12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

This one is titled: 2 Turtle Doves

For day 2 I drew 2 Turtle Doves and then colored in with watercolor. This particular piece is on 5x7 watercolor paper.

12 Days of Christmas

This one is titled: A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Since the 25th is the start of the 12 Days of Christmas, so I've been told, I've been making either an ATC or regular piece of artwork and thought I would share them with you all.

This first one is an ATC I did using Acrylics. I, first, drew the image and then painted it using Acrylic paints, which is actually kind of a new thing for me.

Homemade Christmas Cards

I decided this year to make Christmas cards instead of buying a box from the store that I never seem to use all of them. So, with my daughter recovering from her surgery last week I stamped the images on watercolor paper and then we set out to color them using various types of watercolor.

This is the card my 7 yo made. After she watercolored the Santa, I used a scrapbooking door picture to make it look like Santa was behind the door.

I then adhered them to different cardstock, put them on different colored card paper, and used scrapbooking stickers to decorate. I also stamped the inside with my "Happy Holidays Season's Greetings" stamp.

I used craft glue on the Christmas trees and sprinkled with glitter to make it look like there are ornaments on them!

They turned out awesome and I thought I would just share them with the rest of you.
