I couldn't help but try and use a line from "Frozen" at some point on my blog this winter. So here it is.
When I asked the kids this, their answer was YES! But guess who did all the work? Momma. They helped pack in the snow a bit and put some of the pieces on. And Charlotte helped me find sticks for arms, and while we were doing so, noticed the Holly bush. So we picked a piece (which somehow ended up in the snowman's armpit) and it also became our snowpersons' name: Holly! :)
This is yet ANOTHER page for the Sketchathon going on at My Scraps & More!
I started by washing over the background with some gesso and a dry brush to tone down the pattern a bit. Then I machine stitched a circle with white thread in the upper right corner to draw more attention to the photo up there. A trick I used on a previous page that I will probably use again and again, is to use a white pen and draw in some lines along the white threads to make the circle stand out more.
I splattered some blue paint on the background, too. Then I just placed my photos, and built up the one in the top right a bit more with some papers and embellies. For my title, I just decided to use the words right on the die cut...it was perfect!
Finally, I bit of layering with some labels, brads, chipboard, and pre-stitched pieces. Working with a whole collection makes it so easy to put things together!
Would love to see you join in at the Sketchathon! Check it out HERE:
