The Craft Box Let It Snow Canvas Trilogy

Good afternoon and welcome to my second project using the December Craft Box. In the mad run up to Christmas I completely forgot to do this project and then found these 3 small 7 x 5 inch canvases when having a tidy up of some old crafting stuff and knew what I wanted to do with them straight away.

Using a mixture of baby blue, pearl ice blue and blanc acrylic paints, I painted a random background before adding some snowflake die cuts along the edges and corners and then covered all the edges with Snowtex to give each canvas a snowy texture.




I added lots of goodies from the December Christmas Craft Box including the Christmas Tree Sniparts and that gorgeous snowflake Snipart frame, both of which I painted white. I used the snowflake glass stickers in each corner and then added lots of the beaded snowflakes and gems everywhere.


On the centre panel I added the gorgeous Snowflake Suzanne from Art by MiRan, also adding some Snowtex around her. I added some of flowers, pine cones and berries to this canvas as well, covering them all again with more Snowtex. I love that stuff!


I then finished off each canvas using lots of Stickles glitter on all the die cuts,, just to make it really sparkle and although you can't see it well in the photos,the shimmer from the paint and the sparkle from the gems and glitter glue make this project really shine. These will look fabulous as part of my Christmas/winter decorations.
