I love creating mixed media canvas with the little 4x4 canvases from Canvas Corp, perfect little space to get my creative juices flowing but not spend hours or a ton of supplies to make a cute little project. It is also a great way to try out a new technique, color palette, or idea on a small scale to see if it works!
I use the fun January inspiration from Creative Embellishments as my launching pad for this little piece, thinking of texture, color, and the mix of cold and warmth with a steampunk feel. I love the way the gears and snowflakes work together!!

I used various chipboard gears from 3/4", 1", and 1.5" and also the snowflakes from Creative Embellishments for this project.
I layered the project on the canvas with tons of added texture (snowtex) and them misted with reds and blues. I then cut out 3 Die~Namites "Frosty Snowflakes" and 1 "Heart Ribbon" on Canvas Corp kraft paper and used various Tattered Angels mists, paints, glimmer glams in gold, reds, and bronzes to add more texture and depth to them all.
