Monday - time to show some love for your old supplies. Once again I had this idea swirling around in my head and I had to get it out. I took a break from cleaning to do a little creating. I needed to get this idea out of my head. It is a combination of old and new. It is an old stamp. The flourish is an old die cut with old gold Stickles on it. The Merry Christmas ribbon is old. The doily is old and so is the fabric I used for the accent and the bow. The Authentique paper is new but the other print is old.
This is a six inch canvas. We recently got a new Panera in town and their take out bags have great paper. The canvas is wrapped in paper from Panera. The dark brown that Santa is mounted on is from the bag along with the pleated brown paper on the side. I distressed the edges of the stamped image and the matting around it. I also inked the edges of the canvas.
I am going to enter this into two different challenges.
Virginia View's Challenge - Distressed
Wednesday - Simon Says - which is Christmas/Holidays
This canvas will be for a special friend who will appreciate the work I put into it. I think I will make another one for my oldest daughter.
