What a magical time of year Christmas is, filled with hope, joy and love. But for many it is a difficult time because of loss of loved ones, jobs, health and other events that happen in life. My prayer is that my canvas today can bring merriment to your day and inspire you. Being inspired by our December mood board was not difficult, such pretty vibrant colors.
I started by adhering different laces to my canvas and giving it a nice coat of gesso to prep for my paint and sprays. Using 2″x 2″ canvases to create my Christmas tree, I first applied scrapbook papers and then for texture and interest used our Twilight stencil to add stars to the top. Christmas sprigs and pods were added to the sides and prepped with gesso then sprayed with gorgeous Colorations Sprays in Peacock Feathers and Sky.
Homemade snow was made by mixing equal parts of Sorbet Linen, baking soda and school glue, while still wet Diamond Dust glitter was sprinkled on top. Christmas berries were glued into place, a red bow was placed on top of the tree and my title was edged with Peacock Feather spray. More Linen was dabbed here and there and then Diamond Dust glitter was added for a holiday sparkle. Wishing you a time of Peace and Comfort…. xoxo Toni
