Another Christmas bauble

Goodly morrow my friends.
I trust that you are all well and enjoying a lovely creative weekend.
On Wednesday this week my daughter and I had a day off together so we wandered down to Folkstone to spend a bit of time down by the harbour and meander through the creative quarter. Having recently invested in a new camera my daughter wanted to see what it could do. So I toddled along with my camera too which is nowhere near as fancy but I still had fun. I won't bore you with tons of pics, but I do like this one of the Creative Quarter.

Also this week I have finished another bauble for this year's Christmas tree using another of the Creative Expressions MDF baubles.

 I had a bauble already covered with paper and glitter. It just needed further developing.

I also had a pile of "left on my desk" gilding flakes from my Inspire project.
So, I added some random areas of glue onto the bauble and  wiped up the flakes from the desk.
 Then I added some Quinacridone Violet and Pthalo Turquoise to the edges.
 I tied a ribbon to the top and then used Liquid Glass to add some raised detail to one side.
 Once it had dried I used Treasure Brass to highlight the pattern.
 Then, to finish the bauble I added a metal flower.


It was another fun project to do.

The gilding flakes added such perfect shininess to your ornament! I love finding good uses for scraps. :)
