Ornament #2

I know I really need to get back to actually "transforming" paper! I miss doing teabag folding, iris folding, altered media (like my butterfly house here), coloring, etc. Maybe making some home made paper from my scraps, which I have wanted to do for a long time. That would be the ultimate transformation of paper, lol

Until then...I have made another ornament. This is the second of the Nicecrane Designs ornaments.  The ornaments are so unique, I just love them. I am not sure why I can't find this one on the site :o( but there are 3 others there. One of the three I made you can see here.

This is the top of the ornament. As you can see, I used beads and cord to decorate this one.

I also used this very unique glitter called Elements. I know it has been around for a while, but I wanted to see it in real life before purchasing it. Not only is it really nice and a bit chunky, but it smells so yummy. This one smells like an herb I just can't place right now. My husband thought it smelled like chicken soups, lol. I really think it is just an herb that would go into it. The store had others that I smelled. They all smell soooo yummy or pretty.

Here are some views of the 4 sides of the ornament:

I did not add any embellishments to the pictures. I just couldn't think of any that would dress them up without distracting from the nice vintage look . 

I hope your not sick of seeing the Nicecrane Designs, lol, I like them so much I have not strayed from them...I am planning on doing so on my next project though. Sooooo...if you are a bit bored, just hold on, lol

Thank you so much for stopping by...{{{HUGS}}} Sandy O
