Altered Lantern

 Hello ! I picked up a small metal lantern in cream which was rather dull. Using Imagination Crafts wax in pink I covered all over lightly. I placed green card on the inside base and decorated the edges with green branch twig thingy's ! After adding some twigs I added a pinecone , tiny snowballs and some small Christmas baubles and a small glitter ball On top I sat a little gold bird.. On the outside I added a bell train and topped with sweet little flowers that came from I Am Roses. Another little bird was added to the top. I added a small light I made using Air Dry Clay I  used ink to distress it and put glitter in the window/light area. Using Snowtex I covered areas on the top of the lantern. Other embellishments used are from my stash. Thanks for stopping by xx

Ill provide a link to Lady E Facebook (below post) if you wish to look.Its amazing how seeing other peoples work encourages you to try new things. I always rejoyce when filled with inspiration from others. had a wooden bobbin from thick ribbon I had used. I decided to use it to make a Winter scene. I used lots of different mediums which I will list below. To start I waxed the bobbin with Creative Expressions wax in Green. Around the edge I attached a branch stem. To finish I misted the whole thing with TH Distress spray in Picket Fence. 
Gold mesh . Twigs from florist shop .Snowballs from Docraft. Snowtex. Pinecones. Stamens from someplace online ! Wooden boot/socks and tree both from The Range ( xmas decorations section).
