Merry Christmas * 2019 * is hand-written in gold metallic paint pen surrounding the center of the poinsettia. Additional gold was used to outline the red leaves. The poinsettia was sketched onto watercolor paper and then outlined in markers. Smooshing different colors of inks over and over again is what I did to create depth and age for this focal image.
Patterned paper is from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby.
