Floral pastel hand painted Christmas ornaments

Hello friends. I hope you’ve been keeping well. Well it’s November and Christmas is now fair game right?
I’m actually a little behind with my tree and I’m no where near to having anything ready.  I have been trying to decide what color scheme to go with this year and I go back and forth with my decision .
I think that I put too much pressure on myself to come up with new and exciting Christmas decor and suddenly, the magic of Christmas gets lost.  So this year, I’ve decided to just follow my heart and see where things lead…:)

The other day I was working on a project and my palette had these pretty pastel colors left behind and so I decided to  visit Michaels and get some plain white ornaments and give them a little life.
Aren’t the colors so sweet?   Since last year I did blush pink, I’m not sure if this will work, but we’ll see. :)

By the way, Santa’s MAKEshop is now open at Michaels! There are so many beautiful items to suit your own personal taste. So make sure you take a little trip this week and take a look.

I was having a hard time trying to photograph these because it was cloudy… christmastree2017-5 christmastree2017-6 christmastree2017-7 christmastree2017-8 christmastree2017-9 christmastree2017-10 christmastree2017-11 christmastree2017-12 christmastree2017-13 christmastree2017-14 christmastree2017-15 christmastree2017-16 christmastree2017-17 I can’t wait to see how things progress this year.

    Welcome winter. Your pastels are so delicate and pretty. I found that if I added a little white Birch woodsy textures to my pale, smooth decorations, it adds interest. Your silver and sage are really nice too. Always enjoy your art and creativity. Thank you for sharing.

    Oh my gosh, I never thought of pastel ornaments! I’ve seen plenty of Christmas ornaments at Yankee Candle and Bonners but I’ve never seen pastels. They are so pretty as are your painting on the ornaments. Seeing as how I can’t paint like you do but I can paint with stencils, how cool would that be? I could make some too. I’m thinking about it. Thanks for showing us you’re really pretty ornaments. I can’t wait to see them on your tree!

    This is beyond dreamy! Any chance you could share the paint colors you used? I am no artist but this looks like a cute thing to do with the kids and these colors are just amazing. Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!
