Merry Christmas! Santa in Colored pencils!

Hi friends! I figured I’d take this time while my family is showering and getting ready to venture to my sister’s house to wish you a merry Christmas. I hope you are enjoying some time with your family today and if you can’t in person hopefully virtually. It’s been a challenging year and I am hoping 2022 will be more normal!

I hope you relax with a cozy drink and snack and enjoy this colored pencils video I have prepared for you.

Supplies:

  • Marco Tribute colored pencils (I am using the 120 oil based set from Andstal stationary shop sent to me for review)
  • Canson Mi Tintes pastel paper: I like the convenience of the pads for small colored pencil work but they no longer sell the assortment that I have but here is what is available in pads. Here are the per sheet options. The sheets are large so you will need a place to store them or you will need to cut them down when you receive them. *Actually they are now selling 25 sheet packs of 8.5″x11″ of single colors if that is more convenient for you and there is a color you want a lot of. I used the textured side.

Stay safe, be kind, merry Christmas, and until next time happy crafting!

  2. This is absolutely wonderful! There was never a hot mess phase! And in the end it looked even better than the real thing. I also admire your choice of the paper … it makes it look like from the Victorian Age. I have a stack of sheets of Mi Teintes in a light gray green I bought for pastel portraits ages ago and forgot about. Luckily it doesn’t go bad like watercolor paper!
    This made my day on a hectic Christmas Day morning with the dishwasher and the microwave breaking down! In the end all was well but it sure didn’t look like that at first … but this video transferred me into Happy Land for a while. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. Ooops! I was just told “Happy Land” is a game …. of course I didn’t mean something like that!
      Maybe “Land of Bliss” is more like it …. unless a computer game with that name exists too!
      Life is getting really complicated …
