JYC 2010: December 10

Wrapping paper is the prompt. First thing, I printed an envelope template, cut it and then covered it with a paper napkin. Then, I added the "presents" on the right and made a pocket on the back for my journaling. Then I added photos of my favorite christmas items made of paper, that is an old paperback with Dickens's Christmas Books and the current issue of Magnolia Ink magazine.

I colored the image with my copics and then highlited some details with the clear Sakura Stardust pen, I also added a tiny bow on top.

I used a bow from the pattern of the napkin in order to make the closure.

Here's the envelope open, I wanted to put a photo inside but we haven't purchased gifts so far, so I put a photo of the christmas gift I purchased for myself, I'm still waiting for it to arrive!

I like very much wrapping gifts, and this is another reason why I love christmas!
