Christmas Cards

In 2013, I decided I would make christmas cards! I'm sorry this post is coming so late, but I hope it will give you some ideas for your 2014 christmas cards!

I began by drawing christmas decorations... Colored simply with watercolor.

Those, I drew a lot! It's almost meditating to draw them. Again, colored with watercolor.

I used a Sakura white gel pen to define the contour of the drawing.

Now here... I drew on random paper, I used ink, acrylic, watercolor to create abstract pattern and texture on paper. I used a lot of pages from an old book. It was super fun to make! Then I cut out the leafs and assembled them using glue (the lines on the leafs are made with different sakura gel pens) and finally made the little dots with Tulip puff paint.

I also cut out some trees from my papers! I used scrap papers from previous projects

Here's what I did with the scrap's scraps. I made a super recycled tree! Decorated it with gold glitter glue.

The glue in question (and my favorite paint: cheap, bright colors, mostly opaque).

Sadly, I didn't take any picture from the final product! But, I can tell you that it made everyone who received one very happy! I wrote my best wishes inside and my boyfriend made different drawings for everyone! It was fun!
