12 Days of Holiday Projects - Day 3



Welcome to Day 3 of The 12 Days of Holiday Projects Blog Event. Several crafty blog friends decided to post one holiday project a day for 12 days - just for fun.  The projects will be anything crafty like cards, ornaments, wreaths, advent calendars, etc… We’re posting projects we made using products we like and hope they will give you some inspiration for your own holiday craft projects. You will find links to all the other participating bloggers below. Hopefully you can find time to look at the other blogs and leave comments on any that inspire you. If we inspire you to make something please let us know - we would love to see. Happy Holiday Crafting!!

The project I'm sharing for Day 3 is a set of 3 ornaments. To make these I used a large ornament die from Sizzix and cut it out in Grungboard. I painted the tops with Tim Holtz Brushed Pewter Crackle Paint. I painted the colors on the ornaments using Claudine Helmuth acrylic paints and then I sprayed them with Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearls to give them a little sheen. Then, I used Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions stencils and the acrylic paints to paint on the images. When it dried I put Stickles in a matching color over the images. I love how colorful and fun these turned out. And, they were easy too. 



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will be able to visit the other ladies blogs and leave them some love. They've been working very hard on some amazing holiday projects to share with you.
