This week at Create with Connie and Mary there is a fantastic theme challenge to round out the holiday season – Let it Snow.
For my creation this week I thought I’d share something I made for my holiday decor, a wonderful canvas project.
First, I started with a flat canvas that was white. I cut out some snowflakes with my Big Shot and the Snowflakes #2 die using some bulk Decor Element sheets. I then adhered to the canvas.
After that, I took a mixture of Champagne Mist shimmer paint and Baja Breeze Reinker. I painted the canvas all over except for the very bottom. I masked it out so it would look like snowbank. After all the painting was done, I used some sponges and my Not Quite Navy ink and sponged around the outer edge.
Next, I adhered the Dasher Decor Element. Being that this was on a textured surface, it was hard to adhere so after it was all on I painted it with some Modge Podge to make sure it’d stay put.
Lastly, I added some Basic Rhinestones and with my Tombow added a bead of glue and some Dazzling Diamonds on the top of the snowbank and under the feet of Dasher.
This was a super fun project to make and I got rave reviews over the holiday season!
Let’s see what you all come up with for this challenge – head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and join us!
