For my design team project, I created a Christmas collage on an 8 x 10 canvas using The Creative Pointe's "Christmas Headings" SVG set. It combines some of my favorite things...glitter, vintage images, and lace...yum!
- Noel is cut from recycled cereal box cardboard and glittered with two colors of red for depth.
- I just LOVE vintage images (as if you haven't noticed)! A gentler, artistic, more beautiful time in advertising...not like today! I layered up an angel and a winter scene perfume ad along with a glittery felt snowflake and holly cut from Christmas scraps.
- The holly leaves were accented with Distress Inks and frosted with chunky crystal glitter. The berries have a layer of Glossy Accents and are accented with Fired Brick Distress and Platinum Stickles.
- The whole piece has spatterings of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and chunky crystal glitter for an overall icy effect. The edges especially have heavy layers of paint and glitter...so frosty! Pieces of lace and vintage buttons tied with baker's twine accent one corner.
