Christmas Ornament

Sarah here today with a festive ornament using the Unicorn Christmas ribbon.

To create this mixed media star bauble I started out with some gesso to prep the ornament blank. I added layers of texture and crackle paste to add some interest and layers of cheesecloth and tulle.

Then I added mini pine cones, moulded clay shapes and a snowflake again coated in gesso. With some paints and spray in blues and greens I added a touch of colour diluted down with water from a spray bottle.

Once dry I added flowers in pinks and blue to match my ribbon and then coated the ornament in white paint, snowflake and unicorn pastes by Prima to add a frosty effect.

Finally I added my ribbon followed by some pink seam binding in a bow at the top.
You can check out the process in detail in the video linked here.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Crafty Day :)
