Holiday Memories: An Ornament

Hi Karenliz here.

My camera is always charged and ready to take that perfect or not so perfect picture during the holidays.  I’m the photographer who captures everything and anything. I wanted to create an ornament with holiday memories but didn’t know how to frame the pictures on the ornament but thanks to stencils I found the perfect frames. These are the stencils I used for this project.

The first step was to paint the wooden ornament white and then using the  Shattered Circles stencil (TCW408) I added silver and pearl acrylic paint.  Next, I used Twas The Night stencil (TCW394) and with modeling paste added the Christmas tree and and the word joy on the stencil (Step 2).

I needed frames for my pictures so I traced the Captured stencil (TCW392) on a piece of cardstock and cut out the frames (Step3); painted them with gold acrylic paint (Step4). By now the modeling paste was dry and I was able to paint the tree and the word joy.  I found some interesting Christmas pictures on my computer and resized them for the frames. Here is the finished ornament.

These pictures are not of my family but these are the pictures I love to take. Not posed, not perfect, just holiday memories to look back on and say “Remember that?”.  Do you have some funny holiday memories to put on your ornaments?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
