Christmas Ornament Swap: She-Art Style!


This swap was for the Flickr group
and was to make a handmade Christmas ornament
that included in it's design one or more game piece of some sort
 and the theme was "What Christmas means to me".

Well, Christmas means so many things of course,
but it wouldn't be Christmas without a tree!

The trees in these pieces are made from
chipboard game tiles from a Junior Scrabble set.


Being chipboard they were easy to cut into triangle-ish
shapes with scissors.

My ornaments are small wall hangings.
The base are pieces of balsa wood
which I decorated with some old book text and
music paper then added various mediums to colour
and added a She-Art girl to stand beside the tree.


Each tree was topped off with a 'crystal' from
an old chandelier.






The hangers are wire strung with a few jingle bells.


These are quite grungy and not your traditional type
 of Christmas ornaments but I hope the recipients
will like them anyway.

Thanks for looking :)
