Holy NightPosted: November 7, 2012
My admiration for the colouring wizards on the design team is already considerable but after spending over an hour colouring this one little scene with coloured pencils I have even more respect for the amazing cards they create all the time! I enjoyed doing this one and like the big white frame of the card base around it which seems to make that little stable seem all the more isolated but significant. I used Faber-Castell polychromos pencils and blended the pencils as I laid the colours down lightest to darkest.
My day time schedule changed dramatically this week as a very sweet little 11 month old girl now comes each day at 8am and spends the day. It has been a while since I was surrounded with all the bits and pieces of baby life but it’s all coming back to me. My youngest who just turned 12 is being an excellent “big brother” and the baby girl thinks he is wonderful.
