Christmas Challenge



Priscilla at Casa Bella Chic hosted a Christmas challenge this year . A selection of images were posted on her blog and we needed to design a piece using one , some or all of the images . I'm a bit of a cheat as I paint a new Santa for one of my brothers each year and decided to put my new Santa in for the challenge .


When you get a chance pop over and check Priscillas' blog for her unique pieces .

MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR

Oh, Clare! You can paint, too?! How fun! So, you just painted over the image or from scratch? Wish you'd post it on the flickr group that Pri started.
