A Simple DIY Holiday Canvas
Christmas came early for the Xyron Design Team and I love a good present.
We all received a wonderful box of paints and supplies from Derwent Academy.
It’s been a while since I’ve painted with acrylics on canvas so I decided to keep it
simple and festive.
I painted my canvas with a mixture of Cerulean Blue, Phthalo Blue, Ultramarine Blue
and Titanium White. I was going for a “snowy sky”.
I added a few stenciled snowflakes on the corners and then splattered the canvas with
titanium white paint using an old toothbrush. (I kept it really simple)
I used random chipboard letters and painted them with a mixture of Cobalt Blue and
Purple Violet to make them all match.
After the letters had dried, I stamped them with silver ink.
I used my Xyron 9″Creative Station* to add adhesive to the back of the chipboard letters
before adhering them to my canvas. I even used it on the large white wood snowflake.
I added the canvas to an antiqued silver frame for a cute Holiday Decoration.
