~~**Creative Design Team Blog Hop**~~

Welcome To The Angela Holt Designs
 Creative Design Team Blog Hop
Featuring Graphic 45... and Twelve Days of Christmas Collection
If you have came from Angela's Blog you are in the right place.
Graphic 45 is an award-winning scrapbook & paper crafting
company offering vintage inspired crafting products,
papers, embellishments & boxes.

Along with Graphic 45 for my project I have also used...

Etchall etching crème is a re-usable crème that produces
a white opaque, permanent etched finish on glass, mirror,
ceramic, porcelain, marble and slate.
Now onto my project...
I have used the Tim Holtz idea-ology Assemblage Clock and created a cute Christmas table decoration with Graphic 45's BEAUTIFUL Twelve Days of Christmas Collection. A tutorial on the etching using Etchall and lots of awesome items from Angela's Shabby Chic Kits.
First I began with cutting out MERRY CHRISTMAS using vinyl for my letters

Next I positioned it where I wanted it on the glass before removing it
from the clockI worked it to get it adhered to glass REALLY good...
I don't want to get any etchall where I don't want it and you apply it on THICK using the etcall spatual to work the bubbles out. Angela described it best you want it on thick like peanut butter...lol!.. once applied you leave it to set for 15 minutes!!!...

 Next the great thing about this product... you can reuse it,
so I scooped up the excess and returned it back to the bottle!

Then I rinsed it off... I like to re-rinse too after I remove the vinyl.

Next I cut out a cicle using my Cameo to cover the backing of the clock...
I used the CHRISTMAS ROSE sheet of Graphic 45 ...
then I glued it to the clock back. Then I gesso'd the entire clock

I used the beautiful applicades, feathers, lace, ribbon from Angela's Shabby Chic Kits.... and these AWESOME crystals which can be found at Miriam's Crafting Supplies.. roses, pearls, snowflake brads that I cut apart, a crystal rose, a rhinestone swirl and a cute paper flower my daughter made for me. I added a "diamond" to the center it, and I fussy cut a small oval shape from the collection and added it to the charm and placed the clear glass overlay over it to create a charm which all this was also in the Shabby Chic Kit!
Lastly I took and randomly just smeared silver glitter paint.
 I choose the a tag from the tag and pocket sheet and
attached it to a fancy clip and hot glued it to the inside of the clock.

And there you have it... my Christmas Decoration!!!
