How about some Christmas projects?
Happy Wednesday! With the view from my craft room looking like this last weekend,
Silver Bullet Professional.
My next project is just for me:
I purchased this shadow box at Goodwill quite some time ago. It was pretty hideous, but had great potential. I painted it with a nice yellow green acrylic craft paint, dry brushed on a bit of darker green, and added some brown antiquing wax. I gave it a good buff once the wax had dried, and I really love the effect! The letters and the base for the vintage ornament wreath were cut with my trusty Silver Bullet. I used some junk pieces of foam that were laying around to pop up all of the elements from the vintage newspaper background.
I am very excited to find a place to hang this new piece. It has all of my favorite Christmas things. Joy, Green, vintage glass ornaments, (rescued from someone's trash pile!) vintage paper, and cardstock. I just need to add a hanger to the back, and it will be good to go.
Thanks for stopping by to see some of what I've been working on. Hope your week is filled with joy and good things!
