So lucky to have 2 pieces in this issue!
I love to make "backwards canvases". Like a thinner shadowbox I think. I always put several layers of the focal image inside with foam dots.
I drew the house and tree, copied it and cut it out to layer it.
In this backwards canvas, I added actual twigs from outside of my house to make the star. I wrapped the points with rope and added some gauze and flowers.
