Because I was making a Middle Eastern town, I was looking for more earth tones as opposed to greens and reds. In the end though, I decided the earth tones needed a lot of work. It ended up looking far too bland. So, I blinged it up.
Look at how wonderful that dome looks. It covers beautifully. A little really does go a long way. I'll definitely be using them again.
For variety, I used the copper Perfect Pearls on the last dome. I loved the way that one looks also. In order to get a nice line, I used blue painters tape and very carefully pulled it back off the paper after I was done with the domes.
If you have made it through this entire post, I should give you the one bit of information I think would be helpful when making this advent calendar. All of the boxes for the calendar are in the top row on Christmas Village. They are keys 7 - 10. But there is no information on the packaging to tell you how many of each you need. Here is what I learned:
1 of the large box (Key 7)
8 of the tall skinny box (Key 8)
6 of the medium box (Key 9)
10 of the small box (Key 10)
|I don't know why this insists on going sideways but you can still see the boxes.|
If you want to see my other advent calendar you can see it here. Later in the week I hope to have a couple more advent calendars to show you. This one is going to Moma's church for the kids to use this year.
