Anything Goes @ DOC

Hi everyone, it's been a while but I've finally managed to make something for
our last theme for 2015 is......
'Anything Goes'
and you have until 11th January to join us!
As it was an open theme I decided to try something totally different for me, something I've never done before...A Mixed Media canvas and I'm quite pleased with the end result! I gave it a Christmas/winter feel with blue and white colours and plenty of snowflakes.

I hope these pictures capture the texture I gave my canvas.
Corrugated card
 bubble wrap
patterned embossing folder
Blue and white acrylic paint
SU twine
berries, small snowflakes, metal sheeting and pearls from stash
Magnolia doohickeys - wing, snowflake, poinsettia flower
Tim Holtz Ideaology chitchat stickers
We have three awesome prizes from our dearest Karina for you to win this time....
1st prize - three surprise stamps
2nd prize - two surprise stamps
3rd prize - one surprise stamp
This will probably be my last post this year, so I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful new year and I will be back in 2016 with more projects, cards and other makes.
Thank you to everyone who visits my blog (sorry I haven't had time to visit back, maybe I will have a little time to blog this Christmas break and leave some love on your blogs!)
Christmassy Hugs,
