Merry Christmas Canvas

I am up on the Bo Bunny blog today with this Merry Christmas Canvas 

My eldest daughter loves to decorate for Christmas so I decided to surprise her with this light up canvas using the fabulous Silver and Gold collection. The collection contains deep reds and greens but it also has a lighter delicate side of rich golds and creams. When I saw the reindeer on the 12 by 12 chipboard sheet, I was totally inspired to create a scene and for him to take centre stage.
I created the background by tearing strips of paper from the collection and layering them up around the canvas, I covered them with a thin layer of gesso to soften the look further. I added some Frosting Jewels to the reindeer to give him extra texture.
I took one of  the large doilies and cut the middle out to make an arch shape over the top of the reindeer. The 12 by 12 chipboard sheet also has these cute ornaments that I dangled from the driftwood tree. I used a little talc to take the stickiness away as I wanted them to be able to move freely.
