Day 5 Catch the Bug week Long Christmas in July

Good Day

There is a new technique challenge - mix media - at the JUGS and you can find the tutorial here. Unfortunately I only had a Pine Needles green and Weathered Wood grey/blue, Distress ink and I used a Buff Titanium (cream) base acrylic paint. It came out a bit like a bad weather day. That gave the inspiration for the sentiment. As contrast I used Buried Santa from Bugaboo and tried to create a tropical scene in the right corner. For the most of you, Christmas is associated with snow, grey skies and cold weather. Where I stay we celebrate Christmas in the middle of our Summer holidays, though we had bad weather too, from time too time. 

Challenges I'm joining:
JUGS #197 - Mix Media technique
Catch the Bug Day 5 - Humorist Christmas
Anything goes #97 - Anything goes

Thank you

Olga - I think this is the cutest - I am sure Santa would love to relax on his own little island in the sun on Dec 25th!
Thanks for entering our Christmas in July event, good luck in the draw!
luv'n huggz

Great idea! We forget that Christmas is celebrated by others in the sun. Thank you for joining us at Anything Goes. Hope to see you again soon.
