I love ornaments and candles in decorative holders during Christmas and so I couldn't resist combining my painting and jewelry making supplies to make decorations.
I should probably also tell you that since I grew up in Florida I have never gotten the chance to really get into the snow thing. What do I mean? Well, I have always had a great desire dating back to my kiddyhood to make a snowman. Obviously, south florida doesn't know snow so one frustrated snow maker here. I've finally solved the problem! I've indulged in polymer clay and paired that with crystal bicone beads, jewelry findings,wood and acrylic paints and have made my snowman....a snowman ornament https://www.etsy.com/listing/163582883/clay-snowman-ornament-painted-clay?.
As for the rest, well, I've taken heavy watercolor paper (300 lb) and using archival inks, acrylic colors have made ornaments for the tree that come with individual handmade (yes, by me of course) beaded silver wire hangers. So much fun! https://www.etsy.com/listing/163175918/red-birds-handpainted-paper-ornament?. But I couldn't stop there......I have some sandollars, large size that wre just begging to be made into ornaments too. so...https://www.etsy.com/listing/163077886/painted-santa-sand-dollar-ornament-santa?.
Now, I'm working on painting candle holders (i.e. glass jars,etc.), making candles for them and
more ornaments. Christmas is fun!
