“Things for Christmas” is a Decorative Painting design that might seem difficult, but that’s actually a lot of fun to do! It could be a little longer compared to others, but I am sure you will be very happy in the end!
The main surface is a kind of tree and has a front panel that can be changed according to the season. And I have to say… this is something that I personally love!
There are other designs for the same surface: Things for Spring, Things for Fall and Things for Summer!
With this design, you can practice the basics of Decorative Painting, for instance: shading and highlights, floats and drybrush, the liner brush.
In addition, there are also other interesting techniques: distressing with a brush and a fun technique to paint the edges of the ornaments.
“Things for Christmas” is actually a Decorative Painting design containing 2 projects, because there are instructions for both front panel and ornaments.
However, also the single pattern packet is available, one only for the ornaments and one only for the front panel.
If you like ornaments, you may be interested also in the Folky designs: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.
If you like the idea of having one surface that you can “dress” according to the season, you may like also I love you in every season, or also the “Seasonal Notes” designs: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.
