We're getting very close to the big day. Is everyone getting excited? I have one last project to show you. Do you remember my Joy Mini-canvas? Well I had one canvas left over from that project, and I think I've come up with something cute.
To start, I chose the paper I wanted to use. I have some left over dictionary pages from an old project, so I figured it would work perfectly for this.
I used my Zig 2 Way glue to adhere the dictionary page to the canvas.
Next, I chose my stamp. I also chose two different markers, one a light green and one a dark green, to ink the stamp.
I used the light green to cover the entire stamp. Then I used the darker green around the outer edges for shading.
Next, I used a pale yellow pen to add highlights of color around the edges of the canvas.
Next up, I used my Zig Photo Signature pen in Red to add a bit of doodling around the edge and to also add "lights" to the tree. I chose this pen because of the small point, which is what I wanted for the lights.
Now to add a bit of embellishment.. I added on a strip of pom-pom ribbon.
Now we couldn't let this project go without a bit of bling. I used my Wink of Stella pens to add additional lights to the tree. Now, when you move the canvas, the lights will actually twinkle.
To finish the tree, I added a star to the top. I also used my Zig Writer in Black on a sentiment stamp.
The finishing touch is to add a ribbon hangar and a couple of jingle bells, then a few sequins to act as tows under the tree. I love the sound of bells lightly jingling. I already know who the lucky recipient of this adorable canvas will be.
