White Christmas Canvas
Today I have a fun Christmas canvas to share. I hope you enjoy!
Step One: Cover entire canvas, both the top and all four sides, with a thin layer of gel medium and cover with tissue paper. Set aside to dry.
Step Two: Dip a paintbrush into white paint and flick the paint onto the canvas. Repeat with silver paint.
Step Three: Attach a thin strip of punchinella.
Step Four: Trim around the edge of four strips of fabric with pinking shears and adhere to the canvas.
Step Five: Using a paintbrush, add a fairly thick layer of SnowTex to the bottom of the canvas. Then, using a dry brush technique, add random bits of SnowTex to the remainder of the canvas. While the SnowTex is still wet, sprinkle with glitter and tap off any excess. Set aside to dry.
Step Six: While the canvas is drying, ink a couple of Grungeboard snowflakes with white Distress Stain and dip into glitter while they are still wet. Set aside to dry.
Step Seven: Completely cover one side of an acrylic bird with glitter glue and set aside to dry. Once dry, adhere to bottom right corner of the canvas.
Step Eight: Add remaining embellishments and sentiment.
