Ornaments, Baubles and Bells....Oh My!

Hi there, I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Things around my house are pretty crazy in preparation of the upcoming holidays. I hope things aren't too crazy for you!

Today Papercraft Star opened another challenge! This week your challenge is to include a bell or ornament somewhere on your project, and they have provided us with this beautiful photo as inspiration. (photos are always use if you choose)

I decided to take this challenge literally by creating a couple of ornaments.

I used a glass ball ornament I purchased at Michael's some time ago as my base. I then printed Victorian Ads II by The House Across The Bay on tissue paper (I simply taped the tissue paper to printer cardstock and ran it through my printer) and mod podged it on in sections. After the ornament was dry, I sprayed them with Iridescent Gold glimmer mist to add a little shimmer.

Once that dried I decorated the ornaments with some seam binding I colored with my new Lindy's Starburst sprays, some elements cut from holiday picks and a feather for a little flair!

I think they are beautiful and I hope you enjoyed my post today!

Hop on over to the Papercraft Star blog and play along with us. You have until 6:00am EST on Monday December 19th to link up your projects for your chance to win!

Oh my goodness Regan I almost did the same thing! I was afraid to run the tissue paper through my printer though. Glad to know you can do that, because these came out so beautiful!
