I decorated the front of a canvas for a DecoArt project and thought it might be nice to have a reversible canvas so I cold alternate which side was showing.
Because i love the calico Craft Parts in their natural wood form, I decided to try and make something that complimented that.
I stained the raw pine wood of the frame with some Decoart raw umber acrylic paint watered down so it blended in better with the Craft Parts. Then I covered the back of my canvas with thin wood veneer by cutting sections out of a sheet (you can get these sheets in hobby shops and on line). I also stained that with a watery wash of 'raw umber' and then a little touch of 'quinacridone gold' for a touch of warmth.
I added some Decoart 'snow-tex' in and around it as well as using it to put snow on my trees.
after then gluing my trees into place, in a 3D manner, I finished it all off with a sprinkling of Glamour dust glitter and a piece of bark from my friend's (Carol F) tree.
Although the photos don't show it, this snowy scene twinkles like frost in the light. I am actually quite pleased with it. it was so simple, as the craft parts do the work, but so effective.
