…and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful

a photo of the front of our house and one of our Christmas trees from the past were inspiration for these pages for my December art journal … along with some free images

this quote from Norman Vincent Peale really seemed to fit:

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.”

p.s. if I had used the tripod for this photo the double closeup would not have come out blurry
