JYC 2010: December 5

Advent calendars is the prompt but instead of making one, I had the idea to illustrate it with a "connect the dots" kind of way. On the right, I took some shots of the new decorations for our christmas tree also added a pocket for the journaling spot and a cute Tilda!

I remember that as a child I had lots of fun trying to reveal the hidden image by linking the numbered dots, so I sketched a tree and traced the outline, marked and numberd the dots and then colored it by stamping repeatedly with a small stamp and distress inks so as to make the folliage. Then I used stickles for some shine and ready!  

Last step, I watercolored the Tilda with distress inks, I also used the clear Sakura Startdust for some shine.

Tip: if you try watercoloring an image that's printed with an inkjet printer, make sure that you don't use too much water or else the black ink will bleed. I found that out the hard way!
