Dove Christmas Ornament by Lauren Tomecek


Christmas in July Day 9

 Couture Creations is showcasing their beautiful range of Christmas themed die-cuts and embossing folders in a special Christmas in July series of projects.
Welcome to day 9 of Couture Creations Christmas in July
I love creating Christmas scrapbooking items and chose to go with a tree ornament/painters tray as my contribution.
This is actually a really easy project to create. Start by preparing your painters tray. I painted mine gold initially, then applied a layer of crackle medium and then white acrylic paint over the top so you can only see the gold in the crackles. This creates a lovely subtle effect. Select the patterned paper you want to use and adhere this to the different sections as needed.
If you want to have a dangly charm at the bottom like I have, punch the hole now and thread it through before you adhere the frame to the base.
Cut your relevant die-cut decorations. I have used the largest dove (this comes in a set of three) and the Pine Needles (also a set of 3) from the Merry Little Christmas Collection. Use a stamp pad to colour the vine in the dove's mouth. Adhere your die cuts to the tray and them embellish with chipboard and flowers. I have also use a pearl as an accent and for the dove's eye.
