Let It Go!
Time for another canvas! If you've been following, you know the story of these canvases. If you are new to my blog, you can check out some previously posted canvases for the story: Yankee Doodle, Ode to Joy, and Happy.
I can show the face in this picture; she's my little grand-girl! She looks like Anna from Frozen with her blue eyes and red hair; she acts a little like her, too!
I started by mixing Sky re-inker with Create a Shade Pearl Paint (retired) and painted the pretreated canvas. (The canvas was already pre-gessoed.) While the paint was wet, I sprinkled with glitter down the diagonal of the canvas where the snowflakes would be.
I cut the snowflakes from the Artbooking cartridge. I adhered the white CS to the canvas.
I printed/cut the Frozen images, downloaded from KraftyNook, using glossy photo paper on the Cricut Explore. Ok, I'm going to digress a bit----- I really never thought I'd use this feature! However, I really like it. It's a real time saver when you are doing intricately pieced or small cuts. It's also great if you are in a time crunch and need something quickly!
My title is cut from Everyday Fonts-Best of Times. I finished it off with some blue gems left over from the wedding. I must have a thousand!
This canvas is heading over to these challenges who just happen to have some snowy themes this week!

It's such perfect crafting weather here: it's cold, snowy, icy, slick, etc-----also great online shopping weather. I ordered the promo item, along with some other goodies, from CTMH and I can't wait to see the paper! I think I have some items for the Seasonal Expressions 1 book, also! You can check all of this out at KatiesCorner!
Thanks for coming by today; stay warm and safe out there!
