O Christmas Tree and About That Ornament!
The first picture here is how I used all the advice given on my last post. I put my oval template over it for the scan to help show what it will be like in a card. I'm still debating adding some lines of white "snow" or glitter to the ornament as a couple suggested. It just isn't thrilling me though and then today I decided to sketch a tiny tree I bought the other day.
This tree is so tiny it won't hold hardly any ornaments. I strung some beads (the larger ones are a lightweight plastic) on a thread and wrapped the tree with them. Then I strung a few sequins to be the ornaments. I liked it so sketched it this morning. I should have scanned it in before writing on the watercolor paper as it dawned on me that I like this better than the ornament for Christmas cards. Now I will have to try to remember how to get rid of the writing in Photoshop Elements so I can use it. Maybe I can figure out how to put a poll on my blog as to which one to use for my cards this year.
Thanks everyone for all the advice given. So many offered and I think that is a wonderful thing. It's good to have people willing to say more than just "I like/love it" as we get to grow and improve getting the feedback with ideas on improvement. You are all wonderful!
I got the poll up on my sidebar. I'd love it if you'd give me your opinion!
