A Bauble of Joy

This is a little project I did for my new grandson's first Christmas, and I thoroughly enjoyed making it!  As with all my previous MDF projects this one starts with the bauble being coated in white gesso.  Then acrylic paints are used to create a simple snow scene.  The stamp used is by Indigo Blue, it is stamped using flitter glue and covered in guilding flakes.  The excess flakes are burnished off with a rough textured sponge.  Two colours of stickles are used to give the effect of snowfall.  Some ribbonn is threaded through the top of the bauble and a bow added.  The back of the bauble is decorated in the same way, but my grandson's name and date of birth replace the stamped image.
