Sketchbook Challenge

2011 is bound to be filled with wonderful surprises. I am going to participate in The Sketchbook Challenge and I am hoping it will help me in constructing a routine for daily drawing or scribbling as the case may be. It sounds like a lot of fun, you will be given prompts at the beginning of each month and tips, techniques and tutorials will be offered to help you along the way. Click on The Sketchbook Challenge icon in the sidebar to be taken to their website for more information.

Santa Tag

This beautiful Santa is worked over a black base and is painted with a dry brush technique. It could be painted on a variety of surfaces and we did it on a "shipping tag" to be used as an ornament for the tree. It would also make a nice bookmark for readers and it would slip right inside the Christmas card for a surprise gift to someone special. The design is by Donna Atkins.
