Rue Romantique Christmas Ornament blog hop with ICE Resin®

Rue Romatique BlogHop SKWeckesser
Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
-Thomas Merton
Hello! I am feeling really Christmassy today but I am part of the Rue Romantique Christmas Ornament Blog Hop with ICE Resin®. I have had SO much fun the last couple of weeks drinking hot chocolate, singing Christmas carols, and  making some fun Ornaments! My family thought I was a little batty as I have been wandering around singing Jingle Bell, and Frosty the Snowman!
I am the last one that you get to visit on this Hop and I sure hope that you enjoy your stay!
I took a Rue Romantique designed by Kristen Robinson and some Iced Enamels from Susan Lenart Kazmer. Both products are from IceResin and if you haven’t tried the Ice Enamels yet…You really have too because they are so much fun!


I brushed on some Iced Enamels Medium, sprinkled on some Iced Enamels and then set it with a heat gun.

I did the same for my metal flower center, but I left the metal disc in the center blank.

I then used my Crop-a-Dile to punches holes in everything and wired it together. Those little twisted stripes of paper are actually Ice Resin paper that I made and then cut into stripes and curled.
I LOVE Ice Resin paper! I can never get enough of it …..well, especially enough of making it! *wink*
