The idea for this canvas is not new, but the materials sure are! The rice paper, washi tape and the wonderful Christmas design papers are all new. The rice paper is adhered directly to the canvas base using a special glue for rice papers, and then covered with a white wash of gesso and water. I used Staz-on for the stamps to ensure that they would not smere for the next steps. I inked the edges of the paper strips for the tree with Distress ink, and then adhered them using decoupage glue.
Den stämplade texten klipptes i bitar som fästes med decoupagelim. Guldflakes ligger som snö på grenarna här och där.
The stamped sentiment was cut into pieces and adhered using decoupage glue. The amazing gold flakes are sitting on the branches as if they were snow.
Inte en stjärna i topp, men däremot en julröd blomma. Glitterpasta ger den lite extra julig känsla.
This tree didn't get a star at the top, but instead a Christmas red flower. I covered it with glitter paste for that sparkly feeling.
