On the Second Day of Christmas my true love gave to me a set of mini canvas's to play with!

I love to make new ornaments for my Christmas tree every year and these canvas's are so small and cute I thought they'd work great as ornaments! 

The collage sets I used is the
Victorian Vintage Christmas Angels
&
the Shabby Vintage Victorian Christmas Tag


I started with gesso on the canvas's...once dried I added mod podge.
On top of the mod podge I layed the angel tags upside down, rubbing them into the mod podge with my fingers.
When they were set I used a wet wipe and started wiping the paper off leaving the image on the canvas.
(If you are using an image with writing on it you may want to flip it so it is right side when you are done...I didn't do that so the writing on the little blue images book was backward but since I wanted the Merry Christmas text box there it worked out fine for me)

I used broken china & scattered straw distress stains on the edges of the canvas's.


There is goldenrod glitter on the yellow canvas and dreams glitter on the blue.
(glitters are from Art Glitter)


Below you can see the roses and ribbon that I added to the tops.


The gold ribbon was wrapped around the whole canvas & tied on the bottom 
and the silver ribbon was just added to the top.


Now I just have to wait for Christmas to come around so I can hang these on my tree!

I hope you will join us in this challenge!
Think about how much easier Christmas will be if we could get some of the work done now!
I don't know about you but I'm always in a last minute rush before Christmas!
