Creative Inspirations: Festive Fun

Image
Hello,
It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations and this weeks challenge is...
FESTIVE FUN
For my creation this week, i decided to make a mixed media christmas canvas. I've been making canvases for the past few months but this is the first christmas one. I painted a flat canvas with natural twine, then created a snowflake stencil and sponged around it in white to get the background. To create the tree, i used panels of christmas papers from Basic Greys 25th &Pine collection, stuck with Modge podge gloss. To embellish the tree i added small blue beads and rainbow sequins and for the tree topper, a large poinsettia.  I finished with a printed sentiment ' o christmas tree'
