Recently I have been getting an urge to branch out and try my hand at Mixed Media canvas work. When I came across the deer at the 99¢ store I knew I had found what to try and work around! Plus, it went well with the December Challenge over at Creative Embellishments that had already put the idea of doing some winter work in my mind!
Unfortunately I had already started, and almost completed this project before I bought my webcam, so there is no video of my process…which spanned over multiple days! But I did take a lot of close up photos for a better look!
|I used Amazing Cast Resin with the Prima Large Flourish Mould them more Amazing Cast Resin to “glue” the flourishes, Tim Holtz Wood Slices, and canvas together.

- I came across the deer in the Christmas Ornament section of the 99¢ store, and I am a sucker for shiny, blue objects!
The tag I made for the “Glorious Holiday Tag Swap!” hosted by Donna (bonprof) over at scrapbook.com!
I sprayed the canvas, texture pasted the canvas, sprayed it some more, and added some glitter paste in select spots! (Good news, I finally got a webcam, someday I hope to make videos…it is just so much easier than typing it all out! I assume anyhow, at least I’ll be able to say “Here, watch this!” LOL)
I wrapped the gold wire around a tape roll (packing tape size) to make the wreath base, then just started sticking the pine needle die cuts around it. The ornaments are from ReneaBouquets (link in product list), as is the glitter I used to “fill in” some of the areas of them. I embossed them with Red Geranium Embossing Powder (Ranger) and added a light coat of Rose Gold Metallique Wax (Prima). I did the same to the Merry Christmas.
