Creative Christmas countdown 2017

Creative prompts for Christmas countdown #Christmas #creative #advent

Last year I had a lot of fun drawing and painting every day to countdown until Christmas. I even uploaded some of my illustrations as ornament designs. See them all at www.zazzle.com/eileen_mckenna.

I’ve decided to challenge myself again this year. The prompts are the same – it will be interesting to see how the same prompts can be interpreted differently this year. I hope you’ll follow along, and maybe draw along too! Let me know!

Silver Bells

Day 22 of the Christmas countdown. Silver bells, silver bells… One of my favorite Christmas songs! I drew the bell in Adobe draw on my iPad. I thought I’d do more digital drawings this month, but instead spent 21 days working in watercolor and ink.

Carol is painting along with me. See her beautiful bells here. Only 3 more days left in the countdown!

Mrs. Claus

Day 21 in the Christmas countdown. She’s the woman behind the man in the red suit. I suspect she deserves a lot more credit than she gets. 😂

My childhood favorite Christmas movie is “The Year without a Santa Claus.” Mrs. Claus has a big role in this movie, as well as Mother Nature. Mother Nature’s sons Heat Miser and Mr. Snow were, in my opinion, the best part of the movie. What’s your favorite Christmas movie? My current favorite is “Elf.”

A visit with Santa

Day 20 in the Christmas countdown. This was done from a photo of my youngest visiting the Santa at the local nursery. I wish the other 2 had been there because I still have to get this year’s photo. It’s getting a little awkward because the two high schoolers can’t all fit in the chair with Santa. But traditions are traditions. We’ve been taking the yearly photo since my daughter was 2 months old and was asleep in Santa’s arms.

Santa’s bag

Day 19 Christmas countdown. It’s so close! I want to scream, “SANTA!” like Buddy the Elf. If you haven’t seen “Elf” stop reading this post and immediately download it and watch it. It is hysterical.

When I was little Christmas took forever to get here. As an adult it seems to come pretty quickly. My kids are asking me if I’m excited for Christmas. Um excited isn’t the word. I still have to finish shopping, food shop, make food, bake, wrap too many presents, make sure everyone has something to wear, (thank you to my husband who will iron the clothes), pack the car, make sure we leave for mass on Christmas Eve in time to get a seat, spend the entire mass trying not to cry that my dad passed away and isn’t taking up the collection, unpack the car at my sister’s, heat up the food, and then, then I’ll be excited.

With that list, you may be wondering, “why is she spending so much time painting?” 😂

Elves and a candy cane zipline

Day 18 in the Christmas countdown. Wanted to have a little movement in my illustration today so a zipline popped into my head. Just one week til Christmas!

Use the tag adventmcr if you’re drawing/painting along! 😀
