I recently bought some white canvas blocks/boards at Jo Ann Stores or Hobby Lobby. I'm sure both must have them. I've been wanting to paint something on them. So, I painted the white canvas with Tim Holtz Distress Paint in broken china. Next, I die cut several tall pines and made a snowman with the largest punch circle being 5/8" and then used the SU owl punch for the other two body circles. I used a Copic for the eyes and teeth. Then cut out a tiny nose with scissors. The snow is a piece of white cardstock, sponged.
I thought these canvas blocks would be really cute for my little grandkids to set in their windows or wherever for Christmas.
Today, the mix83 challenge is Naturally Elements, to choose a color element from fire, water earth, or air. Mine is AIR=Blue, white, gray (I do have green in there, though..hope it is o.k.) I have gray on my snowman and, of course, you see the blue and white.My broken china is really blue and not the green it may look on here.
EDIT: I must edit this card. The reason my canvas looked green is because it is. When I typed my post, I was thinking I had used Tim Holtz broken china Distress Paints but, for some reason, last night it popped into my mind, I had covered the canvas with Viva Stamp Paint in lime green metallic. Duh! What was I thinking? So, I guess this belongs in water (aqua, turquoise, gray, silver), not air, for the Mix challenge. Well, it looks kind of turquoise. Maybe I should have just stayed out of the mix challenge this time. Ha

Darling, Benzi and your GKs will be thrilled with their own Christmas decoration. I like your "Picasso" take on perspective...some looking straight on and some looking from above(the snowman)...much like a child perceives the universe in their drawings with changed views.
