So, once again, I started with Santa and specifically, this classic Victorian Santa from the Christmas book Chatterbox 1920 that I found at Graphics Fairy.
I then needed to find vintage christmas sheet music for my background and selected Santa Claus So Jolly. Another great Graphics Fairy download...
I then spread Aleenes Clear Tacky Glue on matting and over the Santa Claus and sprinkled Martha Stewart's Crystal Coarse Glitter over the tacky areas. In retrospect, I should have used spray adhesive because the picture buckled a bit from the glue.
I had recently purchased a frame at HomeGoods that needed just a little gold to spruce it up. Rub'N Buff to the rescue once again. Victorian Santa Claus sits proudly on my Chinese Red Victorian front hall chest greeting all during the holiday season.
Let me know what you think....
