I've been crafting like a maniac to get my Graphic 45 Advent Calendar finished. The canvas measures 24 inches x 24 inchs! All of the paper I used was from their Christmas Past line.
The large piece of canvas was bought at QVC about two years ago. I'm so glad I waited to use it. I chalked up the canvas with reds, yellows, and browns. Then I painted it with Pearl Red Luminarte spray which is like Glimmer mist. Then I added 4 large Graphic papers next to each other in the center. I believe they are 11 inches each. Then I sprayed all the papers and canvas with Gold Glimmer Mist.
To make the background, I fussy cut 3 or 4 papers and applied all over the canvas. I also used a page of their large diecuts.
I also adhered some small pictures that were cut out on the boxes and then attached the numbers. The numbers themselves were also made with Graphic 45 paper too. I cut them all with my Expression.
Finally to finish it off I adheared two bows at the top, some gold beads around the edges, and a few flowers that I bought at Michaels that I sprayed with Santa Baby Glimmer Mist.
I am going to fill the boxes up with both candy and little notes of something we'll do that day, like make Christmas cookies, make Christmas ornaments, or visit Santa. That sort of thing.
