Holly Jolly Santa 5 (2)

For the past 8 months I felt like I have been riding a tilt-a-whirl.  Spinning fast, reaching the top, spinning again and spinning round and round…..

You see, I have been preparing for the HOOT Convention in Columbus OH while working my 9-5, painting furniture at Tink’s Antiques and teaching at the Tamaqua Community Arts Center….and so on and so on.

While planning for HOOT, I knew I needed to complete 5 acrylic paintings for a co-authored book with Jane Allen of janeallencreates.com, but I also wanted to have new pattern packets too, Holly Jolly Santa is one of them!   A booth is always it’s best with new products and patterns to share…..

What you see was not my first intention for this piece of wood.  I had my favorite local wood cutter (Thank you Austin….) cut a sample Santa from wood to design a Classic Chalk Art pattern for our Community Art Center…..but he turned into an acrylic pattern in no-time and He sure is cute!

The ideas just kept coming as I continued to paint…..the belt buckle came out of no where, as did the elf in the pocket!

I used Glamour Dust Paint by DecoArt Americana and sprinkled his shoulders and boots with snow like glitter!

The back of Holly Jolly Santa is done in my favorite Chalk Board style…..

Holly Jolly Santa has become a popular fella! He will be appearing at a beginner Decorative Art Workshop on November 19th, 2016 at the Tamaqua Community Arts Center, Tamaqua PA

He is also available as a pattern $8.00.  Wood cut-out is $10.00.  Drop me an email at classicamyjoanne@gmail.com to purchase

PS – the wood Santa shown was cut from scrap lumber as my sample….wood you will be purchasing is smooth and no graining!

A note about my blog/site and purchasing!  I do not have an official shopping cart for my site…why you ask?  Well, I try to pass the savings onto you and onto me, keeping it simple.  I can keep the costs lower and offer specials and save time if I ask you to email me your purchase…..I simply create a Paypal invoice for payment.  Payment can be paid thru your Paypal, via check or telephone with credit card #. Shipment will be made the day of payment.

I sure had fun at HOOT with my booth mates, Wendy Young, Jane Allen and our hubbys!  I will be sure to post more soon…..
