'Tis the Season 31

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 17, 2014 @ 10:05 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! Today I have a few holiday projects to share featuring pretty patterned papers from the Pion Design Days of Winter collection along with sentiments from Starry Christmas:
First up is a paper mache ornament that I painted using chalk paint, followed with a coat of antique wax then embellished with lots of handmade glitter coated die cut roses: 
Next up is a greeting card featuring one of the many elegant Days of Winter images:
also embellished with a handmade glitter coated die cut rose:

For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Fusion challenge (sketch only):
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit ~ I hope you enjoy my projects as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Be Sweet ;)

I don't even know what antique wax is, but you should be the spokesperson! That ornament could sell for hundreds of dollars--one of the best I've ever seen! I adore the roses--need to try using my dies with printed paper. The card is gorgeous! Everything you make is over the top fabulous!
