. How'd I do? *smile*

Hope you're having a creative day!
Be sure to pop by tomorrow -- I have a special post to share!
