All is Calm Christmas Canvas

Hello again! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving, or have found some excellent Black Friday deals. I'm only shopping online this year, so I won't see you out there!

I love the snow.  I really love being in a quiet snowy place and I cannot think of a more peaceful setting.  This was the feeling that I was thinking of when I put this canvas together.

I used wood laser cuts from Unique Laser Designs on this canvas. The Swirly Christmas Tree was lightly brushed with gesso, leaving some of the wood bare.  I wanted to make the tree look like it was snow covered.  After the tree was dry I gave it some green ink. 
 The reindeer was given two separate coats of embossing powder.  The body, head, and ears were covered in a translucent powder and the antlers were covered in gold glitter embossing powder.  The reindeer is shiny and sparkly, but you're going to have to take my word for it.

If you're going to be brave and go shopping today, take a deep breath and remember "All is Calm."  May it bring you a moment of peace.  Good luck out there!

Shameless plug for my sponsor:
ULD also has a Black Friday sale.  Click here to check them out!

So beautiful. Love how you added the "snow" to the tree and the shine to the reindeer.
Please feel free to come and get as much of the snow in my yard as you would like.
