Hello Nomad Friends. It's hot, damn hot!! But it's still July and the Christmas spirit is flowing nicely. I have made a Rudolf ornament, and it's sooooo cute! I know it's an ornament, rather than a tag cos I decorated the backside to look exacerly like the front, so as he spins idly on the tree he will be cute from every direction....... I said to my man 'look, isn't it cute!!'. He gave me the look! Not the 'Wow darling, that's amazing, what a fabulous artist you are!' look. The other one!! It's July, why are you making Christmas things?? Well, Jul i Juli of course! We artists are so misunderstood.
Can you feel the bling tonight ♫🎝♬♫♫🎝 OK, it's not night, it's a beautiful sunny HOT day. Did I mention the heat??
To make a da rudolf I cut two pieces of pizza box and two pieces of Papirdesign Tur I Skogen patterned paper using a bigz reindeer die. I wanted it to be a sturdy little ornament, hence the double pizza, and the same back and front so two pieces of the patterned paper.
I used these half pearls and snowflake chipboards, also from Papirdesign. I wanted red pearls so coloured two of the cream ones with Hot Chili promarker.
I used Sunflower promarker to colour the antlers and also go around the edge of my ornament. I added glitter glue to the antlers and a bit of red ric rak ribbon around his neck. I stuck the red pearls on his nose and the blingy snowflake on his belly. Then I thought about a hanger....... A hole in the head seemed a bit unseasonal so I decided to pierce his ear instead!! A piece of christmas ribbon and a blingy brad with a little bit of glue for added security and hopefully Rudolf will be hanging around for years. For the brad on the back I cut off the little leggies and just glued it on his ear over the end of the ribbon.
Thanks for dropping by. I'm off to find a huge ice cream. Hugz
