A Merry Christmas Canvas

Hello and happy Hump day! Sabrina Jackson here, with my very first post for ULD. 
I am honored to have been asked to join the team and share some of my creations with you all!  

For my first post I have a fun 8"x 8" canvas I made using the amazing "Merry Christmas", "Snowflakes"and the "Reindeer". 

I started out tearing my Vintage music sheets up and decoupaging them unto the frame of the canvas. After that was all dried up I toned everything down with some white Gesso. 
Since I used the blue Designer paper on the very back of the canvas I wanted to bring some blue in and I used the Folk Art Ice Blue and dabbed it over the Gesso. 

After the paint was dry I added the Poinsettias, leaves and silver picks on the opposite corners for more interest. The word "Merry Christmas" was dry brushed with Gesso and then I added some silver German Glass glitter.

The Reindeer was painted with white Gesso and all glittered up with Crystal glitter and adhered to the right bottom corner. He looked a tad bit plain, so I made a wreath out of tinsel trim and added a jingle bell. 
On the bottom ledge there I adhered three bottle brush trees and added the Buffalo snow. To add some more snowflakes besides the ones that are on the Designer paper, I added some glitter to the snowflakes and glued them randomly to the background and voila the Christmas canvas was done!

What do you think of my canvas?
