I store my planner next to the computer in my craft room...right beside the woven box that I hang my key collection on. I have been adding the keys slowly, and it looks rather bare still. Thought I would hang the ornament there, amidst the keys. Should be fun to see the two matching pieces there as I do not usually decorate this room at all.
Some of the storage baskets in my room are the same shade of green as the word bells on my sentiment. That is why I chose green for the planner cover and the quotes with green for the focal points.
Here is my start on crafty Christmas decorating!
The base is a top note looking greenware ornament I picked up yesterday at Michaels in America. I covered it with Viva Inka Gold in the colour silver. I had to do a couple of coats to get full coverage and actually took a stiff artist paintbrush and pushed the silver paste into the ridges on the side edges.
Once fully dry, I then centered the vellum quote and trimmed off the excess with an exacto knife.
I looped a small piece of silver braided cord through the hole at the top and tied it in the back and cut off the loose ends fairly close tot he knot.
It still looked a little bare, so I took 2 lengths of very fine, silver twine and tied then round the bottom of the braid.. made a double loopy bow and tacked into place (to firm it up with a teensy glue dot.I added a pink rhinestone to cover the look of the glue dot edges.
I am happy with it and think it will look good beside my planner.
I am entering this ornament in the following challenges
