 Just when I was getting use to the old set-up, they go and change things on me.  Now I've got to learn things all over again.  Here is the group of holiday cards I made for a commission order.  The person didn't want your typical holiday/Christmas cards, so I made what I would like to get.

Most of the cards are geometric collages.  I use different shapes and textures to make each card.

 The one on the left is a sort of beach scene with a butterfly.

 Forgot to turn these the around.  Sorry.  I like the one on the right.  It's a not-too-cold winter scene.

 Two more beach scenes.  I'm not having fun with this because I have to change the font every time I move the cursor to type.  I kind of wish I were at the beach right now.

 The customer also likes Asian themes, so I did these two.  The one on the right is a geometric bonsai.  The one on the left is based on Chinese style painting.

 These two are of course, kimonos.  Both cut out of paper.  The collars, inner neck, fan, and belt.

Two starry night scenes using paper.  Love the plaid birds.  I didn't have time to make my own cards.  I guess that will be on my list for next year.
