Advent Calendar 2010 - Colors, Words, and Sources

For each of the 28 drawings in my Advent Calendar 2010, here are the Copic colors (and any other materials) that I used, the words, and the sources for quoted words. Unless noted otherwise, everything is drawn and written with black Copic multiliners, generally 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3.

Sun 11/28/2010 Words: We are leaving ordinary time
Source: In the church year, Advent is preceded by a long stretch of “ordinary time,” the summer and fall months after Pentecost. I used the same words to begin my 2009 Advent Calendar and my 2008 Advent Calendar.
