I love staying home for Christmas. We get up early, open prezzies, stay in our pj’s for most of the day, do a big puzzle, watch a movie and just have a good time together. Then we go visit family a few days after, when it’s not as crazy busy.
I made these little ornaments with ‘home’ as my inspiration. Sadly, it doesn’t snow here. In fact, it was 80 degrees today, which is just insane. Really? It’s December for crying out loud!! Even my poor tortoise is confused. He came out of hibernation today to bask in the sun.
In case you are interested, these are made with 300lb watercolor paper, that I lightly scored with a craft knife and broke into little 2.5″ x 3 inch pieces.
* The snow is made with light molding paste, then sprinkled with glitter.
* The houses and trees are made with DAS paper clay (my new favorite crafting material), then painted with acrylic paint.
* Because these are part of my Creative Color Challenge swap, I only used green, red, white, black and gold colors.
I am also using these for Amy’s Ornament swap, which my husband says is cheating. It’s not, is it?
Lastly, I always give one of my ornaments away, so please leave a comment and I will pick a winner by Friday. Good Luck!!
The winner is Sue May!! Congrats~
