I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!
Personalized ornaments are treasured for years. With Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium and photo copies, you can capture those special moments, loved ones, and even the family’s pet to be enjoyed for years to come!

Instructions

1. Cut dog themed scrapbook paper into ½” strips.

2. Working with one strip at a time, moisten strip with water.  Apply Mod Podge to backside of strip and apply to glass ornament wrapping around shape.  Allow to dry.  Continue adding strips leaving small margins of glass to show.  If desired, cut heart shapes from additional scrapbook paper and apply over Mod Podged’ strips.  Allow to dry.

3. To create a photo transfer decal:  Place your photo copy on a sheet of waxed paper.  Apply a generous amount of Photo Transfer Medium to front of photo copy and allow to dry for 24 hours.

4. Flip the photo transfer over and begin removing the layers of paper by moistening the back and lightly rubbing over the backside of the photo copy.  Continue removing paper until you no long see white paper fibers.  Allow to dry.  You now have a decal which can be applied to the front of the Mod Podged’ glass ornament.

5. Embellish with twisted twine which is hot glued around the photo transfer decal.

6. Add Ribbon and twine bows and a button to the ornament top!

7. Enjoy on your tree or give to loved ones!
