Mason Jar Lid Ornament 1
12 Tags of Christmas are back for the 2014 year. Linda is off and running with her tag inspirations over at The Funkie Junkie and everyone has until December 21st to play along.
The fun in playing along is that you get to see a gorgeous sample inspiration tag, made by Linda herself, and then you create ANYTHING you want; that is of course INSPIRED by her tag, and explain what and why in your post.
Firstly, I was captivated by the vintage blue green of that bow and so I've used that color on the lid. As usual, everything she includes is so wonderful and it was difficult to eliminate anything, but I was drawn to creating a vintage snowflake, 25, tree that echoes her silver charm, Merry Christmas and of course, Santa and the reindeer. All paper elements were cut on the Silhouette Cameo and colored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and then powder embossed for stiffness.
The plastic CHEAP snowflake was bought in a set of 6 from the The Dollar Tree and I dabbed it with a light coat of Gesso and then painted with Distress inks as well. I found that drying the snowflake with a heat tool shrunk and curved the snowflake to a perfect size and gave it a very neat worn and used look.
There will be 11 more of these lids that I'll be showing over the next few weeks, but it would be so much fun if you played along and created one of a kind ornaments for your tree or a gift for someone.
I'm so happy you stopped by today. I hope you found this inspiring.
Big huge hugs and happy crafting to YOU!
