Mixed Media Christmas Canvas!!!

Hello my dear friends,  I hope you are all having a fabulous crafty week so far!!

I wanted to share this Mixed Media Canvas that I did a couple of  weekends 
ago.  We were gifted the blank 10x8 canvas when we attended our monthly crop.
and we were set a challenge to create somthing .

I decided to go down the road of a Blue Christmas theme and I love how it
turned out.  

My image and the papers for my hand made flowers came from Mintay's
new collection called Cosy Evenings.   I was so very lucky to have won
4 12x12 paper collections along with 4 6x6 paper pads to match.

The frame was gifted to me by my friend Jean who used Air Dry Clay
to make it.  I had some boring straws which I painted with Gesso and
then used Washi tape in various shades of blue and then sprinkled
some Galmour dust over two of them.

The large mesh flower is from Petaloo and the dried blue leaves are actually
from a pot pourri pack I bought just for the pine cones and leaves. I used Gesso
on everything to soften it down.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit me, I really appreciate you
taking the time out of your day.

That's all from me for today, but I hope you come back and see me soon.
