Zetti Ornament

A Christmas Angel
This month one of the challenges issued in my art group was to create a Zetti Christmas ornament. The only rule is that it's to be sized 4" x 6" - not including the hanger.


I've never created an ornament doll, and I thought I'd answer the challenge. Needless to say, I had a lot of colorful fun!



And since she's my version of a Zetti Christmas angel, she's perfect for the angel challenge over at the new Take a Word challenge site. If you have an opportunity, drop in to see this great new site and wish Marie well in her new venture. You can go there by clicking here.

Hope you have a bright, happy day!

Sorry I am late with my comment this week, Terri. I thought I had started a modest little challenge but it has exceeded all my expectations!!
What can I say about your Zetti angel. I think I am speechless. It is SUPERB and awe-inspiring in its design and vibrant colours. Your work just gets better and better which is hardly possible since you start at the top!!
Thanks so much for taking part in the challenge this week.
