Christmas Canvas using Vintage Street Market products!

Well, I got my Christmas inspiration a little late this year! But no worries, Christmas will be back in about 362 days! Didn't mean to frighten you!

I made this canvas using Vintage Street Market's December kit, which is unfortunately sold out. They have lots of other great Christmas items available. I also used Delta Ceramcoat in antique white, fire red and metallic silver. There are some touches of Liquitex gel media, both glass beads (on the torch and girls hats) and opaque white flakes (the bottom edge). I love these media. You just have to have some patience, which is a virtue we can all do more with. Right? Right!

I will have some more projects up very shortly! The trip to New Orleans right before the holidays was wonderful, but got me off of my crafty postings.

Best of the New Year to each of my followers!

Having Fun with the December Daily (and Crafty Secrets)!

I am loving working on my December daily. I have never tried this and am sort of making my version up as I go. I am doing digital layouts with the Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD from Crafty Secrets. I am doing a 5 inch by 8 inch size and leaving a bit of room on one edge for binding when I print them out. What I am enjoying the most is looking at the vintage and not so vintage decorations we have and writing what I recall about them. I really wish I had something like this from my grandparents or great grandparents, so I hope it will be treasured in the future.

Have a wonderful week!
