Handmade Sparkling Christmas Ornaments Made From Vintage Dictionary Pages By Abbey Road Designs
If you take a close up look at this holiday tree ornament, you will discover that it is made using the pages of an old dictionary. Mixed Media artist Leslie Rottner who sells on Etsy.com paints pages from a vintage dictionary. These pastel colored strips are then applied with adhesive to plastic balls. Ribbons, glitter and embellishments are added. For those of you in Connecticut, Leslie has just opened a small shop in the new SoNo Market Place in South Norwalk, CT.
