Christmas Baubles!!!

Good morning :)
I have a Christmas ornament to share with you all.
First I want to share the inspiration from Pixie Hill. so awesome!
Here is my take

Mine are plastic. I could not find the glass baubles that Nichola used. 
I love how they turned out and can't wait to give them to my Family!
Happy Crafting!

I almost forgot to mention the candle from the dollar store.
I used a tree line die cut in white, glued around the candle.
To finish it off, I added white glitter to the bottom.

Here is a photo of the candle turned on.
Have a great day!

I used the Beach shape set to make my 10x10 canvas.
The recycled part- Soap box!
My Beach hut was made from the soap box!  I will be doing a live Youtube class to show how it was made.(Date will be announced soon)
The background of the canvas was made with Twinkling H2Os from ColourArte
I used shavings from the cake mixed with water in a mister to make a wash.
To get the rust look on the roof I used brown chalk paint. While the paint was wet , I sprinkled it with allspice. When I dried it with my heat gun, my craftroom smelled like a bakery!
 Thanks for stopping bye !

April Challenge for Gina's Designs Craft Group

Good morning and welcome to the April challenge for Gina's Designs Craft Group on Facebook!

For my project, I altered a canvas.
I started with a photo I took of my roses and one of Gina's large dollies. 
The butterfly has many layers. I used shredded burlap and black corrugated cardboard and one more layer of burlap. I finished it off with a piece of decorative tape.    

I used one of the word stackers - Inspire 
After adding the flowers and trim, I spattered white and black paint all over the canvas.
Don't forget to check out the challenge on Facebook. You could win a $10.00 gift card for Gina's Designs! Good luck!
