mixed media canvas "winter" {DT work for heartfelt creations}

hello scrappy friends!

today i've got a mixed media project to share with you. i used HEARTFELT CREATIONS' ornamental light collection to create this canvas


heartfelt creations products used on this project:

i begun by covering a 28 x 30 cm canvas with gesso. then i colored it with TIM HOLTZ “weathered wood” distress ink pad. to create the background frame i used the following HC stamp sets: HC holiday haven set and HC shabby chic lace set – with brown ink pad and HC holiday haven set, HC broken cinder blocks set and HC tattered background set with red and blue ink. 

i stamped the note sheet from HC book frame 1 set in the middle of the canvas. then using the crafter’s workshop "wood grain" and "circle explosion" masks with modeling paste i created the dimensional pattern on the canvas. after it was dry i gave a bit of colour to some of the white dots with PANPASTEL hansa yellow tint.  i cut the lamp post, the green swirls and the poinsettias from pattern paper; colored the flowers with COPIC CIAO markers and to finish them off added a bit of glitter in the middle.

for the birdies i used blue pattern paper, brown ink, stamp and die cut three small birds {HC brookside manor set and HC garden romance die} and add them to the canvas.

the doll i sketched first and then cut out the different elements from HC frosty blanket paper collection. if you are interested in my sketch CLICK HERE - you are welcome to print it off and create your own paper doll. 

 i've copied the sketch as many times as i needed to cut out all different shapes. then i outlined the ready elements on pattern paper and cut them out. some i glued upside down on the pattern paper {the smaller elements} to make sure that i’ll have the right size.

when the dress elements were ready, i stamped the swirl from HC holiday haven set with versamark “watermark “ ink and added embossing powder to create a glimmer pattern. then i distressed the edges with brown ink and begun assembling the paper doll. once it was glued on the canvas, i added the little poinsettias {cut out from the patter paper} and the PRIMA flower center pearl to decorate the dress.

i die cut the little snowflakes with spellbinders “create a flake 1” die and the corner with HC decorative butterfly / border die from glittery paper.

thank you for taking the time to visit me!
