Christmas in June by Velvet--Glove Christmas in June by Velvet--Glove
Ultra Fractal 4.04

:santa: It's a long story and old habits die hard. For many years the nature of my work has meant preparing Christmas designs in May/June for publication some months later. Valentine's day is in August and December is when I think about English roses and summer themes... in my topsy turvy world I have always been six months ahead of time, LOL!

:rudolph: When this image began to take on gold and green colours it seemed a natural for a Christmas theme.

I would therefore like to be the first to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas 2007! :D

:rofl:

We all need more time so to anyone who may 'fave and run' on this piece or any other: thank you so much for your quickie 'vote of approval'. :heart:

Aha your a writer then? I do that too and totally understand being on a different calendar schedule ;)

This makes a very lovely Christmas card! I had been thinking of making my own fractal cards this year and I too have been playing with the Christmas colors and themes, just as I am in my writing. Lol how funny.

Very lovely image!

No, not a writer I'm afraid. I used to work freelance, creating needlework designs every month for magazine readers to stitch. These patterns are usually related to the month or season in which they are published but have to be prepared many months in advance, of course.

Thanks for the :+fav: and good luck with your card images, they are fun to do! I have been making my own general purpose cards just recently - a 5" x 7" fractal photo stuck on the front of a blank, folded card makes a wonderfully unique and creative card that I am proud to send to anyone. :)

Aha that makes sence. When writing magazine articles, seasonal material needs to be submitted anywhere from 3-6 mo. in advance depending on the publications needs. I write and thought you may have too lol. Its similar though, the mind set. :)

Your very welcome for the fave, its a lovely piece. I did make some thank you cards recently with fractal art on it, but doing so for the holidays is a lovely idea. I think Ill need to do that; something new this year. :) Thank you for the inspiration!!!

Lovely depth to your leaves, a great wooden "stem" and very festive placement of the greenery and berries. A splendid Christmas card!
