I made a winter canvas (6 x 8) different techniques, particularly with stencils, paint, paste and foil. It was particularly fun to create shadows and to foil the deer and the edges of the canvas. The foil gives a wonderful metallic shine to the project. I used Dylusions acrylic paint and the lovely Country stencil. I also really like the Holes stencil used for the background. Christmas is coming so soon, and I still have a few gifts to make, but this is one of them.
This project is a step-by-step tutorial, and you can see all the steps and read more about it on Ranger's site.
