altered book art

The theme of the book I had for the round robin altered book group was "Christmas Off the Beaten Path".  Due to traveling to east Tennessee to do some college tours with our 18 yr old, along with a week of one crisis after another (including, but not limited to, our neighbor next door having a major house fire) I ended up doing this one the day of the meeting.

The right page says "Winter Celebrations" and the left page has words that I circled from the text on the page, and then painted around to create "found poetry".  The words, when linked together, evoke a Solstice/Christmas mood of renewal.
