Below are the designers participating in the hop. Some may have a tutorial or project each day, and some may not.
My project today is an altered glass block that can be found at any Hobby Lobby store, drilled with a small glass bit, and then put a small strand of lights inside for an unique, however personalized, decoration.
Since I was using one of the pre-drilled glass blocks, I started out by sponging white acrylic paint onto the block and then stamping images from the Little Church mini and New Pines stamp sets in pallet noir and pallet burnt umber before setting the inks with an heat embossing tool. Once the ink was set, I cut up some sponges and lightly sponged Tim Holtz forest moss, pine needles, and brushed corduroy distress inks. Once I was satisfied with the ink coverage, I took a couple of Stampin Up! markers and dabbed the colors into the church windows and roof. My final touch was to add a recycled red/green/gold ribbon from a past Christmas and tie it into a bow.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design teams blogs to leave some love.
