Ring out the old….

I wanted to make one last entry for Art Journal Journey - Valerie had a great theme of Light and Darkness but I don't seem to have joined in much this time!
My page began with some old encyclopaedia pages torn up and stuck down. They had a sprinkle and spritz with a combination of Brushos and Infusions. 
I used a stencil or two and some stamps before adding the magazine pictures of some Christmas decoration houses.
I wrote out the words onto tissue paper and added them with matte gel glue.

Wishing you a wonderful New Years Eve celebration - however you choose to bring in the New Year - I'll be ringing in the new tomorrow!

Thanks for looking, Chris
