Christmas Canvas

I can't believe its December already and it's time for Altered Eclectics last challenge of the year and as always the theme is anything goes as long as it's mixed media/altered art. This challenge will last for two months.

For my DT piece I've done a Christmas canvas.

I thickly covered a canvas board with gesso and used a pokey tool to make some marks, they're supposed to be holly leaves.

I scraped some green acrylic paint over the dried gesso .

Then I spread some Treasure Pewter over the canvas.

This is a close up of the canvas.

I decorated the canvas with die cut holly leaves and handmade roses and a decorated ATC size piece of stampboard. I covered the leaves and flowers with stickles.

Here is a close up of the roses.

For the centre piece I used an ATC size stampboard. I stamped the image [The Artistic Stamper] and coloured it with felt tips. I covered it with crackle paint and embossed the edges with gold embossing powder.

This is a close up of the crackle.

I hope you'll be able to join in with the challenge, the rest of the DT have made some fabulous samples and they would love you to take a look.

Thank you for looking.
