Christmas has come early for this crafty girl! I'm so very excited to share that I am a new design team member with Passionate Paper Creations & Friends! What perfect timing to share my debut with sponsor Joy Clair.

Okay, onto my creation!

Being a mountain girl I wanted to show off this lovely image of Santa kicking up his heels in the Colorado snow! In my opinion, all good workshops are contained in a log cabin and have a natural stone footpath. So that's what I decided to create!

The trees themselves are rather easy to create. The key is to utilize a lighter marker color in the background to give the impression of trees in the distance. Then it's all in the wrist!

The Project:

Start by drawing a faint reference line and then begining at the bottom of the line and make big swishy lines back and forth getting thinner as you get to the top. Repeat a 2nd time, even think about sideway figure 8's.

I love how as you layer color the trees become more and more full! And then select lighter shades to fill in-between the trees and for the background.

For the falling snow, I decided I was NOT going to had draw in each falling flake, so I water-downed some white acrylic paint and flicked it over the entire image. *Remember, snow also has to fall ON your primary image so don't cover it up or be afraid to get snow on it.

Here are the Copics that I used:

Skin: E35; E13

Hair/Beard: C1;C2

Clothes: R02; R14; R24; R46; W2

Gloves/Cane: Y11; Y15; YR23

Rocks: W5; T3; T0

Mud: E77

Trees:YG63; G94; G46; BG93; E74;

Cabin: E43; E44; 57

Snow: Distress oxide-Broken China & Iced Spruce; White acrylic paint

Thanks for following!
