Deck the halls
The tree has been purchased. The decorations out of the loft. Rooms prepared (in other words we have cleared out loads of rubbish)...Oh, we aren't Hoarders if you are thinking that (cough). That is unless you happen to look in my studio space ...I have to admit that over the last week even I have been shocked at the amount of 'rubbish' I have 'put aside for a rainy day'. You know, the items that you 'think' you will need one day. So I have been very focused with 'clearing out' and boy does it feel better AND best of all it LOOKS better. Now I have plenty of room to start saving it all again (laugh)!!....No, not really.....
During all this madness of clearing out, I didn't feel like doing serious art. But you know me, I can't keep away from it for more than a few seconds, so I found a little project for myself to just Play and have fun using some of the scrap paper we were clearing out.
Some roughly drawn Santa stockings..
Painted and adding some glitter at the top
using Tacky Glue
I stuck some thread on the back (as you see I didn't bother to paint the other side of them as I'll hang them up so that doesn't show!)..
and there you have it....little Santa Stockings out of scrap paper......and fun to make
