I wanted to take some better photos to show you, but my day yesterday was another disaster day and so I forgot and now it is Monday morning and time to post. Life certainly does become complicated. Hopefully things will turn around here soon - one can keep hoping! :<)
My oldest son Jim lives in an adult group home and he collects many things! :<) Animated stuffed toys is the big one - and this is the time of the year when he is happily showing me all of the Holiday character ones that are on now on display wherever we go. But second in line are the snow globes and he is fascinated by them, especially if they are also music boxes. So I when I saw these empty snow globes at Michaels ($8.99 - but I had my 40% off coupon!) that had a place in the middle of the globe where an insert could be placed I was very excited! I could make Jim a snow globe! What a great present that would be!
And - there it was! A finished snow globe!
I didn't take a lot of time with this one and so it is nothing fancy, but it looks great when the globe is shook and the snow is swirling around. I took some photos of it with the snow swirling, but I realized in looking at the finished photos that some of the 'snow' particles were colored, which didn't show at first to the naked eye - not mine anyway :<) - but when caught in the photo it showed the colored particles and was very distracting.
It doesn't play music, but it will make Jim happy, I am sure. He thinks his mom is a great artist anyway and so this will certainly up my image! :<) I am going to make another one and will take more time and effort in creating the image on the insert. This was great fun to make - try it! It would make a great Christmas gift for either a child or an adult. Let me know if you do and how it turned out! :<)
Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you a good Monday! I have had numerous requests, so I will try to have a tutorial on making the Book of Tags for you tomorrow. :<) This project is also a good one to give as a gift!
