A Breath of New Year Air

I made a much smaller bauble than this one for The Craft Stamper Christmas Decoration Art Call, and I was so lucky to have it selected for publication. So I thought why not make a larger and different one to see in 2017! I made this especially for Indigoblu, and you can see lots of other wonderful projects by the Indigoblu International Design Team here.

I found a box of inexpensive baubles in Hobbycraft which separated in half. Which are just perfect for this project.

I began by stamping the dog from the Indigoblu Clumber Park Stamp set, and fussy cut him. Being sure to leave tabs under his feet as these will be pushed into the snow later.

I die cut 2017 from Shrink Plastic and shrunk it with a heat gun, but this can also be done in an oven.

I mixed texture paste and Unicorn sparkles together and spooned it into each side of the bauble. I had gathered some thyme from the garden and used this as winter trees,

I stood the dog into the back half of the bauble a long with some thyme.

I hung the 2017 onto the trees branches, and added a dab of glue to help keep them in place.

I stood the New Years tree into the snow in the front half of the bauble. When both sides were dry I pushed them together, and hung it with a white ribbon.

Thank you so much for visiting me today : )
