Getting a Jump on Next Year's Ornaments

Prisms (Stacy Wills, 2013)
alcohol ink on beveled prisms

December has been a full month - far more busy than I thought it would be....but even in the midst of all the busyness, the creative itch must still be scratched!  I salvaged these beveled prisms from an old art deco chandelier and wondered if they might work as suitable substrates for alcohol ink.    I really like the way  the first two turned out, and I've got plans to make more...I'm thinking these would make good Christmas ornaments for next year.   Happy Holidays!

Embody the Radiance

Light Body (Stacy Wills, 2013)

Embody the Radiance

This is what happens
When Spirit
Pours through matter
Everything comes alive
Light incarnates
Love incarnates 
Embrace the truth
of who you are...
Embody the radiance
That is You

Feelin' Merry and Bright

I've spent the better part of the last two days making 

these alcohol ink on porcelain Christmas ornaments.

If you could see my ink-stained fingers, you'd know

it was a labor of love!

I was a teenager the last time I got crafty at Christmas 

and made  ornaments - salt dough ornaments to be exact.  I still have one or

two that have survived the years well enough to  make it onto our tree.

It took awhile to figure out the best way to do these,

but I finally got a pretty good system going.  The

hardest part was waiting for them to dry so I could

really tell if these were going to be "tree-worthy."

Once they were dry, I gave them a protective coat of varnish.

 I love the way my ornaments turned out so much

that  I'm already thinking about what I can do next year!

 I'll be taking these to a holiday market our

neighborhood is having tomorrow afternoon.

Hopefully, some will find their way onto 

someone else's Christmas tree!
