Creativity has always been one of my passions in life. How do we as artists and designers stay connected with our creative center? We always hear to think outside of the box and let your creativity soar. I'd like to think that these posts on this blog may accomplish that for some of you. By sharing my thoughts and experiences I'm sure that it will inspire me as well.

What Else Can I Do With this Santa Pattern? Santa Card Step by Step
In my last post I mentioned that I was planning to do a step by step demonstration using one of the Santa faces from the First Star Of Christmas Pattern. I used the face from the tin santa and changed the hat slightly and painting this on 140lb hot pressed watercolor paper. I've painted only the face adding the shading and highlighting and painted in the base color of the hat. The next step will be to add the shading and highlighting to the hat as well as beginning the process of developing the beard, mustache, hair, and hat trim. Check back soon to see this project develop into a Christmas Card for family and friends.
