So I'm showing my ideal, old fashioned Christmas Village scene. I can almost hear the Christmas music (I know I can hear it louder in any retail store) and feel the crunch of the snow under my feet. I'm thinking this man has just visited the toy shop to pick up last minute gifts for his kids & is heading to the craft store to pick up a very special gift for his crafty wife. If he waited until the last minute like my hubs, I bet it's extra special, or else he'll be sharing quarters w/ Fido. This was a fun scene to create & I really didn't have to do very much masking since everything is far enough apart. After I colored everything w/ Copics, I added some stickles to some of the snow & some crystal effects stuff to the icy pond. I even let it dry overnight. You'll never know how hard it was to wait.
