CSI Winter Theme

I felt my dining room needed some different artwork, here is the piece I had in the room.  Too much spring-like, my room needed something more tranquil.

I painted two canvases wtih Benjamin Moore's Quiet Moments (had a small test jar).  Then cut out this tree (called Winter Tree) with my Silhouette machine.  The trunk is silver vinyl and to my surprise, I had no white vinyl, so I cut out several snowflakes from white cardstock.  I used Modge Podge to adhere the snowflakes.  Since the vinyl doesn't like to adhere to the canvas in places, I used Modge Podge over the top of the entire piece to keep the design down. 

Here they are together

Inexpensive artwork for the room and it was fun to give it a quick change.

I am sharing this on
