Tree Baubles.




A few photos today,  of tree decorations.
They were made in the same way and  have  reached their destinations.
So I can now show you  some of them.



The picture on the right  shows the reverse side on some baubles.
Both sides were painted with acrylic cream paint.
The Santa image  and words are from Stampendous stamps.
Additional colours are Distress inks,
Vintage photo, Barn Door and Bundled Sage.





Some were edged with Antique gold embossing powder.
They were all sprayed  with a coating of Silver Spray Sparkle and Shine. This make it real difficult to get a reasonable photo.



I  had some wax left from another project and used it to cover Santa's beard on this bauble.

Thank you for taking time to stop by.
 I hope you are enjoying the build up to Christmas and are not rushed off your feet like I seem to be.
I vote for at least a 28 hour day and an 8 day week,  at this time of year.

Your bubbles are lovely, as I know because one is hanging here by me! Thanks again. They were really difficult to photograph, that's true, I had to go out on the balcony! Hugs, Valerie
