For my family, now that Thanksgiving has passed in North America we have moved our focus onto Christmas. In preparation for creating some new ornaments this year I picked up a package of these Styrofoam balls from the craft store and I decided to decorate each of them differently, and this is the first ornament.
Now this week our Gelatos® color is Metallic Grape, which isn't necessarily the first color you think about when you think of holiday colors, but I don't believe you have to stick to traditional rules in art!
To create this ornament I dug through my fabric stash for some white background fabric and came up with these three patterned fabrics: houndstooth, polka-dot, and a light cream with some screen printed white flowers on it.
You can stay tuned to my blog for how I decorated the remaining ornaments in the weeks leading up to Christmas!
