Santa Ornament

My first ornament of the season....took all evening and part of the afternoon to finish.  I finally gave in and used the glue gun as there were just too many things to fasten.   Hate all those stringies from the hot glue but I may be able to melt them away with the heat gun.  I used clear glass ornaments and poured cheap acrylic paint into them....did't get many swirlies but the 4 of them seemed to get better as I went along.  Hoping to get several more finished in the next 2 weeks for the adult grandchildren.  Thanks to my Wacko friends, Sally Paul, and the gals on Latest Trends in Mixed Media for ideas and encouragement.  (Why do I wait till the last minute? ) Click to enlarge!
