Lights Part II & gift ideas.


Just a quick post from Me before Rebecca takes to the stage at 4.

Yesterday I turned a tea light, doll parts and some vellum into a lamp, well finally my second attempt is dry enough to share.

Going back to the base idea of using a solar powered light I used a glowing globe as my base to create a nod to my favourite seasonal film, and this iconic image from Tim Burton's A Nightmare before Christmas.

starting with the top of the globes I drew around the top of a cup to create the moon shape, and drew the swirl.
Once I was happy with the shape I used my Pebeo Vitrail paints in transparent white for the moon, parma for the swirl, deep blue for the sky. leaving it to dry between layers

once dry I used Posca to draw Jack and Sally, add the snow effect, finally adding Rock candy stickles.  Putting them back together and letting them glow. 

I've also been busy getting Christmas presents ready, including making t-shirts of quotes or sayings we've used during the year as pyjama tops or Christmas jumpers. 

This year for me is a SANTA IS REAL hotfix glitter fabric t-shirt. 
Last years gift made with printed t-shirt transfer paper.
It's a personal alternative for the traditional Christmas Eve Pjs.

I am entering this into the Corrosive Challenge Blog for anything goes.
This is entered into the Altered Eclectics Challenge for the countdown to Christmas.

Thank you for looking and come back later to see what Bex has in store. 

Merry Christmas Jas x
