Sketchnote your way through the Christmas Holidays!
Sketchnote Holiday Challenge Overview
This month we are continuing with weekly Skerchnote challenges. This month we are going to expand our visual vocabulary with more icons. We’re going to make a fun doodled up Sketchnote Christmas Card, a sharing journal and a gift box ornament. I list all the supplies you need below. Hopefully, you will have almost everything you need at home. It is my intention to come up with projects that do not require you to purchase much of anything. I think we need to use what we have. So let the fun begin!
- Printable from members’ only page (sign up for my mailing list to get access)
- Markers and chalk
- Envelope – invitation size A2
- Heavy Cardboard
- Roll of good paper or long paper and washi tape
- Scrap fabric – ¼ yard-ish
- A button 1” or bigger, flatter is better
- Thin ribbon or thick string
- Strong glue/glue gun
- plain gift bag
- Hole punch
- Wrapped Candy or small toy
I will list all the supplies needed by item in future posts.
Drawing daily is a great exercise to keep your brain going and being creative. There are tons of applications for your icons – use them in your Sermon Notes, on gift tags, as ornaments, use them to doodle up your party invites or holiday menu board and you can use it for sketchnoting your holiday recipes. This is just the tip of the iceberg for ideas!
Sketchnote Christmas Card
This simple holiday card is fun to doodle and will bless the recipient because it’s handmade by YOU! You can use the printable on the member’s only page or you can draw you own H’s and then doodle in the O’s. I have done three wreaths, but you can do ornaments, reindeer, candy…. the possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Supplies needed for this project:
Card Stock, Ho HO Ho printable – optional, scissors, markers, A2 envelopes if you decided to use the printable and postage stamps.
If you’re wondering how I managed not to draw over my holly, put a post it down over the holly and then got a nice flow going to draw my circles. Pull up the post it note and the holly is ready for coloring!
