Hello friends. After the mass blogging of 2 weeks ago i have gone quiet last week but i was mega busy and i did go to the NEC.
This is a wooden ornament I bought from Anne Marie designs. I painted the word and base in chalk white and then white pearlescent acrylic paint. Once dry i went over it with a thick layer of rock candy crackle paint by Ranger.
Then i went over it with icy blue paint and then wiped it so that some white showed through and the blue stayed in cracks.
Next i added puffy paint to base and heated it to puff it up. I also added paint to words to mimic snow.
I added some spellbinders snowflakes which I covered in distress glitter.
The reindeer came in this colour and all I did was tie a bell round their necks with a piece of burlap string.
I also added a couple of trees that I made by wrapping the twiney string around a cone. The stars are from the Tim Holtz embellies.
Finally I added some beads here and there to add more interest and to resemble snow balls. The last touch was adding some ice snow for a bit of sparkle.
And that is my Christmas ornament. I would love to know what you think, Theresa xx.
I would like to enter this in the following challenge:
