I can't believe that it's already week 3 of the Out of a Hat Creations Christmas in October and this week's challenge is to create a Christmas Decoration. I am combining this challenge with the December Bramford Crop girl's swap which was set by Nancy and is a light bulb.
I started by adding alcohol ink to the glass and silver screw fixing of the light bulb and next using Claudine Hellmuth matt multi-medium covered the coloured glass with a white mulberry paper with a gold fleck and then added another coat of multi-medium on top making the paper transparent before sprinkling chunky gold glitter on top. I added a torn strip of mulberry paper around the middle of the bulb and covered it with a gold ribbon tied in a bow. I added a sentiment handwritten on white cardstock and covered with glossy accents. Finally I added several punched snowflakes with a blob of gold stickles in the middle and wire to hang the bulb.
Running out of daylight hours at home, I had to take the finished piece to work today to try and get a photo during daylight without my flash...bring back summer please!
