Today over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog a fun collection of Holiday DIY projects are being shared. Trust me when I say you do not want to miss out on this collection of fun holiday inspired craft projects.
Today I am creating a holiday themed canvas using some of the holiday inspired dies.
Step One: Die cut an igloo and ice bank using the some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock from the Igloo die set. Die cut a second igloo shape in Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Cover the igloo shape with some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Three: Reassemble the igloo die cut on the gray igloo shape. The Clear Double sided adhesive will hold the brick in place.
Step Four: Using alcohol markers add shading to the igloo. I used B60, B63, and B66 copic markers plus the blender.
Step Five: Repeat step four with the die cut ice block from the Igloo die set.
Step Six: Repeat step four with the sign post from the Igloo die set, but this time use brown alcohol markers. I used E31, E33, and E37 copic markers. Stamp in Brown ink the ‘north pole’ sentiment from the Cute Winter Sentiments stamp set.
Step Seven: Die cut the sleigh from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock and the Santa’s Sleigh die set.
Step Eight: Color up the sleigh with alcohol markers and assemble using Kids Choice Glue.
Step Nine: For the canvas, I took a 8×8 inch wood canvas and painted it white with some Gesso. Then I sprayed and splattered the canvas with some blue spray ink. Finally I added a layer of heavy gesso to the bottom of the canvas to act as a layer of snow.
Step Ten: Adhere the the Igloo die set and Santa’s Sleigh die set to the canvas using Kids Choice Glue. Finally I wanted an additional sentiment on the canvas, so I die cut the Way with Words: Peace on Earth die set with some Silver Gray Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a metallic gold paint pen, I added some gold detailing to the flourishes and stars and adhered the sentiment onto the canvas.
I just love how fun this canvas turned out. It feels so wintery and holiday fun without to being a hit you over the head project!
