A Christmas Wish

It's Music at FSC!
Come join in the fun, and create something based around music...
the interpretation is up to you - from a song, to a dance, to instruments.
I have chosen a christmas theme for my interpretation.
Marina at Cottage Crafts is offering an online voucher to her store for the winner,
runners up and spotlights are up for grabs to!
The Fashionettes have some gorgeous inspiration for you so please pop on over to
FSC and check them all out and leave a little love...

My piece is a canvas to decorate my home with.
I have been so inspired lately by people working on canvas so I decided to give it a go.
This one is a 9" x 12" piece.
I have layered some different blues in acrylics and inks,
pasted a torn up hymn song (Silent Night),
inked, painted and stamped some more.
Then stencilled into the corners, and built up with texture paste and painted some more.
The bauble stamp is a new one from Stampers Anonymous which I have coloured with distress markers and coated with clear embossing powder.
The chain is a metal necklace from an op shop and I have coloured it with viva paint...
which I also used to highlight other textured areas.
The words are chipboard and have been painted, sanded and a little stickles added for sparkle
...and rhinestones to finish with!

This is a close up of some of the detail.


I am entering this into the following challenges ~
