A Beautiful Angel Inspired Christmas Mixed Media Canvas How To

Hello there crafty friends!
Michelle here with you today, sharing 
my latest mixed media canvas 
using exclusive products from The Robin's Nest.


  This project is inspired
by the angels announcing the birth of Christ.
From the first view of the beautiful 
"Our Temple Wedding" cardstock, 
I have wanted to use it on a canvas,
and what better season then Christmas
to do so.

Robin's Nest items used:

Additional supplies:
Canvas
Glue 
Ribbon
Pigment Powder
Metallic Paint
Glitter/Metallic Gel Pens
Metallic/Irridescent Mists
Resin Wing/Crown & Cross Embellishments
Pigment Sticks
Paint Brush
Word Embellishment

I began with a 4x12x2 canvas as the base,
as I wanted the entire design of the
"angel" with the trumpet and the fencing.

I wanted a little bit of "glitz"
on the sides, top & bottom of the canvas,
so I chose the TRN Glitter Swirl Vellum.


Once the cardstock & vellum glue set, I
used a metallic rose-gold paint around the 
front edges of the cardstock.


I then applied pigment sticks in white, gold & silver,
with water to add a bit of depth and texture to the "angel" figure.
I used Mini Dew Drops, along with mist splatter,
as sort of a starry snowy sky.



I used wired gold ribbon to make a bow & tendrils, 
and added dew drops to pigment powdered 
resin crown/wing embellishment, 
and glued it as a center for the bow.


For final touches, I added 
"Luke 2" as reference to scripture,
and a pigment powdered resin cross, 
as well as the wood laser cut word
"Wonderful" to the bottom of the canvas.


And there you have it. This type of 
design would be a perfect addition hanging on the wall
or sitting on a table or shelf.
