Merry Christmas all...

It is Tracey here with my last project of 2018.
Wow this year has just flown by and i hope for you all it has been a good one. I have made a Christmas star decoration. It is quite a large star around 8in  from one tip to another .
I painted it with white gesso and added guilding flakes to the tips of the star.

I also distressed the stars ridges with Tim Holz Antique linen distress ink. I heat embossed a Sue Wilson presents stamp with gold embossing powder as the focal image and embellished around it with a Sizzix Pete Hughes wreath die

The mdf word Peace ,little plaque ,swirl and reindeer were colored on the edges  with gathered twig distress ink. I added a  glittered gold pre made flower  and some gems and a bow made from jute which i made on my Craft-dee Bowz bowmaker  which makes lovely bows every time with ease.
