December days 1 & 2

Day 1 (yesterday) of Tim Holtz's 12 tags for Christmas.
I went with his basic idea but used what I had in the studio
I have been doing a bit of sketching faces
Art is practice, patience, perseverance, and play!
Day 2 (today)

I drew the deer and cut it out freehand
I dyed the ribbon and burlap with coffee

Last week was a special family time with good company and delicious food.
This week has been a whirlwind of activity - painting, crafting, designing a new quilt, attending a Christmas luncheon, shopping, and working.
Sorry I haven't been around the web much lately but I have lots to show you in the next few weeks.
Thanks for stopping by,
Chris

Good to see you post your gorgeous tags!!! That blue Noel is amazing. The burlap on your reindeer tag is the perfect touch. <3
