Create-A-Critter on Canvas



"Hello....if you think you've seen me before, you have! 
I'm on page 62."  :-)




The first time I set my eyes on this hedgehog, I thought it was too cute to keep on a card. Somehow it seems like it belongs on a place where it can be more visible and can be better appreciated. Where anyone who walks pass it, can stop and tell it how adorable it is....

Like on a canvas hanging on the wall.



The truth is I am no artist. I've tried many times before but I. Just. Can't. Paint. That doesn't mean I wasn't going to try to set this hedgie free from paper.


Armed with my Cricut, my canvas, acrylic paints, freezer paper, and hot iron, I fought to put this hedgie on the wall. It wasn't without a struggle as I found out painfully that the freezer paper did not stick to my canvas like it does to fabric (t-shirts). Nevertheless, I think a battle was won. This hedgie is now sitting on my wall looking at me, as I am here looking back at it. :-)
