Wishing you the best for the holiday season!
These tiles started from an inspiration I got from Ellen Wolters. She provided the template for the Love tile. After I did that I wanted to go on with other sentiments for the holidays. I looked through the books I have by Joanne Fink - 'Zenspirations' and 'Dangle Designs'. That's where I found ideas for the lettering.
Each of these tiles started out with a tile I had previously hand colored with water color paints. I did the line work with whichever Micron pen coordinated best with the background color. The colored pencils I used for shading were chosen based on the background color also.
