winter snowman canvas art

Step 1
Click here to download and print template. Cut out shapes. 
Step 2
Pour out a generous amount of Desert Sky paint onto a paper plate (or palette paper). Paint the entire canvas Desert Sky. Let dry. 
Step 3
Paint blue around the edges, toward the center, blending with the Desert Sky paint. Let dry. 
Step 4
Trace and cut out the snowman shape from the white sticky-back foam. Adhere to the canvas, lining up the bottom of the snowman with the bottom of the canvas. 
Step 5
Trace and cut out the scarf from red sticky-back foam and adhere it to the snowman's neck. 
Step 6
Trace and cut out the carrot nose from orange sticky-back foam and adhere it to the snowman's head, about a third of the way down from the top of his head. 
Step 7
Paint stripes onto the scarf using blue paint. Let dry. 
Step 8
Using the eraser end of the pencil, dip it into black paint and create a smile under the carrot nose. Dip the eraser into the paint, then press onto the face and lift off. Let dry. 
Step 9
Clean off the eraser and repeat this technique to make snowflakes, by dipping it into white paint, then pressing it onto the canvas and lifting off. Let dry.
