A year ago in this POST, I shared that my son had gifted me a box of wooden ornaments. I painted some of them last year, and finally got around to painting the stars and snowflakes this year. It was harder to paint the stars and snowflakes because I didn't know what to do with them because of the shape. I didn't want to just paint them one solid color and throw glitter on them, so this is what I came up with.
For the stars, I painted them white then I stamped Christmas messages on all but three. Then I stamped a starry background using silver metallic ink. The snowman star I painted a very light grey so that the snowman would stand out. All the stamps are retired Stampin' Up!
This is what the ornaments looked like before they were painted.
The snowflakes were the hardest to try and figure out what to do with. I already have a lot of white, glitter snowflake ornaments so I wanted to do something different. I ended up using a pearlized drop paint called "Liquid Pearls" to create a 3D design on the ornaments. You simply squeeze the tube to create dots and lines. I used three different colors: gold, iridescent white, and a petal pink.
And here are the rest of the ornaments from the very same kit that I painted last year. You can get all the details in THIS POST.
I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I will be taking a blogging break to spend time with family and I will see again the week of January 8th!
Have a Great Day! Amy
