I have used the wrong side of a 14''x7'' stretched canvas. I added thick board dividers to make compartments.
I painted the whole thing in a soft suede brown to get a vintage feel..... combined with traditional greens golds and reds. The main image of the Madonna and child is a recycled Christmas card that i cut down, stamped and embossed the edges.
I used a small ornament 'faith'.... and various Christmassy bits and bobs........ that i embossed in a mixture of gold and copper embossing powers to keep to the overall colour theme.
I love natural elements at this time of year, so i have included tiny pine cones and some greenery....a miniature pale green candle on a tiny cut log..... an Angel offering a gift..... a harp type instrument..... i used a pretty sheer decorated ribbon to edge the entire canvas...as it allows the paint colour to show through.... i even used the dreaded glitter.
Sorry about the picture overload but there is so much to see.... and this took me most of the day!
I know you're all wondering ...'WHY did the dragon do this..... well my two little girls are so full of 'Mary and Jesus' i thought they might like it..... and they do...so if they're happy...i'm happy!
I shall enter the following challenges......
