So here is my story:
I tried - I really tried - to stay in the studio with 42000 wild and whirly teapot party artists, but it just got too crazed so I threw on my coat, grabbed my portable easel and went out to paint a landscape of the village - Plein d'air they call it. We have had a major snow storm here on the Cape so every thing is covered with almost a foot of snow. It all looked so lovely but my water for my watercolors - water soluble crayons actually - kept freezing. Maybe I should have throw a little alcohol into the water :-) Finally its done and now I can go get a hot cup of tea and some cookies and warm up while I watch the rest of the teapotters trying to hid stamps and embossing folders and everything else under their smocks!
I needed one more special holiday card and this blank canvas idea was perfect. It is also a perfect time to wish all of you "Peace on Earth"! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Image - I have no idea. I received this stamped image in a swap a few years ago and I just uncovered it from where it was stashed - water colored with water soluble crayons and then a little stickles on the snow in the foreground to bling it up; sentiment is Anna Griffin 3-D Christmas stickers; DP is our girl MS.
