Decor Elements

Finally had a few moments to whip up my Vintage Ornaments painting ... I so love how simple yet pretty these are to make!

Paint a canvas with the colour scheme of your choice starting lightest to darker colours ... so this one was using a white acrylic paint for the background and than a few drops of Old Olive reinker dropped over and brushed through to make it look like the background of a 'tree'. Let dry and than apply your decor element of choice!

Tip for paint use - do not use a 'pearlized' paint though cause the decor elements do not seem to want to stick to anything pearl or glossy textured - it needs to be a flat paint for best results ... you can add a pearl or glitter to your surface after adding the decor element for bling effect just be careful to avoid the decor element :)
