This project was created by Art Impressions Design Team member Tricia Kennedy using stamp sets from our Watercolor Line! Here is how Tricia created this project: My “Merry Christmas Ornament” for today’s Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend is a perfect gift to make this holiday season.
To begin, either hand write, stamp or print Merry Christmas 2017 on your watercolor paper. I opted to print it. Cut out a 3” circle with Merry Christmas 2017 to the right, leaving room to stamp to the left. Stamp about ¾ of the tree trunk from the WC Fir Trees Set in 45 Sepia. Build the tree using the two straight fir boughs from the WC Fir Trees Set in 72 Pine Green. Stamp the large bough straight up on the top of the tree trunk then the small bough four times below on each side of the tree trunk and then the large bough at the very bottom on both sides of the tree trunk. Pull the color with your watercolor brush and water. Place about a tablespoon snow flakes and about a ½ teaspoon jumbo glitter in the ornament. Run a thin line of strong liquid glue on the edge of the ornament. Attach the watercolored piece to the ornament. Run another thin line of liquid glue where the ornament and paper meet. Let dry. Tie a piece of the Christmas plaid ribbon into a bow and glue on the top and let dry. Finally attach a piece of jute into the ornament and tie for the hanger. Shake the ornament to get the glitter and snow to move around.
