Christmas is nearly upon us! I don't know about you but this year I am all about the handmade gift! I am getting sick of how Christmas is becoming all about buying people "stuff" that has no meaning whatsoever.
Recently I went to Michael's craft/art store and purchased these lovely little ornaments to decorate.
I painted the ornaments first with acrylic paint and then collaged images I cut out from my hand-painted papers. Next I added some details with payne's gray and white colored paint. I am going to try to finish some more today- I still need to loop a pretty ribbon through the top so I can hang them.
Little red bird
This one was inspired by some of Henri Matisse's paper cut- outs:
Another little red bird
What are you making this holiday season?
