I am excited to be taking part in this Holiday Ornament Blog Hop sponsored by Smoothfoam and the Robin's Nest!
There are quite a few Designers participating, so be sure to hop on over to the Robin's Nest Blog for a complete list of projects and links!
My project today was inspired by my Gran, my maternal Grandmother, who was extremely crafty!
Working in small areas, I kept attaching the Dew Drops to the Ball and then the patterns just starting flowing and soon my entire Ball was covered - in less than an hour!
My Pick N Place Pencil from KOOL TAK was perfect tool for this project. It looks like an ordinary white pencil, but when you sharpen it the point is sticky. This stickiness aids in picking up small items like the Dew Drops, so you can get accurate placement on your project. I finished by tying a loop and a bow in some red organza ribbon and gluing it inside the small opening in the center of the ball.
Above are a few of the vintage ornaments that my Gran made in the 60's and 70's with foam shapes, straight pins, beads, sequins and trims. They have always been amazing works of art to me and I treasure them dearly. She was definitely one crafty lady!
