Let it Snow Painted Canvas

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.

Let it Snow Canvas…

Sue Eldred's Let It Snow

After all the Holiday Decorations are down, I like to decorate the house with a Winter theme.

Even though I may not like the cold winter months.

I still find beauty in a blanket of newly fallen snow.

So “Let it Snow”.  (just not too much)
