Welcome Back

In the fourth installment of my Altered Baubles project here is my latest creation.

Gold, browns & green Altered Christmas Bauble

As before the original baubles looked like this;

Today’s bauble was originally bright Gold. It was coloured using Ranger’s alcohol inks in; Terracotta, Rust and Bottle.

These would make great presents and be ideal wrapped using the exploding box, shown in an earlier post. Do have a go at these yourself and let me see the results.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

Today I would like to share a picture of the altered Christmas bauble that I made.

Blue, Green & Silver Bauble

To make this bauble I used very inexpensive plastic baubles available in the UK from B&Q.

I coloured the baubles using Ranger Alcohol inks in various colours. Today’s bauble was originally one of the silver ones, it was coloured with Stonewashed, Denim and Bottle inks.

These would make great presents and be ideal wrapped using the exploding box, shown in an earlier post. Do have a go at these yourself and let me see the results.

There are more baubles to come in the following weeks.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
