This ever so cute ‘Elfie’ has been at the end of my paintbrush creating all kinds of Christmas fun over the past few years.

This year he is capturing all the memories he can….with a few ‘Elfie Selfies’!

‘Elfie Selfie‘ is created in acrylics onto wood shaped ornaments by Sheila Landry (….she gets me) of www.tolepaintingdesigns.com.

Sheila is an accomplished Designer herself, alongside of her wood working skills. You can also find Sheila on her Blog and thru Etsy with fine art, needlework, and cooking alike! Visit her website to connect for all.

Do you remember anxiously awaiting for your photos to arrive by mail? Maybe you even dropped them off at a Photo Hut…remember they sat in most Grocery Store parking lots?

Imagine that, we mailed our little canisters away in hopes that all photos will develop just fine…..no previews, no deletes, no edits, no watermarks, just a hope and a prayer.

I still have one canister to develop, I wonder what is on it.

Purchase your very own ‘Elfie Selfie‘ download-able acrylic pattern (here) ~ and let’s paint!

Paper copy also available (here)

and wood ornaments available thru Sheila (here).

Then create this little Elfie gift tag to coordinate a gift ~ using the camera line drawing provided with the pattern and using the Mini Elfie Stamp from our new Classic Cling Rubber Stamp Collection.

Simply transfer the camera line drawing from the pattern onto watercolor paper and add sketchy pencil lines over the line drawing as your guide….then add a little grey and black watercolor to the edges. Using the Mini Elfie Stamp (here on sale too) ~ and black ink, stamp into the center of the paper camera….and add some color with watercolors as well ~ following the free guide provided with the stamp. I bet ya this would look just as cute onto black watercolor paper too!

Imagine giving this set of hand painted ornaments along with a favorite family photo and a hand made gift tag this Christmas Season. Making more Merry Moments.

Below are a few examples of Stamped Christmas Gift Tags with this years Collection
