Collage Diva’s Soul Journal Prompt 12 was to stop and reflect on our gifts and that which we are grateful for. The idea was to create 24 miniature collages for the given prompts. After the collages were finished an advent calendar was created to insert each of the collages.
I have made advent calendars before – a couple of years ago I created one for our family christmas album, each little door containing christmas stickers.
But this project was different. Each collage measures 1.5″ square and was created using stamps, scrapbook papers, magazines and travel brochures. Each encompasses many faiths and was created by me to express my thoughts and feelings about each particular prompt.
The next step was to create the front of the advent calendar. Using two pieces of watercolour paper I sprayed a stencil with Ranger color wash – pesto, and then spritzed it with water. I then cut out the 24 doors and numbered them 1-24.
