Christmas Canvas- Peace on Earth

Hey, Peeps. I've been having some fun with this new mixed media canvas piece, available in my Etsy shop here.
This one is done in my latest fave, neutral tones. I don't know about you, but I like to keep some of my Christmas pieces up most of the year (why not?), so the neutral palette is especially conducive to displaying it anytime. Also, I do like to break some rules. ;)
This is an 8x10" canvas and is light, so it can be hung, propped, or place on a tabletop easel.
I used my original Peace on Earth tag stencil with some molding paste. I'll do a tutorial in a later post since I have to pick up my daughter from college today (yipee!).

I used some embossing powder, black gesso, inks...

a hand carved stamp image with white embossing powder...

lots of embellies...

an embossed enamel snowflake medallion...

a canvas flower with twine, a vintage button, branch punchies...

some beautiful vintage lace...

and some joy metal letters, among other techniques and embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my latest original piece. Thanks for looking!!!
Fondly, Tami

    Hugs from Spain

    1. Thanks so much, mamablitger! By the way, I LOVE Spain. I played in an orchestra (Spanish premier of Mendolsohn's Elijah) in Spain- Salamanca, Ponferrada, Leon, and Galicia. It was magical, and I LOVED the people. You all were so friendly! Fondly, Tami


I love hearing what you have to say!
