More card play

Those wandering lines in a simple landscape have caught up with me again - this time on Christmas cards. I seem to be compelled to make lines wander whatever I do just now. It seems almost beyond my control.

Although I've added a star, I'm not sure how Christmasy these cards are, but maybe it's helped by the later colour choices. The family censor seems to like them and they've got his vote so they're an accepted choice for this year and I making a batch.

However, they don't seem to me like the end of the road for this year and I may well get bored with repeating the same design many, many times so there may be others to follow. I will blog them if they seem like they might be interesting.

How did I make them? I printed the papers with acrylic paint, a roller and a print block, then tore and stuck the shapes. A simple punch cutter gave me the star, I added the greeting and here they are ... very simple but perhaps that's their appeal ... for now ...

  1. I like the elegant simplicity. It certainly does not feel like the end of the year for me either - and yet people are buying Christmas trees in November!

    1. And round here, lots of leaves still on beech, oak and sycamore trees in glorious colour - not like early winter at all. Perhaps that's why I've found it hard to get Christmas inspiration this year. I'm seasonally confused like the wildlife.

  2. They're lovely. And how nice that each is a bit different from the others.

    1. Many thanks to you, Connie - each individually crafted which is why they have to be simple. I always mean to start in about September so I have time to do something more complicated. Perhaps next year ...
