Gilded Christmas Ornaments

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Blogmas Day 3

I have had a super busy day today, my day Β started off with a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh, followed by late lunch with the boys, a couple of hours housework and then I headed up the garden to my shed to make things πŸ™‚

If you remember last week I featured Tags and Cards that were gilded with gilding flakes to make them look that wee bit special… well today I thought I would share some tree ornaments that I gilded too.

I took a paper mache reindeer and a glass clip on bird and turned them into lovely ornaments.. here are a couple of before and after pictures

The Reindeer

Glass Clip on Bird (it’s hard to see against the background.. I tried a few but they all looked the same πŸ™‚

I used Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter Glue as my adhesive and also some gilding flakes Chocolate Box and Yorkshire Dales.

Here is the Reindeer with his new coat

The Wee Wooden Tray

Hi everyone!

Something different from cards to share today… I altered a wee wooden tray for an upcoming workshop.. this is the before picture πŸ™‚

tray-3

If you would like to decorate one with me I will be at Stampers Grove on Saturday 10th December from 11am till 1pm. Β  they are perfect for that last minute Christmas gift, you can paint/embelish , then fill them with a whole host of festive goodies, wrap up in cellophane and you have a perfect tailor made christmas gift!

Here is the one I made today, this would be perfect filled with fruit teabags, coffee, and homemade shortbread biscuits..

tray-1

There are a lot of different things incorporated in this tray, I gilded the edges in gold leaf, Stamped and heat embossed the sides with embossing powder and lined the inside and sides with a gorgeous patterned paper.. the handles are bound in gorgeous twine

tray-2

I also took a picture outside, it is amazing how lighter it looks in natural lighting πŸ™‚
