Holiday Canvas Craft

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Holiday crafts aToday 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.

IMG_8108Step 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.

IMG_8109Step Two: Cover the igloo shape with some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

IMG_8110Step Three:  Reassemble the igloo die cut on the gray igloo shape.  The Clear Double sided adhesive will hold the brick in place.

IMG_8112Step Four:  Using alcohol markers add shading to the igloo.  I used B60, B63, and B66 copic markers plus the blender.

IMG_8113Step Five:  Repeat step four with the die cut ice block from the Igloo die set.

IMG_8114Step 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.

IMG_8115Step Seven:  Die cut the sleigh from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock and the Santa’s Sleigh die set.

IMG_8107Step 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.
