Hi Artsy Addicts fans!
Peggy Lee here to share with you 
a little mixed media canvas.
Even though it's still November and Thanksgiving is next week.
I have already started listening to Christmas of my favorites is...
Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree
How lovely are Thy Branches
Love that song!!!
So with that I have been playing and creating tree theme artwork.

mixed media canvas
Using a Canvas Corp's canvas
I started by spraying some Heidi Swapp Color Shine
in Tinsel and Teal  and  Perfect Pearls Mists in many colors.
to create the background...adding texture 
with Crafters Workshop stencils 
and stucco/gesso mixture.
To create even more texture-randomly stamp all over canvas
also splatters of Color Shine and Perfect Pearls Mists!!
Cut out Tattered Leaves (Tim Holtz die) out of linen fabric...
colored with Distressed Stains in Bundled Sage and Forest moss.
Edged with Viva Precious Metal Effects Paint in Gold!
Covered the colored, stamps leaves with gel medium to give strength.
which helps shape the leaves in place.
Title "Oh Christmas Tree" hand written and backed in burlap mesh...
same burlap mesh became a tree trunk.
Tree leaves adorn with tiny real pine cones glittered with
Precious Metal Effects Paint in Gold
Garland is Canvas Corps jute rope...I love the woodies feel it gives the tree.

Thanks for stopping in today,
Please leave comments for us with what's your favorite Christmas song!!
Like what music do you listen to while creating?

Happy Holidays,
Peggy Lee
