Guess what? we get to make another miniature art project!
This design is super simple and you can change out just a couple of things to make it for any type of theme.
Although it’s for the holidays, you can:
- change up St. Nick for another focal point
- change the Rhinestone stars to tiny beads, sequins, buttons or dots of paint
- print out your own quote using your favourite font on card stock.
- don’t have white gesso, use white paint
- don’t have black gesso, use black paint or mix up a blue and brown for Chromatic Black (black made with colour)
