In this class Cris teaches how to paint christmas ornaments. It was the perfect inspiration for some holiday tags. As I am "understocked" on glitter I just painted with watercolor, simple white guache and a metalic ink pen.

And well, I used some different shapes and colors as I got inspirted by childhood ornaments from the GDR (reunited with Germany in 1990). Through the years my parents lost them, they broke or where just replaced with more modern ones. But I remember them as very colorful - and a bit cheesy - with a very recognizable set of patterns.  So I made a trip down memory lane an created a few GDR inspired christmas tags.
