It's a holly jolly Tuesday, it's the best time of the year!! Yo ho ho it's a holly jolly creative Tuesday!!!
I was excited to dust off my pad and break out a new box of watercolor pencils to see what would come out for this week's Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday's assignment!
The theme this week was Holidays - ho ho ho!!
This is another tough theme if you ask me, because golly... this could be anything. Here us what popped out of that zany brain of mine.
I started by flipping through the mountain of holiday ads for inspiration and saw a cute little bear ornament with a red nose and bingo! I had my inspiration.
A bear, a mouse, a snowman - oh my!
Don't you just adore new sharp pencils! They are sooo pretty! I had begun playing around with a tree just to get the hang of them.
These are probably a basic set, but I couldn't pass them at the Michael's black Friday sale and I didn't want to commit to a bigger set in case I didn't care for them. So here we are.
I filled my doodle in with ink and erased my pencil lines. Oh my goodness, the bird and the mouse just tickles my cheeks!!
And voila! A few watercolor pencils and Christmas songs sung later and I have a piece I am really proud of. I scanned it in to capture more of the color and rough lines.
Wishing you and your family the most warm and sincere Christmas, Hanukkah, and every other festive celebration this season. Hug and kiss the ones around you and continue to be thankful for every laugh that fills your ear!
