Christmas Tree Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Everyone!

Christmas is almost here! In anticipation I created this Christmas Tree Mixed Media Canvas. I just love everything about the Christmas season and this canvas put me in the holiday spirit!

I did a video tutorial that goes over all the steps and I will try and describe what I did in the instructions below (but the video might be easier to follow along with all the steps, lol).

  • Canvas:
  • Dina Wakley Stencil:
  • Liquitex Glass beads:
  • Artists Loft Paint:
  • Blue Mica Powder:
  • Deep Water Mica Powder:
  • Finnabair silver wax:
  • Finnabair bronze wax:
  • Laser cut snowflakes (Similar):
  • Gel Sticks:
  • Gel Pen:


Start with an 11×14 canvas and cover it with old music. This is a great way to break up the background and start a canvas.

Now it is time to add color and texture. I used the Dina Wakley stencil and added glass beads to the bottom. Then I painted the sky with a few different blues and the snow with white. Don’t forget to paint the edges. for sparkle I added Mica powders and spread them out with water and let it drip to the bottom. Let this all dry before going on to the next step.

Now it is time to prep the tress. Find 3 different Christmas papers that will work for trees and cut them into triangles.

Then I used a gel stick to add color to the edges and smeared it in then I added a white line on top with a gel pen. This added dimension to the trees.

For the snowflakes I painted the wood cut out with liquid watercolors and then added some Finnabair wax on top. For the tree trunk I painted them with a Finnabair wax.

I glued it all on the canvas with hot glue then I added white splashes with watered down white acrylic paint.  Seal it all with a spray sealer when you are done then hang it up and you decor is now complete!
