12 Days of Christmas Art Advent.

I do this to myself every year.... I guess it is the love of crafting and being inspired .
I was on one of my Favourite blogs.. Yes and Amen.. by Junelle Jacobsen. 
I had met her through Christy Tomblinson's She Art classes and was so inspired by 
everything she does.. from photography, sketching, and her art pieces. Honestly she is 
amazing!!  She with other wonderful artist were hosting a Christmas ornament on line class..
I totally missed it.. being so busy but I was so inspired by some of the photo's she had on her blog.
I wanted to do little ornaments but didn't have time to go get any small canvases.. So this is what I did 
instead... I wanted to do a 12 Days of Christmas Advent for Sydney and thought these girls would
be perfect for the pockets.. and it would be a wonderful piece of Art for this time of year.. and hopefully
she will have this for years to come.. 

Advent!! 

Here it is hanging in my living room.  I will be putting some notes, gifts, crafts inside the pockets. So Sydney will have a little thing to open starting today when she comes home from school.. The Crafty items I will be leaving for weekends so we have time to do them. 


Now here are the individual panels of ARt..










These are all painted by hand, I don't sketch the girls.. I just go and layer paints on until I get something that works.. Using Canvas Cloth ( Home Depot) Faber Castell big brush pens, acrylic paints, stickles, fibers, prima flowers, jillibean soup letters, Unity stamps, beads, Helmar 450 quick dry and de'coupage glue  and lots of thread..

Now I am painted and tired out..haha.. but I think it was all worth it ..
Happy Holiday's everyone!!
come back tomorrow..
I will have my December Daily pages to share.
hugs,
Angie
