Not long now.... 

A lovely project brought to you by design team member Jamie Pope... 

We're getting very close to the big day.  Is everyone getting excited?  I have one last project to show you.  Do you remember my Joy Mini-canvas? Well I had one canvas left over from that project, and I think I've come up with something cute.

To start, I chose the paper I wanted to use.  I have some left over dictionary pages from an old project, so I figured it would work perfectly for this.

I used my ZIG 2 Way glue to adhere the dictionary page to the canvas.


Next, I chose my stamp.  I also chose two different markers both are ZIG Art and Graphic twin Water Colour Pens, one is a light green and one is a dark green, to ink the stamp.

I used the light green to cover the entire stamp.  Then I used the darker green around the outer edges for shading.

Next, I used a pale yellow ZIG Art and Graphic twin water colour pen to add highlights of color around the edges of the canvas.

Next up, I used my ZIG Photo Signature pen in Red to add a bit of doodling around the edge and to also add "lights" to the tree.  I chose this pen because of the small point, which is what I wanted for the lights.

Now to add a bit of embellishment..  I added on a strip of pom-pom ribbon.


Now we couldn't let this project go without a bit of bling.  I used my ZIG Wink of Stella glitter pens to add additional lights to the tree.  Now, when you move the canvas, the lights will actually twinkle.

To finish the tree, I added a star to the top.  I also used my ZIG Writer in Black on a sentiment stamp.

The finishing touch is to add a ribbon hanger and a couple of jingle bells, then a few sequins to act as tows under the tree. I love the sound of bells lightly jingling.  I already know who the lucky recipient of this adorable canvas will be.
