I’ve been having fun making ornaments and thought you might like to see my process.
Hope you have a wonderful day! 💚
I painted some holiday greenery for this project but you could use any painting for this. I may paint a few little birds next time…and I’m getting excited just thinking about it.
Last year I purchased a bunch of wood slice ornaments for some craft projects. I decided for this project to glue a small part of my painting to the wood. The watercolor paper was rather thick so I ended up using both double sided tape and Elmer’s glue to attach it.
Using my circle template I found a nice area of the painting to cut out for each ornament.
After attaching the painting to the wood ornament, I weighed it down with a couple heavy books for a few hours.
I just love these rustic ornaments, yay! 😊
The pretty green bow adds a sweet touch. I think they will make a nice gift.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, share a smile and shine on.
I’ve been having fun playing with paper and scissors lately. Today I have some joyful shapes created from Christmas cards. Sometimes I need to step away from the paint brush and allow myself the freedom to create in other ways.
I get excited playing with paper shapes and gluing together something new and beautiful. It just makes my heart sing.
These little guys make me smile every time I look at them. I plan to use them on a special card.
This flower just needs a stem. I have many options here… paint one, sketch one, or cut one out of paper.
These little birds happened by accident while cutting up this card.
Oh happy day! 😊
I was trying to cut out some leaves and I noticed that a few left over scraps looked like a bird. That inspired me to keep cutting more and more out the same way. After my happy dance, I cut out some little wings and glued them on.
I just love the random colors and patterns on the birds. They too will probably find their way to a pretty card or maybe a new collage piece.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Keep playing and having fun. Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
