Ornaments!

At Delightful Inspiration we are challenged to use this beautiful poinsettia image to make a  project, it took me two days decide what to do... and finally I made ornaments! they were so much fun to make!
I started by choosing the papers (from Jaime), I changed the color of the image on PS to match the papers and printed the flower several times on three coordinating patterned papers. Then I pieced all parts of the flower, shaded them a bit with colored pencils before attaching all parts with foam tape. To add sparkle and texture to my ornaments I glued some glass seed beads on the centers of the flowers. The snowflakes are plastic ones from the dollar store already glittered, a piece of fishing line makes them ready to hung!
Hope you like them!
