This is my first Christmas post this year……..a couple of days earlier than I planned. I USED to be SO good & have my tree up, house decorated & cards out on 1st December. (I had finished present shopping in October!) Only a couple of days to go ’til the 1st & I only wrote my first card today – I haven’t finished my Christmas shopping & I am really dragging my feet trying to get things sorted. Every now & then I revisit my watercoloured pears & this is my latest one – created for a Christmas give away in my Paper Traders Yahoo Group. It is made from a combination of scrapbooking paper background & the pear is painted on 680 gsm Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper (IS there any other sort????? I love it!) I drew the shape first with my PITT markers, then stamped & coloured it with watercolours. As always we will buy gifts for those who are doing it tough this year & I would encourage you to do the same – SPREAD THE LOVE PEOPLES!
