I'll Be Home For Christmas


I love to create these beautiful home decor canvases. They make such a great personal gift that will be treasured for years.
I used my favorite @Perfect Paints and beautiful fabric and papers from @Canvas Corp to create this unique piece. Here's how I did it!

First, I painted the inside of the canvas using Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylic Bright Gold and Red Wagon. When dry, I mixed a little Bright Gold into Pearl Plaster and stenciled. If your stencil doesn't fit the piece, let dry and continue in sections. I just love the effect - it really looks like flocked paper.

Next cut out imagines from Canvas Corp Farmhouse Christmas fabric and papers. I love the the fact that this line is black and white so I was able to customize my embellishments . I used Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylics Bright Gold, Red Wagon, Moss Green, Vintage Mercury, Shadow, Aged Copper and Halo.

Lastly, place your embellishments and picture in desired locations and glue.

Super easy and Fun !!!!

Here is a fun fall project to get you started - 

First I used Tim Holtz tattered leaves die to cut out a bunch of leaves. I than painted them using Perfect Paints shimmering matte acrylics Cantaloupe, Cajan Pumpkin, Aged Cooper, Red Wagon and Bright Gold - love these names - .
I wrapped a straw wreath with burlap and glued my leaves in place - add a bow and hang up.
I hung mine in my dining room, I just love how it shimmers !!!!
