Holiday Art Journal Video: All is Calm

Hi everyone! Today was our first day of snow. Flakes have been falling since since last night and the world is covered in a blanket of white. Well, my world anyway! Out come the boots, mitts and holiday decorations! 

The holiday season is the inspiration for my art journal video today. Design Memory Craft® 'Mix and Match' makes it so easy to mix mediums and choose colors. Can you guess what Christmas carol my quote is from?

Here is the finished page:
