Eileen Hull's December Art with Heart Challenge – A Few of Your Favorite Things…

Merry Christmas everyone! It's getting closer and closer. ;-) I still have so many ideas of projects I want to make. We will see how many come to fruition this month. The theme for the December Art with Heart Challenge is "Favorite Things". Basically that means anything goes lol. Show us your favorite themes, supplies, whatever. Unleash your creativity and take some time for it in this busy month. You could be rewarded with a great prize from Eileen for linking up your project in the challenge post!

My project was an idea that I had last year and never got a chance to make. Nativity decorations are definitely one of my favorite things and I enjoy having them set up around the house for the Christmas season. I knew that an ATB tower would be just perfect for the detailed mini nativity I bought from Retro Cafe Art. (They come in three sizes and I was just amazed at the crisp detail. So wonderful!)

Of course it is so hard to photograph but I used lots of metallic paint, shimmer mists and glitter. This ATB really sparkles and shines!

around we go…
