Hi Everyone it's Danie here today with a little Christmas Canvas Wall Plaque to share with you all. Last week I had received some wonderful coloring products (mists and powder) which I haven't used before so I decided to play with them and incorporate them into my DT post today. Adding color yourself is a great way to create something unique or to coordinate with other items and use some of the wonderful patterned Black and White or lighter colored Papers from the Robin's Nest.
I started with a small Canvas Board which is 5.5 x 7.5 inches and a piece of the Glitter Black and White Swirl Border Paper (which I cut the flourishes out of and placed along the top and bottom of my Canvas). To this I coated it all with some Gesso and rubbed back in some parts to reveal the flourish of my paper more clearly. From a scrap piece of the Damask Black and White Paper I punched some circles using a one and three quarter inch circle punch to create my hanging ornaments with some Ric Rac and Gold Metallic Dew Drops. Other items I have used included some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape with a Music Score Design, A Christmas Sentiment Stamp and a Chipboard Corner Flourish which I painted black and then added a touch of Gold Buff. The coloring of my project was done with a combination of Red, and Gold Mists and the ornaments were colored with some Red Magicals Powder all of which I was trying for the first time. In finishing I inked some edges and did a few doodles here and there with a Black Pitt Big Brush Stampers Pen. This picture doesn't do the wonderful shimmer effect of the mists justice and it is something a little different for me, so I am now thinking this would work great as a Christmas Card Design also.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and until next time Happy Crafting!
