Hope everyone has a good holiday week!
I don't have any Christmas art on my computer. I know I've done some, but it must have been before I had a scanner. Thought this skinny book page was close enough with the green and the stars. It was done for a swap with a postage stamp theme. I've shown a few of these before. The background started with pieces from encyclopedia pages with a star tissue paper overlay whitewashed with gesso. Think the central image behind the vintage stamp was either from a textbook or an encyclopedia. Accents are stickers. Used a green watercolor pencil to add a touch of color around the picture.
Still working. Last night was pretty busy in the ER. Lots of sickness and then people with problems related to holiday depression.
Should I confess that I don't have my holiday shopping finished. Pretty sad, I know. We've cut way back this year anyway. So really just a few gifts to get. Christmas decorating didn't get done like we usually do either. But sometimes you just do the best you can. I hope all of you are having a great week and will be able to spend it with those you love and/or doing whatever it is that means Christmas to you.
