This was something I've never tried before. For day 17 of Kasia's Advent Calendar, we were asked to trace a shadow of something held over our journal page. I used a piece of fir tree.
After tracing and highlighting with black india ink, I added a red heart, and red & white splatters. I also wrote a poem by Angie Weiland-Crosbie around the edge.
'And there I marvelled at the forest's trees;
my soul rooted to its deep verdant sea.
I could no more leave it,
than it could walk from me.'
I shall link up again to Yvonne's theme at Art Journal Journey.
