Christmas fun

So the annual Christmas card-making in our house has begun.

I admit that the source of inspiration was Sunrise #3 – the painted wall mural by Robert Owen at the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Sydney. What started as a crappy iPhone photo was overlayed and scratched up and distorted and I added snowflakes and stars.

The font is a stencil font from dafont, which unintentionally looks a bit festive.

The little logo for the back of the card is hand drawn, just with a felt tip pen. I’ve done a little stamp like this for the back of our Christmas cards most years for the last few years.

Printed on matte, slightly textured Pixma card from Dean’s Art. Just printed on the little canon inkjet at home.

Nothing earth-shattering, but I do like to get my hands dirty at Christmas.
