Retro Holiday, © Joanne Hus

It may be October, but we’re all about winter holidays here in MATS!

Week 1, our assignment from Lilla Rogers is to create a holiday card using retro ornaments and/or candy. I was surprised to find in my research that many ornaments from the 1960s used pink and light blue, so I made a point of letting that inspire my palette. I also wanted to use more texture than I usually do, so I painted a background in acrylic and scanned it in. I experimented with making the vector shapes look more like cut paper. I like the contrast of the brushwork with the flat shapes.

What do you think? Who do you know would love to get this card in their mailbox?
