I must say I do love Christmas ornaments and it is well know that if someone asks me what I would love as a gift, I always say a Christmas ornament!
I love decorating the tree. Each year I unwrap my treasure and happy memories of the person who gave it to me come flooding back. For me, as well as being my Christmas tree, it is also my memory tree!
Although my three beautiful ornaments could stand alone as stunning gifts, I decided to do a wall display that I could take out each year and hang for some sparkling Christmas cheer!
I started by selecting the papers for each window. On one of the scenes I used a Kaisercraft snowflake template and texture past, while the paste was still wet I sprinkled with glitter ….. after all it is Christmas!
Once these were marked up and cut to size I painted the frame with Kaiser paint in white. A few coats gave a lovely crisp finish. I then stuck the decorative papers cut earlier in position and stuck the frame down.
Now the fun part!!
For this little vignette, I placed a gorgeous photo of Abbey on a matt and decorated with collectables and stickers. ‘
The reindeer and sleigh are from the ‘Wooden Flourish Sleigh Scene’ – aren’t they simply gorgeous? I spritzed the wooden items with white Kaisermist to soften their look and sprinkled with micro fine gold glitter.
Kaisercrafts new release Pearl string in gold were perfect for the reigns.
In this little vignette, I cut a second Santa out and popped him up. You cannot see the effect so well here but it is wonderful and three dimensional.
I love how that little collectable diamond looks so real …. if only!!
The Christmas bauble is my favourite ornament. After painting it white I covered the edge in rhinestones.
The gold foil that sits in the background catches the light beautifully! Did I tell you that you get two ornaments in each pack?
I will definately be making the additions into gifts and rhinestones will feature loudly!
I painted the ‘XMAS’ title with Kaisercrafts gold paint. It is a beautiful paint; such a beautiful shimmery colour!
While it was still wet I sprinkled on some micro fine glitter ….. of course!
