Dreaming of a Green Christmas (Secret Santa) by ashren Dreaming of a Green Christmas (Secret Santa) by ashren
:holly: My Secret Santa for *Moonstone27 I hope she likes it!! :holly:

She requested something cute with Jane teaching Tarzan about Christmas.

It was surprisingly difficult to think of a profound way to show Jane teaching Tarzan about Christmas without making it enormously complicated...but after watching a Muppet Christmas Carol (BEST adaptation ever!!) I realised that nobody does the meaning of Christmas better than Dickens...

Jane has coffee beans in her hair as a holly substitute :D though this may be no-more accurate as I'm not sure if coffee plants would grow naturally in the lowland jungle...

I tried out *egophiliac 's construction-paper-cutout tutorial [link] to make this :)

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Beautiful work!  I love the idea of Jane and Tarzan reading a classic Christmas carol in the jungle!

I was going to have her reading the nativity story to him but then I thought A Christmas Carol was brilliantly victorian! I'm glad you like it :)
