Quickity Split Collage Christmas Ornaments December 21 2015, 2 Comments

Happy Holidays!  Today I am sharing a little project to make an ornament using the papers from Tangie’s Quickity Split Sweet December Collection.  As a base I used 2 1/2" Wood Round Ornament Cutouts from Craftparts.com.  They have inexpensive wood products that are fun to collage and paint.  I prepared them by sanding slightly.

Then I cut my papers from the Quickity Split Sweet December Collection into randomly sized strips.

Next, I glued the strips in random combinations to each side of the ornaments using Matte Medium. After the medium dried, I gently sanded the edges.

On one side of each ornament, I used the Tim Holtz® Poinsettia Stencil and Dylusions red paint.  I also painted the sides with the same paint.  When dry, I outlined the poinsettia leaves with black pen.  I decided I wanted a little sparkle so I added red Stickles™Glitter Glue on the leaves.  On the back, I left the strips of paper plain and simply added rub on words from Tim Holtz® Remnant Rubs. Finally, I added red jute for hanging.

Below is a close up of one ornament.  The glitter doesn’t show as well on camera, but it adds some holiday sparkle.

Have an artsy holiday season,
