Square Glass Ornament

I wanted to try something new with some square glass ornaments that I had. I used paper from Graphic 45 “Nutcracker Sweet” collection for the back ground image along with ribbon, lace, a white paper poinsettia, mica flakes and a crystal. For the  front of the glass I took a mask and Gesso to created a raised pattern which I then added Stickles to for some sparkle.

If you would like me to do a video tutorial on how I created this project please leave me a comment here.
Happy Holidays my friends,

My Winter Wonderland

My Winter Wonderland was created with wooden bird houses, a chipboard hat box, my Darice Embossing Essentials folders, lace, ribbon, wooden fence, mica flakes for snow and LOTS of Stickles for the prefect sparkling Snow scene.

Light up your life

I recently bought three birdcages. Each one was a different color, yellow, black and one green. I decided to paint them all white. I then went looking to buy some battery operated Christmas lights to place inside but I couldn’t find any with white wires. I knew the green wires would show to much inside the cages so I took white paint and painted the wires. I wanted to give the cages a soft glow when lit and I needed a way to hold the lights in place. I tried a couple different kinds of materials and found that white small netting worked the best. I added flowers and lace to one of the cages, it seemed to need something added to the top, this cage also became my favorite with its changing colored lights.
Thanks for peeking in on me.
