Christmas Rose door hanger and barrette

Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion stamps are absolutely beautiful.  When I heard that she was designing a Christmas Paint Fusion collection, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them.  After this coming week of sneak peaks, I bet you will feel the same.  I saw the Christmas Rose Paint Fusion stamps and immediately began to think of all the different projects I could make with them.

My first thought was that these beautiful flowers would be perfect to decorate a door hanger with.

This door hanger was very easy to make.  I started by painting a plain door hanger with white acrylic paint.   I let the first coat dry, and then added a second coat to make sure the brown was covered.  While the second coat of paint was drying, I pulled out some white glitter I had on hand and sprinkled it all over the wet paint.  The paint acts as a glue while it is wet, so the glitter sticks really well to it.

To make the flowers, I stamped out the leaves and flowers on my Paint Fusion stamp set and colored them using my Copic Sketch markers.   The colors I used for the flowers were  R81, R83, R85, Y35, and Y38.  I used Copic markers G21, G24, G28 for the leaves.  Once they were colored, I added them to the door hanger with a glue gun and Double Sided Adhesive Foam.

To finish it off, I added a pretty bow I made with some leftover ribbon and letters spelling out, "Lara's Room"."

While I was coloring the Christmas roses in pink, I also colored a rose in red to add to a plain barrette.  For this Christmas rose I colored it with Copic Sketch markers R22, R24, R27, Y35, and Y37.   Because I knew that this flower would be going on a barrette, I wanted to make it a little sturdier.  To do this, I painted the flower with Chandelier Glimmer Glaze.  The glaze has an almost starch like quality so it really stiffens up anything you use it on, as well as adding lots of glitter.

As you can see, the two projects were a huge hit with my daughter.

We will see you tomorrow with another fabulous sneak peak of Sheena Douglass' Christmas Paint Fusion Collection.  Have a great day!
