The Little Brat

Today is the the eighth day of Smeared and Smudged's 2014 12 Days of Creepmas Blog Hop!  I'm excited to be here, along with all the other great artists that you can see in the blogroll to the right.  Start at the top with Terra or just jump in anywhere and follow along.  If you've arrived here from Keren's blog, you'll want to continue on to the lovely Leigh after stopping here.

We guarantee to give you an alternative view of the holidays!

Today I have a little piece I have entitled, The Little Brat.  As you can see this is another of my adventures in discount framing!

And here we have my best friend through the holidays, a little elf I just like to call "Evan."  (Sometimes his friends "Jim" and "Jack" visit my house, too!)

The details:
  1. Santa and child image--from Old-Fashioned Christmas Illustrations CD-ROM and book, by Dover Publications.
  2. KimberlyGeneral’s Loew Cornell, and Prismacolor watercolor pencils
  3. Prima Marketing Chalk Ink Edgers 
  4. Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk Inks
  5. Swirl stamp (in background)--from Hero Arts Not Perfect Poly Clear stamp set
  6. Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Gold
  7. Tsukineko irRESISTible Pico Embellisher


  1. Look at Santa's hands - I can see her flying across the room!
