mmm…mince pies its definitely Christmas! i couldn’t throw away the patterned big they came in…so i turned it into a heart art. How? just add glitter of course! if u like this style you should search my blog for more ‘glitter’ action-these gel pens have featured on a few occasions and this is the last of them.
Feeling the full force of Christmas today. Finished the shopping, presents are wrapped and I’m ready for it…but I still don’t feel ‘Christmassy!’. Its the kind of time when you wish you were still 5 years old….well I do.
The little…erm…elf dude is drawn with poster marker on the inside cardboard tube from the used-up wrapping paper. I’ve done everything else in pshop.
I’ve been saving up our christmas card envelopes as we’ve been receiving the cards through the post and today we had an extra special one from geek Heather (and her hubby), it included a set of hello there stickers. So I used these to join the envelopes…hopefully you can see the subtle heart?
I wouldn’t describe myself as superstitious…maybe quirky…but I like to think everyone has a few little lucky charms or beliefs maybe?
One of my lucky charms is this little half santa, half dog dude. My Rick gave him to me when we first got together and has been on lots of adventures – well pockets and handbags! He currently lives under my screen…and has witnessed the 365 heart journey so far and deserves a mention or at least to be used in a heart art.
Red for Christmas, Blue for Smurfs…now don’t be silly – dogs aren’t blue!
Walking in the woods this time of year is always good for the soul…as long as you’re wrapped are warm anyway! We love it.
I think I can honestly say that it was the first time we’ve seen a rainbow in December though. I used water colour and ink for my heart art to represent the rainbow, and my natural mindless doodles for the rest…
I’m also super honoured to have 20 subscribers to my blog! How special – this is dedicated to you all, thank you for your support my lil’ rainbows! x
