If you have a little girl in your house, there is almost no way on this planet you haven't at least heard of Frozen. If you have a little girl in your house that has seen Frozen, chances are you have seen it...once or twice or 7 million times. I mean, am I right?
This month for the Silhouette Challenge, the theme was "My Favorite Things." I couldn't, for the life of me narrow it down...I mean my favorite things change daily. Today, I would be a huge fan of coffee and spray paint. Yesterday it was coffee and polymer clay. Tomorrow it will probably be coffee and washi tape. I see a theme here. I should have gone with coffee...
Anyway, while I was cleaning out some craft supplies, Lucy saw this canvas in a box. The first thing out of her mouth was "mommy, this looks like it should be in Elsa's castle!" I gave it one glance and knew it needed to be Frozen related and I knew then that the "favorite things" challenge wouldn't be about my favorite thing, it would actually be about one of my favorite person's favorite things.
I had originally made it as a trial canvas I had made back when I was participating in the One Crafty Challenge hosted by One Artsy Mama. It was for the glitter round, if you can't tell, and if you know anything about me, you would know that I hate glitter. So this round of the challenge was a huge challenge for me, going against everything I believe in (that glitter shouldn't exist). To make this one, I used a flat blue paint first and then spray painted over it with a blue glitter spray paint. Before the spray paint was dry, I sprinkled a little extra glitter on it, just for glitters sake. There was no fancy method or style, it was just a little canvas with a bunch of glitter thrown at it, literally.
This version would have gotten me no where in the craft challenge, so it was a good thing I scrapped it and went with something else. I was up against some very talented ladies. It wasn't until after the THIRD attempt to create something awesome that I got it right and won the glitter round with this:
And winning the challenge meant that I won a box full of glitter. Yep. I now own more glitter than I ever thought was possible.
But back to this Frozen project. After I cut out a super simple "Let it Go" quote out of vinyl on my Silhouette for this canvas, I showed Lucy. She exclaimed "MOMMY IT'S PERFECT!" and gave me the biggest hug and told me I was the best, so really, I won again. With glitter. Go figure.
