Nov. AIR project - Monterey Pine Wood Shapes

Novermber's first AIR project is Monterey Pine Wood Shapes. 
John provided generous amount of pieces, so I've played with them several way, ended up the ornaments.

Authentique Paper Scatter Joy series
Hero Arts rubber stamp (I found it credited 1985-still good!)
Flat back pearls and rhinestones
Brass color filigree

How To

Apply Brilliance ink around sides of Monterey Pine Wood shapes.

I used several colors randomly.

Apply Creative Medium in Vintage on the surface of wood.

Adhere paper right away.  Creative Meidium dries very quick.

Trim excess paper
turn over - Creative Medium gives a little vintage color already.

all pieces done

Sand off edges

Make more vintage look

For more vintage look, ink Memento Peanut Brittle with Ink Blusher

coloring is done

On some pieces, I stamped snowflake (Hero Arts) with Brilliance Sterling Silver

Apply more Creative Medium in Vintage to seal the piece

Adhere onto filigree piece
Then decorate with flat back pearls and rhinestones

Attach chain for hanger
 That's It!  they are very light weight and small, so great for table top trees or gift wrapping.
Also, instead of attaching chain, just adhere to gift box will be great addtion for special one!

I hope you enjoy the idea. Thank you for visiting!!
