Peace, Hope, Love Ornament
By Susan Cobb
Designer Tip: This pretty dark blue and silver ornament reminds me of a peaceful dark blue evening sky, complete with twinkling stars. I used silver memory thread to create a taller hanger which extends the ornate look of the ornament upward.
- Remove the gold top from the glass ornament. Put on your rubber gloves and cover your work area or sink with newspapers or paper towels. While holding the top of the ornament with one hand, turn it so a flat side is facing up. Squeeze some blending solution onto the ornament, turning it so it is covered with the solution. Now squeeze a few drops of Sailboat Blue ink onto the ornament, turning to let the ink run over both sides. Add a few drops of silver, then a few more drops of the sailboat blue ink. Keep turning the ornament over and let the inks mix. Add more sailboat blue or Silver ink until you get the desired look, and turn the ornament over occasionally until the ink dries.
- Squeeze a few drops of Silver Mixatives ink on the gold top and spread with the paintbrush to cover. Let dry, then add top to the ornament. Attach Dazzles™ to ornament as shown. Thread a 10” length of silver memory thread through the ring at the top of the ornament. Tie a knot in the memory thread at the ring. Pull up ends of memory thread together. Twist together 3 times, ¾” from the knot at the ring, then repeat. Tie a knot at the top of the second set of twists, then tie a bow and trim ends to 1 ½” to 2”. Curl the ends with fingers as shown.
