Today's Bloggers Challenge was fun…make an ornament or home decoration for the holidays! I always love to make ornaments, but ran out of time before this challenge. However, I did make this Wall Art from the Level 2 Hostess Dasher Decor Elements! If you haven't used Stampin' Up!'s Decor Elements, you don't know what your are missing. We have some wonderful, fun holiday ones that make gift giving VERY easy! Snowflakes, Jingle All The Way, Calendar Countdown, Vintage Ornaments…or make your own with the Big Shot, favorite die and blank vinyl! They are quick and easy to put up. Well, I must admit, Dasher was a little more labor intensive because of his flourished antlers, but it only took about 1/2 hour to do.
If you've priced blank canvases, you know they can get expensive! I found a picture that was discounted a lot (probably because it was UGLY!), but I liked the edges of it…hard to see but the sides have a finished scroll type of pattern. I taped all the sides off, purchased some Matte finish spray paint in a Caramel color, then spray painted the front of the canvas, covering the picture that was on there.
When dry, I applied the Dasher Decor Elements. I love how the Chocolate Chip color POPS against the Caramel color. The lighter So Saffron background is my wall. He also comes in Black, White and Real Red which would be fun for the holidays, too! It's not too late to gather some orders and put together your own show to earn this Level 2 Hostess Gift…contact me today!
Have a wonderful weekend!
