Since I've been on a roll this weekend, I figured I'd get a jump start on next month, especially as it's just a few days away anyway. I do have a quick question, do you know yet what the themes will be starting in January?
Today I have a fun mini-canvas project. It's the perfect size to be hung from a door knob as decoration. Or, If you have that really large gift, it can work as a package tag by simply adding a small tag with the recipient's name. So let's jump on in, and I'll show you how it was made.
I started with three 4in x 4in mini canvases. I painted all three with my red ZIG Painty FX pen.
While the paint was drying, I cut three pieces of burlap to 3 1/4 in x 3 1/4 in. Once the paint was dry, I adhered the burlap to the canvases.
Next, I painted my chipboard letters with a black ZIG Painty FXpen. These pens make painting so easy. No brush, no pouring paint.
To add a bit of detail to the canvas, I used a ZIG Posterman ExtraFine pen in white to doodle a simple border on two of the canvases.
Next, I adhered the chipboard letters to the canvases.
You know all of my projects have bling and this one is no exception. I used my ZIG Wink of Stella brush pen in Glitter Orange to add color and shimmer to two chipboard bells. Just a light coating of ink and they have a magnificent shimmer. This is my first time using the Winkof Stella brush pen and I have to say I'm hooked!
Now, we just need to pull everything together. I added flowers to the corners of two of the canvases, then added the chipboard bells to the remaining canvas. Lastly, I layered and adhered the canvases to each other and added a bit of ribbon to use as a hanger.
Closer and closer we get to the festive day. Are you ready?
