Can you believe that Christmas is in the air already? It is amazing how quickly the year went! Well, being it is all about Christmas already, I decided to make a Christmas mixed media canvas for this month’s design team post for Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog.
The Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog offers a monthly challenge for mixed media artists. The theme is anything goes, but you must always use more than one media. There rules can be found here. It’s a great way to show your work and meet other artists. Have a look at the blog. They do have prizes!
This piece was really easy to make. In the background I used texture paste, acrylic paint and gesso. I rolled up strips of scrapbook paper sealing the ends with glue, and cut them in varying lenghts for the tree. I then glued them in place on the decorated canvas adding a trunk and a aniseed for the star. To finish off, I used a make up sponge I went around the edges of the canvas with black pigment ink and added gold leaf in random spots on the canvas.
Now it’s your turn to add your artwork to the The Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge. You can add up to three pieces in each monthly challenge for a chance to win a prize.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you feel inspired!
I love those rolled paper trees, and the papers you’ve chosen work perfectly to give a shabby chic festive look – delightful!
A gorgeous canvas Suzette. The wonderful background shows off your pretty paper tree perfectly xx
Lovely background Suzette and those rolled pieces of Christmas paper have made an amazing tree. So colourful. Great idea for using up bits of dp.
