Layers of Color Ornament Blog Hop




Welcome to the Layers of Col
or Ornament Blog Hop!

The beginning of the blog hop is at the Layers of Color blog. If you came here from Diana's blog, you are hopping in the right order.

This is the place to discover the newest creative paper ornament ideas, be inspired by talented designers, and get showered with gifts! Layers of Color is giving away:

FREE Ornament Templates!,

FREE Vintage Roses Ornament Tutorial!, and

6 drawings for a $20 Layers of Color Gift Certificate!

First, some ornament inspiration!...


I styled my ornament after a Victorian Tussy Mussy. I used one of the beautiful cherub images from the Angelic set. You could fill the container up with little treats or a small present. My angel was colored with Copics, and then I added a layer of Sukura Crystal Lacquer over the top.

Gorgeous cone ornament! I liked Layers of Color on FB, but don't know if I can get any friends to do so. I don't actually spend much time on FB and neither do my friends :) Thanks for the chance to win.
