2 new Mixed Media Canvases

Hi Everyone,

Wow, Christmas is just around the corner, gosh feels like it's come up too fast!  My son is very excited at this time each year as he celebrates his birthday on the 23rd December!!!  Tomorrow he turns '10', double figures!  He is soooo excited it's unbearable he reckons, LOL!!

Well, I wanted to share a couple of smallish canvases I had done recently.  My daughter finished her Kinder year on Monday, she had an awesome time this year, totally loved Kindy and enjoyed every minute of it.  I wanted to get a little pressie for her teacher so I decided to make a canvas for was a little nervewracking watching her open it, first time I have given something I have actually made!!  She loved it, wanted to know how I did it and everything!  Rachel helped me with some of it and made it's own gift bag!  She stuck some sequins and glitter onto a brown paper bag, then we spritzed some glimmermist (pink of course!) all over the front, it turned out really good.....although yeah I forgot to take a pic of the bag...d'oh!

Anyway, here's the canvas I made for Rhonda :)

The next canvas is a Christmas tree, I wanted a dimensional tree for this.  I brought some Christmas Holly Leaves Garland from The Reject Shop ($2) and cut it in lengths to suit and hot glue gunned it down, I love it, I've put it on a table next to my front door with a couple of Chrissy decos.

My new fave sprays are Perfect Pearls Mists in Heirloom Gold and Biscotti, they leave an awesome color and shimmer, love them.

I have lots to get organised, wrapping birthday and Christmas pressies, baking for both and the usual preparations that come with this time of year!!  It really is a wonderful time of the year, I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and lots of good tidings and cheer!!!  Enjoy and thanks for looking :)
