This just needed to be a bit silly to me. I have sent out all of my official Christmas cards, but I still have some that I want to make. I was going to take a break from making cards and get some other much needed stuff done, but that doesn’t seem like much fun, so I am planning on just making a couple of cards that I really want to and still trying to get the other stuff done. We will see what actually happens…
Santa’s beard is white again. I swear there is just no telling what works best with this guy. I think it just has to come down to the individual Santa sometimes. Maybe it has to do with the fact that these are really just all helpers and no one really knows what the actual Santa looks like so it’s just guess work at best anyway. Feh!
I have settled on liking Santa better with grey hair. It makes the white trim on his hat stand out better. I have also figured out that I can watercolor with the Delicata ink, which works perfect for his belt buckle. Figuring out how to make Santa just perfect is a bit more difficult than I might have imagined.
I seem to be torn between Santa having white hair and him having grey hair. I think I like the grey hair better. Sometimes it seems weird to me that I think about what is correct when it comes to mythical creatures. Do Yeti’s have skin on the pads of their feet or not? What is the plural for Yeti? I mean I can look up what a penguin looks like and at least feel like I have a shot at getting the colors somewhat correct. Yes, I do overthink things, then I remind myself Yeti’s wouldn’t make such clear foot prints if they didn’t have skin on the bottom of their feet. 🙂
