12 Tags of Christmas Pt.1










Working on the 12 Tags of Christmas challenge Tim Holtz posts yearly.

My version uses no 3-d supplies and are all done using only colored pencil, watercolor, and markers. Each drawing is approx. 5.5 x 8.5

Stunning! I never would have believed your tags were not 3-D. Do you ever allow someone to ost your work on their blog with complete reference to you and your blog? I'd love to share these beautiful works of art to our colored-pencil addicts. Thank you sooo much for your beautiful creativity and artistry.
