From the beginning stages of my watercolor elements painting I posted last week to my Instagram feed, to the clean up of the files, and final pattern creation, this "warmest wishes snowman" holiday collection was a blast to make!
It was two weeks in the making because I do work a full time work week like the majority of my blog readers. I had the watercolor elements finished last Sunday, but I didn't take the time to scan and adjust until today. I am happy to announce this is now available as multiple card templates, gift wrapping, sticker sets, and more. Just click on my store link to see all of the wonder whimsical-ness of this set.
Here's a hint. Keep checking back to zazzle for their money saving discounts. The next three days you can save up to 40% off of invitations and other options. Some of the newest set below are part of this sale. Get a jump start on your totally unique holiday greeting cards now!

My creative process 99 percent of the time starts out with a sketch. If I love the idea, I will follow up with inking the artwork and then scanning it onto my laptop. Clean up of the lineart is the next step in the process, followed by coloring in Photoshop and finally vectoring. After an hour or so, I can start making products and patterns for various items. The photo posted above shows the inked art and not the rougher sketches. As you can see, there are a few ne items now available for Halloween in my Zazzle shop. Click the link to see and purchase if they tickle your fancy.
I'm off to start creating more fun items!
