Before the holidays I spent some time making some paintings using the techniques I have learned from taking a couple of online classes by Suzi Blu as well as from her book, "Mixed-Media Girls with Suzi Blu". I found the process somewhat challenging because I didn't have any scrapbook paper in my house! I have thousands of sheets of scrapbook paper, but all at my old house. So I improvised with the background. I wish I would have added some type of wax treatment to these. Maybe next time.
You can't tell very well from the photo but this painting has some great texture to it. She turned out to be my favorite.
Join Michelle as she creates a Christmas tree made from a paper mach cone. At some point this project was going to be fabulous. As it turned out, it wasn't so great. Certainly a one Christmas season craft. But if the project is executed right it could be really cute. Hopefully you can take this idea and make something even better! To follow along grab these supplies:

A while back I ran across a post on the A Beautiful Mess website about how to make clay ornaments. Now, of course I know how to make these. They are super easy. But A Beautiful Mess made them look so simple and elegant. These are not generally two words I associate with Sculpey clay. So, I thought I would give it a try. Here is what I came up with. Thanks A Beautiful Mess for the great inspiration!
I did do a few things differently. I couldn't find a cookie cutter so I cut the shapes out with scissors. It worked. I forgot to put holes in them before baking. No problem, I drilled holes later. I felt like drawing with a marker, so I decorated with a Sharpie instead of paint. I also wanted to protect the front so I sealed them with a clear acrylic sealer (which caused some of the marker to bleed.) Super fun! Super easy! And they look great.
