This one of the flatter ornaments so the front surface is a good one to do some artwork on.
I first primed the glass with Gesso. I had bought some clear Gesso and wanted to try that. Here is what it looks like on the front of the ornament.
Not really that clear. Hmmmm - false advertising. I used regular Gesso on a page of a book and then stamped my snowman (Paper Smooches).
I colored the snowman with my Big Brush Pens from Faber Castell and carefully cut him out. I used gel medium to put him on the front of my ornament.
Oops and once again I forgot to take pictures of what I did so get your imagination working here to see what I am talking about. I used embossing paste and made a snowbank for my snowman to sit in. I then used my distress paints and colored the sky. After it was dry, I used a new stencil and made those random dots with more embossing paste. I added some snowflake stickers I had. I brushed the snowman and snowbank with a glitter and glass bead gel from Faber Castell. I used more normal gel medium over the top of the sky to set the color and the stickers.
I decided I wanted to fill the bulb with some sparkly gift bag shreds.
Lucky me - I found 3 bags of these shreds in my supplies so guess I need to get busy and make some more ornaments.
