A Joyful Christmas Decor for Tres Jolie Kits

Happy Sunday, everyone! Have you seen the Tres Jolie December Mixed Media kit?  Take a look: And this is what I came up with using the kit: I started out by using the Fimo modeling clay in the Prima Marketing Silver Bells Decor Mould, and letting them dry.  Once nearly dry, I removed the ornaments.  They came out great, except I accidentally smooshed in one of the faces on the bell, but otherwise, I was impressed with the crispness of the design from clay! I mixed the red paint with some black gesso, and painted both of the ornaments.  Once dry, I dry brushed some of the silver paint, and while still somewhat damp, I quickly added a lot of the green mica powder from the kit, and smashed it onto the entire ornaments.  I also used some black pigment powder to balance out the iridescent green mica. I used a stippling brush to remove the excess powders, then finished them off with some Prima Marketing white gold metallic wax, which really makes the designs on the ornaments pop! Check out these closeups of the ornaments: I decided to use a wood panel instead of the canvas that came with the kit.  It's from Hampton Art that I picked up at JoAnn's a long while back. I glued the ornaments to the panel, then I added a few things from my Christmas stash including a transfer of a vintage Christmas image and a few "vintage" Prima Marketing flowers.  To complete the look of the ornaments, I added some gold bows and gold chain from some old costume jewelry. Thanks for stopping by the blog! Don't forget that we are having a design team call- check past posts for details!
