Paint your own Christmas Cards:
Christmas is coming up soon so it is time to start thinking about what to do for Christmas cards.
While there are beautiful cards available everywhere around Christmas, a fun and creative alternate to buying cards would be to send out personalized
Christmas cards by painting your own in watercolour
I have seen some amazing paintings that were done in watercolour. Maybe you are a very skilled
artist or maybe your child just happens to have a set of watercolours already that they love.
I myself use only watercolour now as I find acrylic paints too messy. If you want to create your
Christmas cards and paint them with watercolour, you will need to use watercolour paper to create your card.
This paper soaks up a lot of water that other papers would not be able to handle.
Watercolour sets sometimes come with their own paint brushes. If not, there are paintbrushes available at
any art supply store that are created specifically for watercolour. If you are having your child do the
painting, buy a children's watercolour set, but if you will be doing a lot of the painting, you should splash
out on the real set because the colours will be far bolder.
I do hope we have a white Christmas
this year. Spread some cheer by painting your own Christmas Cards like the
examples shown below. Everyone loves to get cards on Christmas, whether
it's a young child or a teenager or even an aged person. The recipients of the
cards will appreciate the gesture all the more since it is a handmade hand
painted Christmas card. Hand made Christmas cards have a certain emotional
aspect attached to them, which makes us feel special.
What's even better is that you are creating
something from the heart for some who is close to you so your not restricted in
what message you have on the inside. The attractiveness of the Christmas cards goes a notch
higher the moment we come to know that the sender of the card had made it
If you are not artistic enough to make
and paint your own special Christmas greeting card you could ask me to paint one
for you. The recipient will still be impressed at the fact that you have gone to
the trouble of having one made specially by someone else for them.
Have fun and have a lovely Christmas!
