Christmas Ornament swap!

I recently took part on a Christmas ornament swap, hosted by the fabulous Zuzu! Now my swap partner has received her ornament, I can share it with you....
I made by bauble base from clay. Paper clay as it is much lighter then polymer clay!
You will need something to hang the bauble up, so twist a loop in some wire:
Then push the long tails right the way into the soft clay, taking care not to pierce the surface!
As it is a nice chunky size, it takes a while to fully dry out. This was left on a radiator for three days!
Once it's fully dry, I sealed the whole thing with some glue n seal, then covered it with old book paper...
 French language paper for a change! I then gave it a wash of white paint, and drew on a star shape. This was painted turquoise...
I then did a little stamping to carry on with the turquoise colour scheme...
This is a 3D ornament...Don't forget the back!
I think outlined the star with a fine liner pen, and did a little doodling...
A Rub On word, and lots of clear gloss varnish later, it was finished!
I added a touch of silver tinsel to the loop, just to bling it up a bit!
I had a lot of fun creating this, I think I'll be doing some more!
