Hello and welcome! I'm Vivian Lake and I would like to share with you my mixed media canvas using Lindy's Stamp gang limited edition January set of winter colors and many of the awesome embellishments found in the Winter Adventures kits.

This project is ALL about texture and color. I am a huge fan of Gabrielle Pollacco's work and this canvas is definitely inspired by her blog and videos. My media is nearly all sprays and textured paste. Soon, I hope to incorporate more types of mediums into my creativity.

The beginning:

I created the design using much of the embellishment and main Winter Adventures kit.

I added a few extra elements such as buttons, lace and cheesecloth.
I did not end up using the large lace flower.

Shown here is everything covered in gesso, both individually and together.

Here it is before I added bling.

If you are making this kind of canvas, it really doesn't matter what color everything
starts out as if you are covering it all in gesso and spray inks.

I did end up adding eyes to the wooden snowman.
