Where The Heart Is Challenge #3: Winter Blues

Happy Monday!
Well, it's time for the new challenge for Where the Heart Is Challenge Blog.
Our theme for November will be Winter Blues. 
I love winter, although where I live do not have the season of winter, but i just love this season because it reminds me of Christmas! Yay!

This is my project for this month Challenge, a winter blues mixed media canvas with Lacy Sunshine - Melanie Boo's- The Christmas Star.


I colored my image with color pencil, then i cut out my image with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals dies and i distress the border with the Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass. 
To begin my canvas background, the first step i do is put on the color papers and lace with the Golden Gel Medium on the canvas.
Next, I cover the canvas with Gesso before applying any color on top.
Then, i apply my first thin layer of the Distress Ink - Broken China through out the canvas. After it's dry, i tab on the Broken China with Distress Paint around the canvas border. I prefer to tab the color randomly as i wanted the color appear as not smooth so that it creates the layers on the canvas.

After the color is dry, I apply some Golden Glass Beads Gel Medium at the border. 
It help to create the snowy look after it dry. 
Last, i decorate the canvas with the snowflake die cuts and some rhinestone and sequins. 

Here is the closer look for my canvas, hope you like my project today.
