Xyron is sharing #30DAYSOFHOLIDAYS! You need to check out the XYRON FACEBOOK PAGE for great projects and shares from the whole team!! Make sure you check out the XYRON website too! I'm sharing this very merry canvas with you today! I'm going to go step by step also, so you can create one of your own if you want!
I chose a 6"X6" canvas. I painted it white for some added texture.
I then cut a 5.5" X 5.5" square. I adhered it to the canvas. I added another layer of red swiss dot cardstock and rounded the corners. I adhered that to the canvas as shown.
The next step for this canvas is adding a doily. Place the doily in the center of the cnavas and adhere. You can mist it or ink it before hand if you want, but it looks really fresh and wintery if you just leave it as is.
I wanted to add something simple, but I wanted it to have a little oomph, so I chose a pattern to compliment the canvas. I placed a circle within the doily. The heart is a perfect touch to the canvas, adding a layer and a great Christmas-y feel.
The next step? Adding the sentiment. I kept it simple, Christmas is a time for joy, so it was pretty easy to choose joy. You can trace these letters, use large alpha stickers or use your cutting machine. I am probably the only scrapper on Earth without one, so I did mine the archaic, old fashioned way and traced and cut out my letters. I also decided for an extra touch that they needed some twine...as in a twine outline. I used some Xyron TC Clear Adhesive. Add an outline of clear adhesive to the letters and lay down twine on top of it. Let dry.
I used foam dots to add some pop.
Adhere to the front of your canvas, using the heart as a guide for lining it up.
I added a heart to either side of the JOY.
After you add a heart to each side, you can add some fun little touches here and there..like sequins, snowflakes and tiny hearts. I finished my canvas off with some drips of mist.
Here's the finished canvas, ready to hang up on the wall or maybe give as a hostess gift!
Here's a close up of the joy so you can see...some of the details up close.
❤ Stay tuned to Xyron for the next 30 days!! You won't want to miss a day! ❤
