Joyous & Kiwi Lane Photo Ornament
I wanted a way to showcase this year's Christmas family photo--at first I thought of some sort of mini album although I only had one main photo I wanted to showcase. So then I thought of creating an ornament that would serve as a 'frame' to my photo. Well after much debating I ended up with a hybrid version of a mini album & ornament--an orna-mini! However, this ornament is not really meant to hang on the Christmas tree--this little orna-mini looks best sitting on a small photo frame easel right on top of the fireplace mantel--& that's exactly where it is at this very moment.
All papers used are from Authentique's 'Joyous' collection & the entire ornament was created with the use of the 'Christmas Accessory' templates by Kiwi Lane.
This second colorful ornament was created with the use of acrylic & alcohol inks. I traced the smaller ornament template onto a piece of clear acrylic & cut it out. Next I adhered designer paper to what is going to be the back of my acrylic ornament. Since acrylic is transparent there's no need to place a second piece of designer paper--just use 2-sided paper & both side are instantly complete!
To complete my ornament I applied some clear dry adhesive along the edges with a thin paint brush & applied some Diamond Dust. You can make a whole set of ornaments to decorate any tree with this technique & no two would be alike.
Thanks for stopping by & for those of you that are in the cold season along with me--stay warm! Enjoy the rest of the week...
