***Merry Christmas*** This is my 2011 Christmas card. I usually try to work a peace symbol into my design. This year I wanted to do a vintagey calico fabric style of design inside my peace dove. I've taken a zillion photos of my morning glories, so I used several photos and painted a pattern using Dr. Ph. Martin's watercolor dyes on cold press watercolor paper. Then I scanned the painting, filled in my dove using the pattern in PS, and was satisfied that it looked similar to vintage calico. I then printed the doves on white photo paper, cut them out, mounted them on foam tape to give it a 3-D effect and mounted them onto my background. I looked up many languages of the word peace to use as a background. Wishing you all a very very peaceful 2012!
