Well, there you have it, plenty of chance to become creative, - sometimes the best antidode to this super busy time.
Anyway, on to my project. Unfortunately the light has been so bad here lately that I have no process photos, but I'll try and give some steps on how I put this together.
I started by covering the canvas with gesso and when dry added a number of different chip board and metal pieces that I had been hoarding for just a project such as this.
Next everything was cover with a number of different colours of Decoart paints, until I was happy with the overall effect.
I also added a Sizzix tree die cut I had coloured with various Distress Inks.
Because stars were to be a feature of the challenge I then added some stars using a couple of Tim Holtz stencils and some texture paste and while that was still wet sprinkled on some Distress Glitter Dust in Vintage Platinum in various places, including on the tree.
A die-cut sentiment, cut from metallic Kraft card was added in the background.
And finally one of Tim Holtz Paper Dolls.
.And some texture paste sprinkled with Clear Distress Glitter Dust to give it a bit more of a wintry feel still.
Some berries and die - cut branches, little cones and leaves finished it all off.A VINTAGE JOURNEY,
and hopefully you will find the time to play along with our challenge, - we always love to see what you create.
