On the 5th Day of Christmas


Today is my day to share the ornament that I've created for my online Adorn Ornament friends. They each received one of the styles of resin filled cookie cutters in the above picture. The miniature cookie cutters were purchased at a quilt show that I attended with some of my "artsy fartsy' friends... That's what my mother-in-law calls the girls...ha ha ha... Anyway, my friend Melissa noticed these little ornaments on a tree and suggested that they might work using resin. I'd been struggling with my original ornament idea and I had recently learned how to use Resin at Art & Soul in Hampton, Virginia this past May from Nina Bagley... hmmm... what a perfect opportunity to try my hand with this medium. While it was a challenge as several of the 'molds' had gaps and my resin leaked everywhere, I was successful with several of my attempts. Each ornament/cookie cutter was collaged with vintage text and ephemera, bits and pieces of this and that. The hangers are new Ornament hooks that I aged in a Liver of Sulfur solution.
I hope my new online friends enjoy this little ornament as much as I am enjoying the ones that I have received in exchange.

Happy Holidays Ya'll!!!
