After several hours layered , bundled, and covered in confetti from the clowns , I got to see this little lady march by me in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. They all left the hotel at 5:55 am on the subway in just their little costumes for Central Park , and they marched and then danced at Harold's Square for the tv performance portion of the parade. It was a wonderful week and once in a lifetime experience for all of the dancers . We were able to have some quality mother daughter time sightseeing in between rehearsals , and the week flew by before we knew it .
Back in the studio , I wanted to do some sort of holiday ornament with some of the hand painted encaustic embedded rice papers that I am completely addicted to . Something simple to frame some of my favorite parts of each painting . When they are hung these little ornaments illuminate like little paper lanterns when placed on a twinkling lit tree.
I did some with and some without glitter. I am not a huge glitter fan , but I do enjoy a little sparkle on the Christmas tree. The glitter portion is completely optional . I did enjoy the look of the plain darkened annealed steel framed against the paper as well. I purchased the wire from Ace Hardware.
