Santa is in town !

ALL THE Santas have arrived and they are Flat.
i trade with an atc group  that put out the theme of flat santa recently.
 artsinthecards. mine is the one on the far right and the last to be sent out.
i went right to bookmark in my creative brain center.

my little Santa emerged from a used dry tea bag stain.
 the paper is great to paint and drawn on after ironed.
 just a hint of a shape in the stain  gave way to sketching, painting.
 and stitching with a black thread on my Singer  Featherweight  machine.
 and a bit  more paint.
 at the  bottom i added a small piece of scrap chenille fabric.
if i had a mantel he and the others would be on it.
now i am all ready for Christmas,
 well almost ready.
a few mre things to finish before the night before Christmas and...

Most happy holidays to all!
