I'm determined to enjoy every tiny bit of this holiday month - despite snow and cold weather. To start off I wanted to make a Christmas card - having already made and sent out my Chanukah cards. I worked on the card last night and then took both of my Chanukah drawings and the Christmas one to post here. Before I wax philosophical - here are the drawings.
The first one is small - only 8 x 10 and I love it and have used it for my Chanukah cards.
This second one is a variation on the theme, but is larger - maybe 18x24 - I have to photograph it - can't use my scanner so the picture isn't as good. I like it, but I'm fonder of the first one.
Yesterday I did this one for a Christmas card - trying to get the 12 days of Christmas onto one 15 x 10 sheet of paper. I like parts of it but it's too busy, and the layout is not what I'm comfortable with.
I'd be interested in opinions! I think you can embiggen them. When I put them all side by side last night I immediately saw that my interpretation of Christmas is rather hectic and jumbled, and my interpretation of Chanukah is calmer and less hectic. Do you agree? It could also be that 12 days is a lot to get on one sheet of paper, perhaps if I'd used a larger sheet I could have had a smoother layout.
I do like the French hens on day 3, and am fond of the pipers boots.
Anyway - Happy Month of December!
Update: I redid the Busy Christmas one today - it made me nervous - so here is the update - still a Work in Progress but I like it better - you?
