they loved to decorate!

i have been reading this book and practicing some techniques learned from within the pages and LOVING it. my art teacher let me borrow before our winter break. (haha that sentence makes our time together sound structured) i have been wanting to send her some kind of a holiday card to thank her for her many borrowed books and creative techniques she's been teaching me, and thanks to Claudine Hellmuth, I came up with this.

what do you think??

{sidenote: i never liked decorating for christmas as a kid, so the thought of being a mother and having children excited to do so is, like, totally a fantasy for me. i loved the faces on these children and could never figure out to do with their photo and i think it just works great!}
