March Creativity!

March has been a really busy month for me this year. I went to LA for three weeks on vacation, while taking an online design class and finishing up two client projects. March has been so busy that I haven’t had the chance to post much of my work, so I will be playing catch-up a bit in April this year.

Starting with what is most recent. I had the privilege of attending my very first baby cousins baptism this past weekend. She is so sweet and I was very excited to make some personal gift for her  – A pink stroller greeting card and a baby elephant print with her name and birthday on for framing.

I am intending to share a lot more of my work with you in April, but for the time being, you can check out my artist profile on Instagram: @illulinn if you are curious about what I am working on.

December 23rd – The birth of a savior. For the most part I try to keep my work religious neutral, but it felt appropriate to have one religious entry this close to Christmas. This card is for all my religious followers or for you who just appreciates the beautiful scenery of the historical Bethlehem. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord” Luke 2:11. This is the 23rd illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.

December 22nd – The little Drummer Boy’s carol. I am a little behind posting my Christmas calendar this year, but better late than never! This illustrated christmas card is in attribute to one of my favorite english christmas carols the little drummer boy, as well as one of my favorite danish christmas songs that mentions a little drum hanging on the Christmas tree. All in all I find that the drum is a lovely symbol of the joyous music that enchants us during the holiday season. This is the 22nd illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.

December 21st – Kissed under the mistletoe. Since Christmas is the celebration of love and tradition, hopefully the traditional meaning of the mistletoe can bring together new love or enforce old love between people. This is the 21st illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.

December 20th – Oh how exciting it is! The time for getting and decorating the free. The kids wait in anticipation, as the adults put on the ornaments passed down from their parent’s parents. It is a time for joy and tradition and the beauty of handmade crafts mixed with nature. A time for families and friends to get together and celebrate love. This is the 20th illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.

December 17th –Beautifully decorated front doors this Christmas! I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite thing to do during december is simply walking around admiring the beautifully decorated doors and hourses. Christmas lights, rings, snowmen – just seeing people enjoy making their homes cater to the Christmas Spirit around town. My mom made these beautiful rings every year since I was a little kid, so this is how my family home front door looks like most years 🙂 This is the 17th illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.
