So, I had an idea to make a set of canvases for the four seasons. The first would be winter, as that is the season we are in now. Here is the first one:
I think of blues and white when I think of winter, so I blended in various shades of blue acrylic paint for the background and then used a stencil and some white paint in the corners. I then went over the whole thing with some white mica spray to give it sort of "frosty" sparkle. As Christmas comes in winter I used the fronts of the cards I made for DDs, plus some snow flakes and a few other wintery and christmasy bits and pieces. The title is a tag covered in TSS metal and put through the 'bug. I cut out the three winter months from t!ms Lost and Found stack and stuck those in the bottom corner. I edged the whole thing with tissue tape (mainly to hide the messy edges!)
When I showed it to my DDs they said "Oh, it's a Christmas decoration". Ummm... NO!! It's WINTER, not Christmas. Just because it has some Christmas stuff on it, doesn't make it a Christmas decoration!
Anyway, hope everyone has got through the first week of 2011 safely. First week back at work for me :(
