Tita Berredo teaches how to make a Rudolf the reindeer Christmas card. Merry Christmas! 

The Words & Pictures team certainly had an amazing year, filled with insightful articles and a world of illustrations. We hope you had a great time with us, so I thought I should do a celebration illustration video that you can follow and make your own version.

For this Christmas card, I used a waterproof fine liner, and watercolour brush-pens (Ecoline and Pentel). For the lettering I used a red calligraphy marker, and I thought Rudolf would enjoy a hot chocolate with marshmallows, because I do too.

Merry Christmas, everyone — enjoy!

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
