I finished December's Travelling Sketchbook this week! Yay! It was a fun one to do as December is a very full and eventful month. This book belongs to Brandy. I started with a nutcracker, as December always starts with nutcrackers for me. They start their exodus out of storage on December 1st and slowly emerge until the tree is up when the rest burst from their confines, onto the Christmas scene.
Brandy has pink hair, so in her honour my nutcracker asked for his hair to be painted pink.
Spread with words about my Decembers
My other spread... wordless at this stage...
Snowman Spread with words/poem
(to the tune of "twinkle, twinkle little star")
Snowflakes, snowflakes falling down,
On the trees and on the ground.
I will build a man of snow,
Tall black hat and eyes of coal,
If the sun comes out today,
I will watch you melt away!
Brandy also gave us butterflies to paint and use as sign in cards - this is mine - green is the rear view and red, the front view - and in her book it has my contact information written all over it. (They are small, only about 2 inches in size, if that.)
This book is a bit out of order and is now on its way to Carmen in the UK! I'm still awaiting the September, November and January sketchbooks. Until they arrive, I hope to get some painting done on canvases. And gasp - maybe finish one? Maybe my nutcracker painting?
What are you planning to do this week?
Hope everyone has a great Paint Party Friday!!
