Day 11 of Advent

Today has been one of those days where everything I have touched has fallen out of my hands or gone wrong! Must be a woman thing! I took myself out this afternoon to get some air, and do a little bit of Christmas shopping. All I managed to get was a chocolate yule log and some icing sugar in preparation for making something for Christmas!
Today's winners of the blog candy (who will get a little bag of beaded chain each) are....*drum roll*...
Debbie    and     Nikki
Congratulations! Please email me your snail mail addresses so I can send your blog candy to you.
I liked the ornament so much yesterday that I used a square one today with clear utee, and dropped in a little bit too much of green To Dye for Ink from Ranger to colour it-oops! Came out very dark green! Be careful if you add coloured ink into clear utee as it has to the right ink. Otherwise it may cause you problems. 
This time I used a texture mat Christmas tree from CaroLines, and using a dry paintbrush coloured in the trees with our gold mica powder paint to highlight it. It is not the best picture I have taken, and doesn't really show it very well. You can also remove it from the frame and punch a hole in it, to hang. Might try one of those tomorrow :)
If you would like to win this ornament, all you have to do is post a comment or be a follower, and it will be winging its way to you on Saturday! Winner anounced tomorrow evening.
Happy Creating!

What a great little forest of Christmas trees. Love the effect. I didn't get time to 'play' with any UTEE today to emulate your work - and our Christmas tree still waits patiently in the garden. Where do the days go?

this is such a wonderful ornament. I was looking at pendants today that sort of look like this. What a neat little sidline that would be.
