tutorial for art bead scene ornament blog hop


Today I am participating in the second Art Bead Scene Ornament Blog Hop hosted by Heather Powers. So I have been making different ornaments, experimenting with FIMOair  { totally unhappy with the results though  :-( } and craft foam, but the one below is the only one I am satisfied with.
While making my Cross Stitch Ornament I took a few shots to show you how I assembled it all together .

  9. This is so refreshing. I don't see a lot of cross stitch. I'm sure this will be the only cross stitch ornament in this blog hop.
