Christmas Elves & Fairies Canvas

Hello lovelies, Sam here !! It's time for a little extra Inspiration!! Sorry I'm running a little late today but I hope you like my canvas using last years Christmas Perfect Partners range from Sheena Douglass, including the sweet little elves and fairies!
Here we see through a window scene to find those same fairies and elves hard at work getting the house ready for Christmas while the humans are asleep!!
Hehehehe I love Christmas magic!!

Step 1 This is on a 12" by 10" canvas board firstly texturised using tissue, beads and Bindex and painted with black gesso.

Step 2 Spiderwebbing (a fine netting type material) I used to create a curtain effect.
When dry add dimension using Pebeo empire gold gilding wax.


Step 3 Next die cut, stamp and paint the desired amount of embellishments to create your scene! I took two elves one fairy, six baubles, 4 holly sprigs, 7 light strings, 3 pine cones and a load of twigs and fern branches! One of the elves would've been sitting however with some careful snipping it's easy to manipulate him to a different standing position!!

Gilding wax was used liberally and glossy accents to make the baubles like glass! Hope you all like it as much as I did creating it! Any questions please feel free to ask!!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
