Mini Christmas Canvas (Two) decorated on both sides

Hello again and yes with another Christmas Tree Canvas or two
With all the boxes of stuff open in the craft room
I decided to decorate a small 8" canvas
on both sides to place on a shelf or windowsill.
I covered the canvas front and back with black gesso.
Gluing all the elements to sketched shapes for the trees.
I then covered these with black gesso and highlighted
with various Treasure Gold pastes.
Finishing with tiny red rhinestones.
Here is the result which now sits on our dresser.
8" Christmas Canvas
As you can see I used a stack of buttons on the front three trees above
also around the frame at the back of the canvas below.
I splattered white paint around the background and over the reindeer.
Rear view of 8" Christmas canvas
The inspiration for the canvas above came after completing another 8" canvas
made for my son and daughter in law to take over to her parents
in Finland later this month, did I say that I find making them 
just a bit addictive.  
Here is the canvas which will be bound for Finland on Sunday.
For the base I glued a mesh over the canvas before covering
with gesso and gluing the elements in place

Margaret's Christmas Boards
I am very pleased to also share these photos of two lovely boards
which were finished at home after our last workshop. 
I believe Margaret has used various die cut leaves and flowers
 to great effect, the baubles look very festive.

Margaret's Tree Board

Both boards are wonderful Margaret.


  1. Truly stunning. You will have to give me a nudge in September next year so that I don't have an excuse for not getting one made in time for Christmas. Xxxxx

  2. Fabulous Sheel - you have been very busy

  3. I love both sides of your Christmas tree canvas and the one bound for Finland, they are delightful. Margaret's boards are gorgeous, a very good use of die cut leaves and flowers xx
