Another Christmas Canvas

It's time for the December challenge at Mixed Media Mojo the theme is Sentiment and the twist is NOT to use red of green.

For my DT piece I've made a Christmas Canvas.

I used the same technique as the canvas on my previous post.
I covered the canvas board thickly with gesso and made marks in it, the tiny stars were made using a very small star icing cutter.

I scraped acrylic paint over the dried gesso.

I used my finger to spread some Treasure Pewter over it.

I decorated it by gluing some gauze to the bottom. I embossed the edges and the gauze with shabby white Frantage enamel, I also used it on the star. The words were done on the computer and die cut, I went round the edge with some distress ink and matted them onto die cut black card. I edged the canvas with Gelatos and a damp brush. I added some glass stars.

Here is a closer look at the star.

Thank you for looking at my project, please take a visit to the Mixed Media Mojo blog to take a look at the beautiful things that the rest of the DT have made.
