Ho, Ho, Ho - A Christmas Canvas

This canvas was just fun fun using an 8 x 8 stretched canvas.

First I painted the canvas in a fun green acrylic paint. Then using mod podge glued down various pieces of pattern paper for the background. The center section where the fun tree is, is actually a paper Christmas napkin!

This is the actual package of napkins:

How much fun is that? I keep finding cool looking napkins at dollar and discount stores! To create the tree in the middle I adhered it to some grungeboard and used mod podge to adhere. Then using dimensionals I adhered it to the canvas to create dimension. Then I used stickles for the glitter on it.

I used some stamps on this as well. In the background I used some Unity Stamp Co. background stamps. The Santa image is by Tim Holtz and the "believe" is by Memory Box.

Well that's all for now!

Stay tuned for a new release from Queen Kat Designs tonight.

Till later!
