A couple of years ago, as I was preparing for Christmas, I was making backgrounds using an ordinary rectagular kitchen scrourer sponge dipped into random pools of acrylic paint. The idea was to create multicoloured rectangular backgrounds onto which I could stamp and emboss images. As I lifted the sponge, this image of Mary cradling her baby was revealed. There was no intention, to create this and I treasure it as an image of what Christmas is about.

I am really proud of these decorations. Each one is individually handpainted so designs may differ slightly.
The set has 3 kings, two shepherds, Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus.
You can order a set via the email me button. I'll be adding them to my online store in the next few days.
A set of eight decorations hand painted with the nativity characters.
Each character has appropriate words from a christmas carol on the reverse.
The ornaments are painted with acrylics and are then coated with glitter varnish.
I am taking orders for them as I plan to make lots more. Each decoration measures approx 3.5" x 1.5".
