Hey there crafty peeps! Rita Barakat here today and we are doing a blog Winter blog hop with DCWV!  This week Dec 8-12 both blogs will be sharing fun winter projects featuring products from both companies! Check in each day on both blogs for chances to win lots of fabulous prizes! Today is my turn and I created this fun winter canvas!     November 2014 030 copy-002100 I used DCWV's Winter in the Woods stack, two fun and festive layers were a perfect backdrop for my snowman scene! November 2014 001100 I used my White Stampers Brush to draw  an outline for my snowman. November 2014 004100 I filled the snowman with Gesso, used Chalkboard Paint for his hat and Glass Bead Glitter Gel for accents! I used Gel Medium to attach the signs and accessories! November 2014 032100 Fun and easy! Now I am going to mount it onto a 12x12 canvas!
