Snowmen Tags and Magnets

Where does it go?
I decided it was time to update my blog
I found these pictures all ready
waiting for directions.
So here goes.
I know that they are a little unseasonal
they were on the top of my painting pile
waiting to be finished.

With sealer/white glue/modge podge
adhere the paper to the tags.
I have used an old hymnal,
scrapbook paper will work as well.
Don't have an old hymnal?
If you send me your mailing address,
I will send pages to you.
How easy is that? 

When they are dry,
sand them and antique them with some
dark chocolate acrylic paint thinned down. 
I use water, faster drying time and they are small.
Anything much bigger than these tags, I use extender in my paint for antiquing.

With Light Cinnamon,
paint in three circles.
C'mon, did you think I was going to give you a pattern for this?
Don't forget a little base for them to stand on.

These are the colors I used for the snowmen.
You will also need an orange, black and a scarf color.
Don't these colors just make you hungry?
(Well maybe not the buttermilk, unless it is in Texas sheet cake.)

I am using a round brush for all of the snowman
and a liner for the arms and scarf.
Highlight the right side of the snowman and the base with Cocoa.

It always is easier to do 12 or more at a time! 

Highlight again with Buttermilk.
If you look close you will see that they are somewhat transparent.
I don't really worry too much about that.

Another highlight with white, 
A nose, eyes and mouth.
Some arms and a scarf
you are good to go.
How fast was that?

update on my trip to Florida
continuing recuperation.
