Hi, friends! The new year festive mood is gradually sneaking into my house! I hope you have a little ‘festive mood’ as well, and you have begun preparing for the major holidays of the year! Specially for the Lindy’s blog, I have decorated three Christmas ball ornaments.
I used plastic balls which I covered with glued tissue paper, then coated with white gesso and painted with Starburst Sprays from Lindy’s.
I used a variety of colors including: Starbursts Sprays in Grab a Guy Gold, Poinsettia Red Gold, Ponderosa Pines Olive, TiffanyLou Blue; Glitz Spritz in Medieval Gold and Brushed Nickel and a hint of Moon Shadow Mist Golden Doubloons Vintage Spray.
The balls are decorated with die-cut elements, which were covered with two layers of embossing powder (Poinsettia Red Green EP, King Midas Gold EP, Tannenbaum Green Gold EP, Madonna Robe Blue Gold EP). The balls also have touches of embossing powder applied over images stamped images with the essential glue pad.
Christmas balls must shine, so that they will reflect the lights on the Christmas tree, so I’ve also glued on a few rhinestones, glitter and sequins.
This is my first experience of decorating balls. Initially I wanted to decorate them so they looked even richer. But while making these I realised that they look perfect as they are with just a little bling against the beautiful colors of the Lindy’s sprays. Therefore, I have added only a little bit of extra decor :)))
Now I’m waiting for when we put up the Christmas tree, because I want to hang them :)))
The process of decorating I filmed on video and now share it with you. You can watch it below or on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.
