Last one! The intended targets loved it.
My first attempt at a shaker card, I think it turned out well, considering I couldn’t find any 3d foam tape. And the “Noel” is a touch off centre, but it still turned out lovely.

My apologies for the blurry photo, and for forgetting to post this here.
This one was for C, who’s an amazing person, and always gets the most difficult card to make.
I struggled with so many different ways to make the “Season’s greetings” writing, only to settle on 3D glue with black holo glitter dusted onto it. The Northern Lights were difficult to paint (since I’m bad at landscapes), and the trees were so darn stabby.

This one is for N, I don’t know if she even received it as I haven’t heard anything from her. But I’m just going to sit here and be hopeful that it managed to find her.
Cardstock of various colors and finishes. Gold finetec ink, and he leaves are hand cut.
It’s that time of year where I make some Christmas cards for a select few. I made a total of 4 this year, and this one was for S. She’s received it a while ago now, so it’s safe to post it. And from her response she really liked it.
Done using black cardstock, homemade glitter paste, pearls, rhinestones and gold ink.
Still haven’t been drawing much, but I had to make a new case since my last 2 were broken beyond repair. For this season we have a pastel, drippy moon with some pearlescent pigment added (which doesn’t show up on camera too well).

Not art related, but I bought some exciting fabrics lately, the most exciting being that fun pineapple print. Most of these will be going on to become shirts, but that pink is going to become a skirt. And I also wanted to dye the flamingo printed one with some pink, because I can’t possibly have dull white coloured flamingos.
Anyways, I do have some drawings I’m working on as well, so I will be posting my more normal stuff soon.
So I have a lot of sketchbooks. And right now I’m working on one that I hate. To be honest, most of the sketchbooks I have I hate the paper in them, it’s just not the right texture and it makes drawing kind of difficult. Once I’ve filled them up I’m going to hit up Deserre’s and Curry’s to get some with paper I actually like.
Speaking of which, the sketchbook pictured above has this really smooth, thin kraft paper. I do wish the paper had a touch more texture to it, but I think it’s pretty decent for markers.
Anyway, I got bored looking at it’s bland kraft coloured cover so I painted it.
Acrylic paints, and matte medium.
