Aino's Art Journal Challenge came at a good time for me…I needed a little art therapy, but, didn't know where to start. Aino sharing her process really helped. I also went to my Art Journal Pinterest Board for inspiration, too. I found an art print by Judy Paul called Blue Bird. My design is based on her design, although making it a Christmas theme is my idea. I think it is fun to figure out how to take a paint and paper art print and create something similar digitally. As Aino suggested, I also added a few tree doodles on a separate layer using my pen and tablet and then lowered the opacity.
