In staying with my theme from the last three seasons, I created both a seasonal mixed media canvas and tag.


For this canvas, I started out with Spellbinders Snowflake Pendant 2013 dies cut in chipboard. I adhered them to the canvas with Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium. White tissue paper was then adhered over the top of the canvas to cover the snowflakes and to add texture. The paper was then covered with Liquitex Glass Beads Acrylic Texture Gel. The beads add awesome texture...it reminds me of snow. A mixture of one part Sea Mist Acrylic Paint and two parts water was brushed over parts of the canvas to give a little bit of color. More of the Spellbinders Snowflakes were cut out and covered with Tim Holtz Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and then covered with Recollections Fine Glitter. Winter was stamped with TH Tall Text stamps in Distress Embossing Ink. It was then heat embossed with silver embossing powder and the letters wee outlined with a Sakura White Gelly Roll pen.


Lorenna was stamped on old book paper and her dress was stamped on Core-dinations Core Couture paper. The wings are Julie Nutting Wings. Clear sequins were added to the dress and wings. The lace for the ruffle and her shawl are from Hobby Lobby. She was popped up with foam tape for dimension.


Here are all four of my seasonal canvases.


For my tag, I used Lorenna again because she's my favorite and I love her dress :) The papers for this tag are from My Mind's Eye O Christmas Tree stack. The side swirls are Spellbinders Fanciful Holidays dies. The poinsettias were cut from the paper. Merry Christmas is from the Tim Holtz Mini Holidays #3 stamp set. It was stamped with TH Distress Embossing Ink and then heat set with red embossing powder. Every other fold of the dress was adhered with foam tape.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

  2. I love your Winter Angel canvas, Lisa. I think Lorena is my favorite, too! There are so many different ways to decorate her dress, I wanted to try a long velvety dress, but it just wouldn't come together in time. I will work on it for a future blog post. Your set of seasonal canvases make for a wonderful wall gouping. I love your tag, too. The print is awesome, the flower looks like a poinsetta, perfect for the "Christmas Season". Have a great week, my friend. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  47. My sweetest friend, I knew winter would be my favorite of this beautiful set... and indeed that has come to be! You have captured the ethereal beauty of winter to absolute perfection in that canvas. The background is stunning! I had never heard of that stuff you used.. the beads remind me of snow, too! The snowflakes are exquisite. The star of the canvas could not be more lovely.. she is amazing, my dear friend. The lace for her shawl and dress are magnificent. Your Christmas tag is also a masterpiece. Her dress is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Gosh Lisa. You are incredible and I love every tiny facet of these projects. :o) Beautifully crafted, as always!

    Hugs and blessings!
