Do you wanna build a Snowman?

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:
