Sixth State: Five More Layers on This Years Distressed Painting Mixed Media Christmas Card
I continue to write about the many steps involved in creating our 2016 Christmas Card. It is a process that I return to over time as I also work on other art projects.
Just five layers to go and the painting will be done! However, I’ve several other projects in progress so will not return to the card until August. It should be done toward the end of that month. The final steps will include; 1) decide which portion of the painting will be photographed for the actual card, 2) Photograph and crop the image, 3) the card design (inside and outside) created and sent off to the printer. Unlike my usual mad rush to finish, this card should be done well before mailing time for the holidays.
