Christmas Ornament

Hello ! A very happy December greeting to you all. Gayle here, sharing my "Shine and Sparkle" creation. I've made a table or mantlepiece decoration, from the FLOWERS, PAPERS and PEARLS in my ZEUS AND ZOE KIT.

It started out as a "foam ball". I covered it in tiny squares of Christmas paper from my Zeus and Zoe kit. It was then sprayed with  Glimmer Mist and then, for a bit of extra shine, I gave it a coat of pearlescent paint.

The top is covered with embossed paper which was painted silver and then a little "Rub & Buff" added. The crowning glory is a gorgeous white and gold Poinsettia flower from my Zeus and Zoe kit. I've used one on the top and another on the base.

A jewelled pin to hold the banner, another crystal dangling off the ball, some gorgeous pearls from my Zeus and Zoe kit and then I've set it on a doily with some supporting card underneath.

I hope this will inspire you to join in our December "Shine and Sparkle" Challenge. Find all the details HERE.
