I was delighted to be selected as Feature Artist at Anything But Cute Challenge Blog - really chuffed!
The details for the challenge are as follows:-
"Its Ornamental! With the holidays just around the corner, we would like you to create a mixed media ornament for you Christmas Tree or a Christmas decor item for you house or table"
The challenge hostess is Cec
What a fabulous and inspiring challenge! I wanted to do a Christmas decor item, because I like to place things "artfully" - group things together. (OK - the reality is, I group things together artfully, the banana knocks them all over (more than once) and starts moaning!)
I came up with this:-
Here is how it was done:-
Cut out a bit of card and shape it so it looks like icicles and glue it on the top of the frame then texture paste over the card and the inside of the frame and add glitter whilst its still wet. Cover the crown and ink both the crown and frame edges. Then use the same technique from the faux slides to go around the crown so it looks like soldering.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you will take part in the Anything but Cute Challenge - its such a lovely place to visit!
Finally - how can I let this week pass without saying that my prayers and thoughts are with Paris xxx
