Vintage Winter Wonderland Canvas-Guest Designer For Frilly and Funkie

Welcome friends and visitors! I'm so honored to be crafting along side the talented Design Team at Frilly and Funkie as their Guest Designer after winning the 'Bountiful Harvest' challenge in November. Today I am sharing a canvas for the current challenge theme 'Winter Hues''  chosen by the talented Suzz.

Winter time brings such a beautiful mix of colors. This challenge requires you use any or all of the following colors:blue, white, silver, gray in your vintage or shabby chic project.


I started by adhering Tissue Wrap on my 3 1/2 x 5 canvas using Multi Matte Medium and wrinkling it up a bit. When dry, I trimmed the excess tissue and painted the surface with various Distress paints in blues and Picket Fence. While still wet, I added a sheet of Saran Wrap (plastic food wrap) and wrinkled that up. I set it aside to dry overnight. The photo below shows what it looked like after removing the plastic wrap.


I sprayed with Picket Fence Distress spray  and Perfect Pearl mist and wiped it back, resulting in this toned down shimmery surface.


I stamped some trees from the Woodland Scribble set in the background using Jet Black Archival ink, some with Picket Fence ink and some embossed with Emerald Creek Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder.  I stamped and embossed the cabin from Holiday Drawings on Plain Tissue Wrap, using Versamark ink and Watering Can and Soft Fallen Snow embossing powders, tore it out and adhered it to the surface with Multi Matte medium. 




Splattering on Picket Fence paint and adding Remnant Rubs add to the snowy atmosphere.


 

You can see in the photo below and on the finished canvas that blending some paints around the tissue edges blends this into the background. I also highlighted the windows with Fossilized Amber Distress ink and my water pen.


Distress Crazing medium was added and allowed to dry and Distress Crayon rubbed into the cracks around the edges and randomly over the canvas. I mixed crushed glass glitter with Multi Matte medium and wiped it on with my finger to finish it off. You might notice the tree inked in Picket Fence, but not heat embossed disappeared when I added the crazing! Oops!



The crazing looks great around the edges to give this a real aged look.


I took a few photos outdoors when the sun finally came out.



Most of the products I used can be found at The Funkie Junkie Boutique:



Additional products used:
Canvas, Saran Wrap, Emerald Creek Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder, Stampendous Silver Crushed Glass Glitter, Tim Holtz Christmastime Remnant Rubs

I am sharing with the following challenges:
Thank you for taking your time to visit my blog today, and I hope I have inspired you in the tiniest way to join the 'Winter Hues' challenge at Frilly and Funkie!
Hugs and Blessings!
Sara Emily

  2. Lovely creation! Thank you for all of the great step-by-step directions. Did you leave the plastic wrap on the canvas, or was it there just to add dimension to the paint?

    1. Dodie, thank you for your question! That's a very good question and I've changed my text to clarify. I removed the plastic wrap after the paint dried to leave behind the pattern. I'm so happy you like my canvas! Hugs!

  12. Wow Sara, you have knocked my socks off with this one! I want to shrink down and live inside this magical winter wonderland you have created!!

    I can imagine the cool air as I step outside the cabin door, I can see my breath, but it's not overly cold. The night sky goes on forever, it's filled with twinkling of a billion stars, and a big moon smiles at me as it lights up the surface of the glittering snow! I can hear the crunch of the snow as I walk towards the deer that have gathered at the edge of the property. I slowly lift my camera and take a few shots, the lightly falling snow landing on their fur and creating a saddle of white. The deer watch me for a few minutes, then turn and head off to the woods. I snap a few pics of the fields of white, then I head back to cabin where the fireplace is burning and a hot chocolate awaits. Another wonderful day in a perfect world.

    OK, how I am supposed to go back to reality after that!!!!!!!!! You rock girlfriend, have a great weekend, hugs :)

  26. This is what the cabin looked like after the last snow here but the snow went all the way to the roof. Haha. Beautiful and serene landscape you have designed. The tissue paper technique is a fun one and one that I need to do again. Thanks for the inspiration! I so enjoy what the mists have down for your background. Lovely and gorgeous dearie! Hugz to you muffin! ~Punkin
