MAMM #5 - Ornaments

Happy Monday to you all!  Wow what a weekend I had.  On Saturday and Sunday my mom and I were are craft shows.  We had a booth and were selling our crafts...this year we had an amazing display board for all of our cards that my amazing hubby made for us!  I took pictures, and will share them with you this week! :) We had a successful weekend and are looking very forward to the De Pere High School craft fair the end of this month!

Today is Make a Mess Monday (MAMM) over at SCACD!  Oh how I LOVE  making my messes!  Our challenge this month was to Decorate Ornaments using my ultimate FAVORITE product Viva Decor Precious Metals!  Seriously if you haven't ordered any Precious Metals from Susana you REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED to get some!  These are the most amazing metallic paints that I have ever worked with!  I still am amazed every time that I use them that they only take ONE COAT to cover your surface!  My hubby was even surprised at how awesome they are!

 Here I took a wooden snowflake ornament and covered it with Viva Decor Blue Azure Precious Metals paint.  This is my ultimate favorite color, as the blue is so beautiful but it also have a gorgeous silver tint to it.  When you paint with this color on wood the silver in the color defines the wood grains.  I absolutely love this one!

Then to accent the snowflake's edges I took my Viva Decor Glitter Liner in Hologram and outlined the whole snowflake...love the extra glitter and sparkles!  What I really love about the Viva Glitter Liners is that they hold their shape when you use them....meaning that when I made the edging around the snowflake it creates a "ridge" adding dimension.  Love it!  Then I took my Viva Decor Light Blue Pearl Pen and added some custom sized pearls that were a perfect fit for my snowflake!

 My second ornament today is again taking a wooden ornament and this time painting it with Viva Decor Blackberry Precious Metals.  Like the Blue Azur the Blackberry also has that gorgeous tint of silver in it!  This is another of my favorite colors from these paints! 

 How about these flowers?  These are the NEW Petaloo Velvet Hydrangeas!  Oh my word are they absolutely gorgeous and add the perfect amount of elegance to this ornament.  The flower arrangement is then finished using some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers consisting of 4mm closed rosebuds, mulberry GypsophilaRose leaves, and pearl sprays.  To accent the ornament my Viva Decor Rose Paper Pen was used to again add some custom sized pearls.


I hope you have enjoyed.  Make sure you head over to the SCACD Blog to check out what the other Messy Girls have made! :)
