Swirly and Sparkly Ornament

Wishing you all a holiday season of joy and time to spend with family and friends and unwind! 

We celebrate Christmas, and I was inspired to make one more ornament for our tree.
I found this great wood ornament from Kaisercraft in my stash, which inspired me to create.

I love my new DecoArt Premium Acrylic paints! As you can see here, the colors are rich and deep. I painted all sides of the ornament with Ultramarine Blue.

Next, I dabbed on lighter blues in Cobalt Teal hue and Cobalt Turquoise hue, along with Titanium White.

I wanted to go over the under layers with transparent paints, and used Quinacridone Violet and Cobalt Teal hue. I like how they are mixing.

Next step was to spray the White Shimmer Mist on both sides.

Then, I took the Metallic Shimmering Silver and wiped around the edges and on the top, just using my finger.

Time to add the sparkle! Decoupage and Crystal Glamour Dust will do the trick!

I finished the ornament off with a piece of sari ribbon.
