Another project that started simple, then got re-purposed into something else entire.
Wife wanted a tree to paint on a 12x30 board we had, so I made a very simple bottom tree section with a snow highlight, then kept propagating it up smaller and smaller until I had a complete tree, and then scored it onto the board.
She has not painted that board yet and as busy as she is, I imagine it will be a ‘thing’ for her to do for next Christmas.
Meanwhile, I was making some hand off earrings for her to give to people she interacts with that do not rate an actual Xmas gift, and I remembered the tree.
So, sized to earring dimensions and then engraved on some 2-color (something on white) scraps I had laying around.
Green/white was the winner and I made a pile of them for her.
I did a reverse engrave on some red on white I had. So the tree got engraved instead of the snow. It is the upper red one in the picture.
I thought it came out neat, since it has a texture to it from the engrave. (Wife looked at it and did that thing with her mouth, though. So I guess it is guy thing ‘cool’.)
