Sugar Skull Poinsettia Snowman

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... Glitter is everywhere. Take a look at my studio, glistening, with Blank Page Muse, Red & Green, and Copics! Ok, maybe I do need to just stick with creating art. I am so excited to be here today and apart of the Ornament Showcase featuring Blank Page Muse Stamps. 

I would like you to meet the newest ornament for my tree... My Sugar Skull Poinsettia Snowman! 

I started with wood pieces that I bought a few years ago... you know, those things you just have to have and then they sit in the "one day I will use them" bin. I painted them with White Liquitex Paint and then a slight glossing with ColourArte Primary Elements in my favorite color: Dragonfly Wing. 

Now, time to stamp and color. Use a Sugar Skull from the Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls Marigold Flowers Scared Heart Stamp Set and the Poinsettia from the Classic Christmas Art Set. Stamp the images in Memento, Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with my Copic Markers and Atyou Spica Markers. 

I had so much fun curled up in front of the fire coloring. 

Once everything is colored, fussy cut out the images.
I hand drew the hat, colored, and cut out as well.
Next start to put the Sugar Skull Snowman together. Cut apart one Poinsettia and use pop dots to add a little dimension to the Snowman's hat. 

Here is a close up of the Poinsettias at the base of the snowman. You can see how beautiful the sparkle is from the Atyou Spica markers. 

I really love this Poinsettia Stamp and so enjoyed coloring them. 

Using my drill, I drilled holes into the sides for the arms to stick in and a hole in the top for a hook to be able to hang it. You can see the support chipboard pieces I used and the hook at the top. 

So my snowman had her own little photo shoot around my home amongst all the Christmas decorations.

I hope you are feeling a little more festive and inspired. ...and don't forget to keep coming back to see all the amazing ornaments and Christmas inspiration the Blank Page Muse Design Team has for you this holiday season. 

Until next time... Happy Creating! 

XOXO, Christine
