Winter Canvas

I'am back on the blog today to feature another "Winter" inspired project . There is still six days left to enter your "winter" piece into our Monthly Challenge. For all of the details, head here. For my post today,  I created a winter canvas.

Supplies Used: Ranger/Tim Holtz - Ground Expresso Distress Ink, Distress Crackle Paint - Clear Rock Candy. Ranger/Dylusions - Dylusions Paint: White Linen. Sizzix/Tim Holtz - Holiday Words: Block. Tim Holtz Ideaology - 6x8 Burlap Panel. Emerald Creek - Iridescent Shimmer  & Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder. Viva Decor - Inka Gold: Old Gold & Brown Gold. Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts - VersaMark. Bo Bunny Sleigh Ride - Blizzard, Logs & Tradition. Bazzill Cardstock - Java. May Arts Twine - White.

To begin, I prepped the background of my burlap panel, using a blending tool and inking 1/2" in around all the edges of the panel. Once the edges were inked, I sprinkled Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder around all four edges and embossed them. 

Once the background of the panel was finished, I set it aside and started working on the Cedar Trees. I covered all three cedar trees with Brown Gold Inka Gold. Once the Inka Gold was dry, I covered each cedar tree with a layer of Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint and set them aside to dry.

Once the cedar trees were drying, I moved on to the Plain Banners. I covered the three plain banners with Old Gold Inka Gold. Once all three banners were covered, I applied a layer Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint over top and set them aside to dry.

I wanted to add something to the plain banners, so I pulled out my stash of Mini Wood Snowflakes. Before embossing the snowflakes, I painted them with a layer of Dylusions Paint in White Linen. Once the paint was dry, I covered them in a layer of VersaMark and then sprinkled Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder overtop of them and embossed them. 

For the finishing touches on my winter canvas, I added two layers of patterned paper from Bo Bunny's Sleigh Ridge Collection. I also wanted to add the word "winter" somewhere on my canvas, so I cut it out using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix - Holiday Words: Block die, attaching it to the top of my photo. For the last of the finishing touches, I added some Iridescent Shimmer Embossing Powder to parts of the edges of the patterned paper. 

Here is the finish Winter canvas with all of the elements put together.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my winter canvas. We can't wait to see your project or projects for the Monthly Challenge. Make sure to check back regularly to see what the rest of the design team members are creating.
