It was snowing a bit when we got up this morning. My son and his girlfriend were home for a visit and we got to discussing the Christmas menu. It put me in a creative Christmas mood.
After reading Leslie's blog this week, I starting thinking about painting my own Christmas cards.
This one is painted on a purchased watercolour card onto which I glued the music for Silent Night using matte medium. Then I applied a thin layer of clear gesso and once dry, I painted the trees using Silks acrylic paint. A little sprinkle of glitter dust makes the red bulbs sparkle.
I have to apply the music to a few more cards, but in the meantime, I added the finishing touches to the chickadee. A little glitter may find itself on this one too!
