Merry Christmas!
Topic: Photo

For Christmas Day I decided to share with you some of the decorations in my house. I'm not ALWAYS in the studio!

I have angels collected from various sets, gifts, bargains, and some handmade. I gathered some together for this display on the mantle over the fireplace.


A snow village made of plastic canvas was made for me by a friend in exchange for some artwork I made for her. I have some fake snow that I sometimes use but this year placed it with fun-foam snowflakes in a trio of colors and over a translucent plastic drape imprinted with icicles.


The third display starts out as just a chest with a white cloth and a christmas candle in a holder. As the season progresses each card received is added to the table. This sits just inside my front door so all visitors can see it.


And finally, the last set of Christmas cards made this season. These I share as my Christmas greeting to you.

And so, Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Holiday Leftovers
Topic: New Work

Gotcha! We are NOT talking 'food leftovers'!

The snowmen are cut from a length of wired-edge ribbon. The blue borders are torn from the inside lining of an envelope from last Christmas. They came with the silver foil snowflakes. I added three silver peel-off snowflakes to each.

A Trio of Christmas Wishes
Topic: New Work

A little Christmas cheer that celebrates our soldiers. This 3D is framed up by a sticker border from (and you've heard this before) a dollar store sticker sheet.

Hark the Herald Angels We Have Heard on High
Topic: New Work

No matter how this is scanned or photographed the dark green background comes up as black. Take my word for it - it IS green!

The angels are a 3D sheet I printed off a website I found. 

You truly don't get to see the effect of these 3D cards unless you are viewing them first-hand. The camera seems to flatten everything.

Simplicity
Topic: New Work

Sometimes simple can be beautiful! I printed this background paper from the Epson site over a year ago! I finally cut it down into 4 cards. This one only got a single text sticker added (from a Dollar store sheet). 

Sorry about the camera flash glare. It washes out the sticker color.

Odd Mix
Now Playing: aren't the 'wings' at Christmas usually on angels?
Topic: New Work

I don't remember butterflies ever being used as a Christmas card element before, but this 3D illustration features three of them on a poinsettia wreath. OK, I'll go with it.

I printed in two different sizes and used a backing of striped scrapbook paper for the smaller one.

Deck the Halls
Topic: Some Backlog

When we were first married (almost 34 years ago) there wasn't a lot of money for things like Christmas ornaments. So I strung popcorn and made cookies to hang on the tree and made some paper decorations. That first year I made the woven birds that I have instructions for on my website.

For several years I made an additional set of a different style of ornament every year. I stopped when my tree got too full! Over the years some have been lost to attrition (the blown eggs, for instance) and some just did not last at all (dough ornaments tend to MOLD in Oregon).

But I do still have most of them left. Here are some of the handmade ornaments off my Christmas tree:

These are styrofoam balls with 4 pieces of Christmas fabric attached using Mod-Podge. Fancy trim covers the seams and is held on with sewing pins. I made three different styles using different patterns of fabric.

Christmas light bulbs are given antlers with pipe cleaner, a nose of pom-pon and two google eyes. A thread is used for a hanger. All assembly is done with a heat gun.

For these I started with standard glass balls (red and green). On the surface of water in a plastic tub I sprayed acrylic paint, first white, then red, then gold. With a skewer I made patterns in the paint and then dipped the balls down into it and hung them to dry. I added ribbon bows to the top.

These very simple angels are made with a length of ribbon, a binder clip from the office supply store, and a pony bead. Easy-Peasy!

These musical scrolls are Christmas hymns reduced to fit on a 1/4 sheet of buff colored paper. Then I lightly sprayed with gold paint and curled the corners. Gold metallic cord is hot-glued to the back for hanging.

These are from the VERY early days! I don't have instructions for these anymore but they use 3 inch ribbon, pipe cleaner, a bead, tinsel and a bit of narrow ribbon.

This is probably the most recent set made. They are teabag folding using black and copper printed wrapping paper. I made the folds on both sides of the ornament so they are reversible. They hang with a loop of narrow black ribbon.

I seem have misplaced a box of ornaments as I cannot find my drums made from cut-down frozen juice cans, velvet ribbon, pony beads, toothpicks and gold spray paint. I can't remember what else is in that box besides the wreaths crocheted on milk jug rings that my mom made for me and some ornaments from swaps. Hmmmm.....

More Mandallas
Now Playing: ...of a different color
Topic: New Work

I had such fun putting these together. They are the same pattern as the blue and white from yesterday but look like a snowflake on top of a poinsettia!

The curly green background is part of the original design. I mounted on this tattered plaid paper and selected from the 4 provided coordinating greetings.

3D Mandallas
Topic: New Work

These mandallas were designed with  multiple layers and are cut and mounted using silicone. After this I went around the edge of each element with fine glitter glue.

 Don't they look smashing?

The cutting sheets come with a selection of four greetings in coordinating colors.

Snowflakes Falling
Now Playing: a cadre of cards
Topic: New Work

 

While you've all been watching a showing of the stained glass tissue windows, I've been making Christmas cards. The groupings today started as a book of photos of real snowflakes. Beautiful illustrations!

The first grouping are cards on which I used some sort of background paper. 

This next grouping are ones that use a single snowflake to fill the front of the card. 

The final group is cards where a grouping of 2, 3, or 4 illustrations are used in mosaic.

In each case I went over the snowflakes with 'Stikles' and finished each card with a gold peel-off greeting.
