“Twas the Night Before Christmas” Tree Decoration

Hurrah… back in the workshop tonight, i’ve been m.i.a. for a bit my hubby picked up some awful virus that floored him and I’ve been doing my nursey bit 😉

My workshop is in dire need of a good tidy up… but after standing ironing for 6 hours today, I just couldnt face it!

Tonight’s creation was made entirely out of bits n bobs that were lying around my desk 🙂

Its a hanging decoration, this will be going on my Christmas tree next month

It all started with a wee bit of bare chipboard…. one third of a page of a $1 chipboard mini album

I coated the chipboard piece with Light green Acrylic Paint, dried it with the heat tool, then I mixed the two paints below to create a top coat 🙂
