Christmas canvas for a friend... D

I just love my mixed media projects and as you can probably see I always err on the side of dramatic so to create this really stretched me.  My mate is into shabby chic so gave it a go.  I am still unsure of it but here it is.

Materials used are as follows

Modelling paste
blue, cream and pink paints
gold, silver and copper rub n buff
snowflake charms
holly leaves and berries from my stash
chipboard for the tree
lots of lace on my chipboard tree
lots of rose quartz, lemon quartz and amethyst
a glass angel from my stash and a pair of wings from a diamante brooch
embossing powder and glitter (leaves, berries and snowflakes)
pearl trim
glittered snowflakes and stars from a pound shop
crystals for the tree trunk

I think that's all I used lol

Hope you like it

Hugz always
