…then made some circles with Matte Multi-Medium and sprayed on Adirondack Color Wash. The Multi-Medium acts as a resist and the Color Wash falls into the crevices. It gives the project a dynamic textured effect.

Do you expect a White Christmas where you live? Here in Tinton Falls, New Jersey we expect it, but don't always get it. Would be fun to take a trip around the world to see what your climate is like at Christmastime. Let us know.
Here's how it's done: Cut two 2 x 2 pieces of colored cardstock and set aside. This will be your background. Next, stamp an image on the frosted side of the 2 x 2 Frosted Memory Glass with Adirondack Pitch Black Pigment Ink. Let Dry. (Debbie used Paper Artsy's Partridge from Egg Nog #5 set.) Then decorate the glass (still on the frosted side) with dots, stripes or color the entire piece of glass with Ice Stickles. Let dry. Insert the glass and 2 x 2 cardstock into a 2 x 2 Memory Frame, add a ribbon on top, and that's all there is to it.
The large glitter crystals you find in Ice Stickles really make the background of these ornaments sparkle and glisten. So festive!
