Mixed Media Mojo December Challenge

Oh boy, it is December 1 and it is time to share a new challenge at the Mixed Media Mojo blog

The theme this month is Winter Holidays with the added twist of Sparkle.

As I was looking in an area, I found three finished canvases and an unfinished winter holiday themed canvas.  All the elements were already done.  I finished the project and it is my December project.  All I had to do is fussy cut the mittens and stamp the sentiment and then make a canvas.  The canvas already had the base coat of paint on it.  

.The paper came with the embossed snowflakes already on it.  I adhered the snowman and his hat and scarf.  I added some snowflake stickers around the canvas and on Mr. Snowman.  I drew his twig arms on.  Of course, then the mittens did not work on his twig arms so I tossed them into the snow bank.  I added a layer of sparkly embossing paste around on different areas of the canvas and snowman.  I made it look like he was standing in a snow bank.  I then dabbed on some white gesso to add some depth to the snow bank.  The sentiment was stamped and then embossing paste and gesso were put around the edge.  I am so happy I found this project.  I now have another gift finished for the holidays.

Please come join us at Mixed Media Mojo December challenge.  Remember art is good for the soul and you do need to de - stress a little.
