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!

. . . Thanks for stopping by!
