illuminated Christmas Canvas Tutorial by Andrea Gomoll

Soooo . . . Halloween is over and now we are officially taking large steps towards the Holiday Season. If you are anything like me, you just LOVE Christmas Time, all the decorating, beautiful lights everywhere, cozy late afternoons curled up on the Sofa with a Cup of Coffee / Tea / Hot Chocolate and your favourite Book / Magazine / Movie while it is cold outside, preparing little Surprises for your loved ones . . . I love this time of Year! So-once Halloween is over I officially start with the first Holiday Projects-because-hey hey-only  7 Weeks left till December 24th-and you know how time flies-so starting early saves lots of last-minute-I-am-so-ready-for-a-vacation-and-christmas-isnt-fun-this-way-stress *wink* . . .

So-how about you? Do you love Christmas Time as much as I do? Are you slowly but sure getting into the Holiday Mood already? Let me know in the Comments-I would love to hear!


Over the next Weeks I will share a couple of fun Holiday related Tutorials with you to get you right into the Christmas Mood-starting today with this cute illuminated Mixed Media Canvas.

    I totally love this. I loved watching he Halloween one and love this even more. I’ve never done mixed media before but this has really inspired me to give it a go. Especially as I have a canvas that has a small rip in it so I’ll be able to make use of it. Thank youReplyCancel
