Hi everyone! December has arrived and now the rush is on for me to finish projects in time for Christmas. Why don't I ever learn and start earlier? Oh well, I did make a reverse altered canvas for a swap with a Christmas/Winter theme that I am sharing with you today.
I loved making this project. I started by giving both the front and back of the canvas a coat of gesso. I then used a Tim Holtz snowflake stencil and Golden's Pearl Mica Flake paste on the back and sides (which I forgot to photograph). A Pion image and Maja Design paper were placed inside the opening after distressing and inking. Various lace trims and beads were added around the frame. A little tree from Joann's and pieces of a winter floral pick were placed along the inside edge. A few bells were added to the cluster. A couple Recollections wooden snowflakes were glue to the background. To finish it off, I added a layered chipboard snowflake from Recollections to the upper left corner and then the wooden Peace ornament to the lower right corner. I made the angel from a mold and attached him to the wooden ornament along with a couple of rhinestones.
In this photograph above, you can see a little bit of the snowflakes that I stenciled and the decorative lace trim placed around the inside of the frame.
While I had the Maja Design papers out, I also made a small tag that came together very quickly. I cut the tag from the papers and layered it onto a kraft tag. Cheesecloth was placed under the tag and a piece of trim from Prima at the bottom. A couple of Recollections snowflakes, rhinestones and a hemp tie completed the tag.
I am entering the canvas in the Winter Magic challenge at A Vintage Journey and also the Home for the Holidays challenge at Frilly and Funkie.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate each of your comments. Have a wonderful week ahead!
