    Welcome to the Art Journaling December Sing-a-long aka Monthly Muse!
    When I was in school, I took Deutsche for many years, and this song is so beautiful.

    and in English is Oh Christmas Tree....but listen to this one, and resonate with the melody and beauty of the song in the original language.

    Lets get into the tree and art journal...this means, ponder that tree that we bring in our home for Christmas or perhaps see on a daily walk, or remember as a child. It does NOT have to be Christmas...but it can!

    I am doing my example right now, but had an absolute blast perusing pinterest in preparing this months challenge:
    This is a great way to get into cutting your papers (do it digi with abandonment, and then sew them down in pure happiness)
    [​IMG]
    This one set my journaling heart on fire-envisioning your tree photos in fun crops with highlights of ornaments that speak out

    go in close to the tree and get creative:

    Remember: This does NOT have to be Christmas...but it can...

    What a wonderful and perfect Muse, Anne! I'm going to spend some time, when I get home, listening to the music - I love that version; and maybe perusing more ideas on Pinterest. This is going to be fun. Your example is gorgeous!!
