Snowman Canvas

I was super inspired by the lastest Friday Mashup to make a project related to the weather.

The background was painted with gesso then while it was wet, i picked up some spray mist and swirled it in. I added some stars and dots with stencils. The snowman is hand cut. I could have used dies but I wanted a more organic look. The circles are made from cardstock over coaster board then I airbrushed them. The hat is covered in big snow-like sprinkles.


I’m afraid I got a quote from Frozen wrong, it should read ‘good’ before the ‘time’ but oh well. It wouldn’t have fit anyway. I added some periods from the glitter alphabet, snowflakes, sequins and a few wood veneers painted with gesso. The letters, snowflakes and veneers were covered in Matte Medium and fine glitter.


I’m also entering this in the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #7. Tic Tac Toe. I used a Die (snowflakes), glitter and stars (both veneer and stencilled in the sky).

Enjoy, Rebecca
