In this festive workshop full of fun flourishing treats, you’ll learn how to combine simple flourished shapes and strokes combined with easily drawn and painted holiday designs on paper, using pointed pen, colored pencils, and watercolor. In this step-by-step guided workshop, you’ll create seasonal treasures like snowmen, ornaments and adornments, banners, bells, bows, and of course, Santa! You will also learn how to add hand-lettered greetings to your designs, and Kathy will share some tips and tricks to help you achieve a balanced and polished, finished composition. (And she’ll throw in some envelope design/addressing tips too!)   
Last, we’ll add some glittery embellishments to make your small beauties sparkle! This workshop is packed with creativity and fun.
It’s sure to get you into the spirit of the season!
