Merry Christmas Canvas

Hi everyone!  I know it is a busy time of the year for a lot of us.  Hard to get some crafty time in.  My shopping is done and I'm half way through wrapping.  I still have Christmas cards to send out and cookie baking, which will have to wait until the weekend.  I wanted to share a canvas with you today that I created using the new December Mixed Media Paper Kit from Frosted Designs.

I love the kit which is packed with goodies:
You can check out all of the contents here and place an order here in the Frosted Designs Online Store.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Holidays!

JOY Canvas

When I first saw the December challenge at Scrap Around The World, I was so taken by the beautiful images in the mood board by design team member Zaneta Glowa aka Zanka  that I knew instantly that I had to make room in my busy schedule to participate this month. I was inspired by the colors, frames and touches of gold.  A perfect mix to create a 8 x 8 canvas which will be a Christmas present to someone special to me.

Here is the mood board/sketch:

I used a lot of mixed media on my canvas, including some masking, stamping, inking, mists and glitter.   I had a gold frame in my stash which I covered with some modeling past and then inked and added some touches of  textured modeling paste.  I used lots of bits and pieces from my stash and found the beautiful angel image online.

I really enjoyed working on this canvas and want to thank Zanka for hosting the challenge this month and inspiring me to be creative!
