My local Headway know's that I am an arty party kind of person and so they had me in mind when they came across the Co op Christmas card combo.
Last year I entered a christmas card combo but it was held by Thompson solicitor's.
I didn't win last year but was a runner up and my Headway were sent an art box which they passed onto me.
Anyhow, I got word from a staff member at the beginning of the month, would I be interested.
I was interested and started right away.
The picture had to demonstrate 'Christmas magic' and at first my design was different and I was going to do the drawing using coloured pencil too which can take longer for me to do.
Half way through my first design I thought about the 'Christmas magic' theme and thought a magician pulling a christmas tree from a hat sounds good and definitely says "Christmas magic" to me, so I started drawing that instead.
I used watercolour pencils as they are a lot quicker and easier to use. I added a little colour pencil on top to add definition and I think it has come out really well.
What do you guys think?
Wish me luck with the combo :).
