Christmas Craft

My first attempt at a Christmas house decorations. I got carried away and forgot to take pictures as I went along.

First attempt

 I added two coats of gesso, pale blue and  followed by snowtex and glitter.
The Christmas tree came from a poundshop. It had to be cropped and chopped to fit in!! The baubles and bells were originally gold. I used silver alcohol ink to jazz them up a bit. All the other bits and pieces were made using my bigshot and various paints.  The lights nearly learnt to fly as they were fiddly to use!!

2nd attempt originally a black and gold house, not certain what I was going to use it for. I again used gesso, paint, glitter and alcohol inks. I was a bit more adventurous with my big shot cutting out more bits and pieces. 

They were fun to do.   Bev xxx
