Altered CD - Lizzy Hill

G'day! I thought for my Dusty Attic extra this month, I'd do something Christmas-sy.
I had this CD & decided to create a sort of spinner decoration.
Here's the end result. This is my 'funny' photo. I found a hook on our verandah, but DH was in the background. He decided to 'hide', LOL!!!
Giggles! This is a double sided creation....& I've done a step by step, if, like me, you've got CD's that could be 'up-cycled':
1. Adhere ribbon through centre hole, onto both sides of the CD:
 2. Cut out patterned paper. Use CD as a template. I've used 2 different
 3. Adhere. I used PVA glue, which worked really well:
4. Add your title, or some nice Christmas words.
I outlined my words, as they didn't 'pop' quite enough:
5. Using the HANGING MASON JARS, I painted them white with a Sharpie
paint marker, then wrote the words on them. I added gold glitter nail polish
& finally some fine glitter, which stuck beautifully to the nail polish:
 For the 'wrong' sides, I added my own lid lines with a marker:
6. Time to fancy up the FEATHER CHARMS #2 & #3:
Using DUSTY ATTIC paint in VINTAGE GOLD over the Sharpie white
paint pen, then adding some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze on the baubles, with
some fine glitter sprinkled over, this is how they turned out:
The ORNATE PENDANTS #2 got a coat of the paint only:
 I also added a touch of gold to some of the Hanging Mason Jars:
Here is how the front and back turned out:
I LOVE how you can actually HANG some of the little jars - on the 
right side, above.
I really find those 'traditional' colours of red and green hard to use, so
was pleased with these ones! Some close ups:
 You can see I also rubbed some DA Vintage Gold paint around the edges:
And the 'joy' side:
 I added a die cut bell behind the chippy on this side, too:
I hope this gets you enthused about some Christmas decorating. It is coming up fast!
Thanks for looking & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy.
