Christmas Eve

Let me tell you all I am absolutely delighted and honoured to be
a guest designer today at  A Vintage Journey- such a talented design

For the current theme I have prepared a canvas
named ,,Christmas Eve''. I was inspired by my memories of this very special night when the whole family went to church about midnight to attend the unique Mass. It is one of the most beautiful Polish custom.

I have used a 29,5 cm x 9,5 cm white canvas where I glued the images of Lavinia
stamps cut out from a magazine.
I loved these houses but unfortunately didn't have any of the stamps.
Next step was covering all with clear gesso.

Next lots of colours were added to the canvas: Gelatos, acrylic paints, some inks
and mists.

I have also heat embossed star stamps and did some stamping with white
gesso. The snow was made with very heavy coarse structure paste.

The star is made of a birch-tree and I emphasized its texture by using heat embossing and some glitter.
