It's a wrap


The first GPP Street Team kicks off the year by introducing a series of evidence journalling, pages that record something of significance or serve as a reminder of something one may wish to recall. In the first crusade we have to document evidence of Christmas with wrapping paper and tags etc. Michelle suggests that we record the presents we gave and received. This is how my page ended up.


I made the background by tearing strips of wrapping paper, adding squares of a different, very thin Christmas paper and edging them with gold. I created a pocket using a piece of acetate that I printed on and painted with gold paint. Into it I put two tags that I made a while ago. Onto the back of one I detailed presents I gave at Christmas and on the other presents I received.
