Canvas & Paper Christmas Wall Decoration

Over the summer I came across some 12 X 12 Canvases at Big Lots for $5.00 each and picked up a couple.
Not sure what I would do with them at the time,but thought they might come in handy when the urge struck to try something different.


Using Rangers Alcohol Ink,blender solution and applicator,I colored my canvas to suit the colors of my kitchen.
I found some free primitive art stitching patterns here .

Printed out my template on standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper and proceeded to make a paper piecing pattern for my snowman and bird.

Embossed my snowflakes onto canvas using Versa Mark and brown embossing powder from Close to My Heart added rhinestones for embellishment.

Using a Black marker for my Title and details.

Snowflake Stamps are from Stamping Up Collection.Paper was applied using Mod Podge with some Mod Podge applied randomly sponged on for some shiny dimension.

I picked this pattern to fit into the Monday Challenge this week on the "Sisterhood of Scrap".
Also I really thought he was such a cute little guy ! :)

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world, hope you have a crafty day !!

What a beautiful project! I have an image that I'm trying to get onto canvas and was thinking about trying to draw it on and emboss over it. I haven't used embossing powder on canvas before and my first instinct is that it will be terribly difficult to just tap off. Any tips on embossing on this medium? Thanks!
