Even though my holiday "to do" list seems a mile long (like yours, I'm sure) I took a little time out to be creative.
We've had 3 different little canvasses hanging in our happy place (trailer) since we bought it.
This past season, we hung up a piece of art that was more personal, and some storage. So the three unremarkable canvases came home and I stuck them in my craft room until I felt inspired to do something with them.
That inspiration came a couple of nights ago, when I transformed one canvas into a holiday decor item.
I used some scraps that I had left over from Teresa Collins' Christmas line, glittery red Thickers and a Kaisercraft wood tree, which I painted and distressed. As well as some My Mind's Eye washi which is wrapped around the outer edges of the canvas.
It now sits nestled in with my Poinsettia.
I also wanted to mention that a while ago I had started adding watermarks to my pages, then a few months ago I changed my watermark. I was looking for something that was still very visible but didn't detract too much from the art. I know there is some controversy over the use of watermarks, but sometimes they are necessary. My scrappy friend Juliana inspired me with hers and I created something similar for me. I like that I can adjust the opacity per project. anyway, I just wanted to give her a shout out for inspiring me.
Have a great day!
