Christmas Wall Art Part 2

This was the 2nd piece I made. While looking through the Cricut image library for free images, these carolers caught my eye and I knew I wanted to make a cute scene with them.

The background is again acrylic paint and the same snowflake turned stencil. I like this technique and kept many of the negatives of the die-cuts I used for my Christmas gifts to use as future stencils.

I was disappointed by how much the paper curled while creating these pieces. I’ve considered buying artist’s stretched canvas for creating stuff like this, but I never felt worthy of even such a relatively minor expense (Michaels often has a very good deal on them). With as wonderful as these turned out, I feel that I’m ready to upgrade my materials a bit.
