Christmas handmade ornaments and blog ornament blog hop.

Sharing a few of my Christmas handmade ornaments. So fun to do!
Little air dry clay ornament in the style of Michelle Allen. I made it to go with Children's book I have been finishing. Nikki Nissa and the Christmas Star. I have a page from the book below. I am on my iPad and I don't know how to move the photo without key short cuts





I used green bottle brush trees I bleached out. Then I made gessoed cotton cloth that I then stamped with snowflake. I also added a netting to the wings.  I printed out faces from a photo copied and photoshop page I made from scanned images of my faces. I cut them out and glued them to the foam silver beads from a Christmas swag. I made cloth tea dye and gathered neck collar

I glued the heads and trees together painted the bases and glittered the trees by painting them white and glittered them while still wet.
I have a few for sale if your interested I can get one to you. I can repost on etsy.

This is a page from my book I am still working....it has been a large project as it s my first.


I made this post to join this fun Christmas Christmas Ornament Blog Party!
