This cigar box collage/assemblage, filled with vintage holiday imagery was inspired by my childhood memories of Christmas Eve. The angels were stamped and colored using pencils, mineral spirits and glitter. The wood block packages were brightly painted and speckled with acrylic paints, and foil tape was added for the decorative ribbons. Two small painted canvases allow Santa and the little girl to stand. Glitz was added to make them shine and sparkle brightly. The final touch was the mini clipboard reminder of Dec. 25, which was placed on the back wall. The outside of the box was designed to resemble a gift wrapped package, using holiday papers, ribbons and adorned with a gift tag.
