"Be Merry" Christmas Canvas from May Flaum

Today designer May Flaum brings us a charming 9x12 Christmas canvas with folk art appeal.  How sweet would this little tree be sitting on your mantel?  We are getting into the spirit of the season here at Jenni Bowlin Studio!

The background is a fun mix of inking including some stamping with the Harlequin Clear Stamp.  Then the tree itself is a mixture of patterned paper strips from our 2012 Vintage Christmas line along with a variety of JBS and vintage buttons plus some rhinestone stars and sparkley trim.  Polish it off with a December Banner Sticker and a tidy "Be Merry" Title.

So festive!  Thanks for the inspiration May!
