Let me start this blog post by wishing you all a happy - and creative - new year. Okay, not very original, but it is the time of the year :-)

They don't look too bad, but they needed some color. I used water color because I like the way I can blend colors with this. This is the result:
Tomorrow they will cross the pond to the swap hostess.
