Learn How to Use Vertigo Surfaces to Create Ornaments

It’s almost time to start decorating the Christmas tree and in preparation for this fun family event, I have started making new ornaments.

Inspired by the color of the month – Frosted Blue – I thought it would be fun to create an ornament or two using Imagine’s Vertigo film paired with Imagine’s various mediums in lovely shades of blue.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes + dry time

Directions

Step 1

Die-cut 3 hearts in 3 different sizes of any given shape.

I am using Xcut hearts both in scallop and plain. 

I used 3 different styles of Vertigo film – (large to small) – Prism, Taffeta and Tilted.

Step 2

Rub a thin layer of Blue Hawaii StazOn Studio Glaze over the medium size shape and let dry.

Once the glaze has dried, spread a second layer of Cotton White Studio Glaze over Blue Hawaii. Sprinkle a generous layer of Iridescent White Flitter Flakes over the glaze.

Let the glaze dry then shake off the loose flitter.
