Reverse Canvas Winter Scene with Photos

Saturday Afternoon Class-Registration Closed. Friday Afternoon Class-Open. Create a sweet winter scene on the backside of an 8” x 10” wood-frame stretched canvas. With this project we’ll use a vintage paint-by-number image reproduced onto fabric, mid-century Kodak slide frames with black & white winter photos, a tiny bottle brush tree, cotton, and mica snow. Add your own tiny photos if you’d like and spell out a special holiday message or family name with customizable pennant bunting. The instructor will supply:

  • 8” x 10” canvas
  • Vintage Paint-by-Number winter image on cloth
  • Vintage Slide frames
  • Mini vintage photo images
  • Clear acetate
  • Vintage ledger paper
  • Bleached bottlebrush tree
  • Cotton
  • Mica dust
  • Alphabet Pennant sheet (17 spaces max width for message)

Students should bring to class:

Optional: I will supply tiny winter scene photos, but feel free to bring your favorite photos printed to paper as horizontal images sized to 1” high x 1.5” wide with added margins for gluing--black & white, sepia-tone, or color. You may also bring book pages or other ephemera for canvas sides and scalloped curtain, in addition to edge punches and miniatures for snow scene.
