"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

Nice Ornament, Terrible Photo

No matter what kind of lighting situations I tried, I simply could not take a photo without washing out the more delicate blues and greens in the Blue River Glades thread. To get a more accurate picture of the colors, scroll down to the previous post.

Pinned on a ball 3 inches in diameter, four of the Fandango motifs with four of the small connecting motifs fit just perfectly around the middle. I am very pleased with the result.


  1. That looks very nice!! I really like the design! :)

  2. Oh, that's SO pretty. What a splendid idea.

  3. It really is a sensational shape. I love what you have done with it - in spite of the lighting!
    Fox : )

  4. Jane's 'Fandango' pattern with the 2-color split rings looks great, and has so many possibilities!

    I love it when things work out, such as this example, when the motifs fit perfectly around the ball!

    I always say that one can never have too many ornaments, and these pretty styrofoam balls are great to work with!

  5. What a great idea to use Jane's Fandango on?! Love the colors against the red ball ornament.
