I had meant to start posting ornaments from my collection, of all handmade, artist made ornaments but I have bee so sick the past week I did not even get started. So. I’ll post three today to make up for lost time and also one that I designed last year for sale in my etsy shop.
This is one available in my shop:
From my collection this one is made by artist “Dolly Gagging”
This one is by artist Diane Redmore Moore:
and this one is by artist Carla Naron:
I do so enjoy my unique ornaments!
These little burglars are easy to make! They are hybrids, I used two different push molds that I made from two different dolls. First I used the body/torso mold and then a separate face mold so that the face will be out of proportion with the body. There are made with paper clay, first dust your push mold with corn starch or flour, I use a fluffy paint brush for this. After your separate pieces have dried attach the head to the torso with more paper clay. when dry, cover with tissue paper and glue of your choice, I use perfect paper adhesive. I gesso’d the faces and painted them with acrylic paint. The fabric wings were purchased at Michaels craft store and adhered to the bodies with e 6000. the wire is left intact so they can be tied to a christmas tree limb and they look very pretty!
amaryllis progress !
And I did not even get out half the cards I intended, so I offer up the high res image I used for my Christmas card. She has the perfect spoiled brat pouty expression, “YOu better not pout”!! I have uploaded this image high res so if anyone wants to use it or have a copy for an ornament, just cut out her shape and punch a hole at the top after you have printed her. Hang her on your tree, she looks cute. I put red wings behind mine.
I simply can not believe its the 25th, and another year is almost over! However you celebrate, whatever your religion or not, have a joyous holiday!
