Merry Christmas

Here is my latest Christmas ornament. I used jewel tone sheet papers to match my jewel tone strips and mixed punched elements with my quilling. (check side panel for ordering) I added seed beads and Swarovski crystals (check the side panel for ordering) for a bit more drama. This color palette is a first for me. I go to an ornament exchange every year and last year a lady handed me the one she got and said, "Here I'd like to see it next year done up the way you do them." I usually buy a dozen from my local glass blower for custom orders and this exchange. I use Crafter's Pick Ultimate glue to adhere the elements. This product has never failed me. It goes on like Elemer's washable (white and liquidy) and dries like rubber cement (clear and a bit rubbery) When working with glass that is transparent, you don't want to see glue on the back of the design.

I love the jewel papers. In fact so much so we added them to our samples we send out with the orders. I especially love the blue. Have you seen the other special papers put out by both Paplin and Lake City? They are to die for!! I did a rooster back in the 70's but I think I'm going to do a new one using the various special papers that are now available.
