My new craft toy!

Walnut Hollow Creative Woodburner Value Pen
So I have been wanting to get a wood burning tool for a long time!  And this week I finally got one.  I specifically wanted it for my Nativity puzzle so I could give it a different more rustic look.  Here is my first wood burned puzzle :-) I also decided to try water color paint instead of acrylic paint So it would have more of a muted look.

I am really liking my wood burning tool!  I really like the look it gave the puzzle.  I love how the watercolor turned out too.  After I painted all the pieces I applied a wood stain all over everything. 


  1. I love the new look of the Nativity! Russ says he likes it too. And the scene behind the set looks great.

  2. Thanks Cami:-) I just finished another one and will be posting that one soon!
