Christmas Canvas

I saw a small canvas in a store decorated for Christmas.
I knew I had one at home so this is what I came up with.

 I was pleased with this but every time I looked at it I knew something was off....
So take a look at the second one and you will see one change that made it all better.

That's right the blingy layer behind Santa.

Here is the process of making Gourdo.
I love gourds each one is unique.
The process of getting to the dried gourd can take almost a year.
The most tedious is cleaning the mouldy skin off and getting to the "wood".
Once that it is done the crafting begins.

 I use the stem from the gourd to make the nose.
I loved making this centre piece for a special lady. I also loive paper crafting so putting the two things together was so much fun.
