I made three designs of animals wearing knitwear, one being a polar bear, one a robin, and one a reindeer. I feel these animals are pretty reminiscent of Christmas? My theme was "Cosy Christmas" (cheesy?)
Here they are:
|Cosy Polar Bear|
I decided to get 25 cards printed, featuring the 3 designs. I did this at www.moo.com , which is a good website for printing. I also chose some recycled brown envelopes to go with them, which are pretty! I love recyled brown paper, it has a lovely imperfect quality.
|Card stack and envelopes!|
|The message inside read "Have a cosy Christmas!"|
|Here they are perched on my mantelpiece...|
And carrying on the Christmas theme, who wants a Christmassy computer desktop wallpaper hand-drawn by moi? No one?! How mean!
Well anyway, I have this as my laptop wallpaper:
And you could have it too! I have made it in four different colours, so take your pick!
I'll explain how below!
|Happy Xmas 1!|
|Happy Xmas 2!|
|Happy Xmas 3!|
|Happy Xmas 4!|
All you need to do is:
- Right click on the image you want, then "Save picture as..." and give it a filename.
- Then go to "Control Panel"
- Then to "Appearance and Personalisation", "Change desktop background"
- Then "Browse" for the file location for the image.
- For the "Positioning" of the image, select Tile.
This works for my screen, with the resolution set to 1280 by 800 pixels :)
Anyway, made for you with love. Just sharing the Christmas joy!
Next on the agenda:
