Easy Silhouette Art- Freezer Paper on a Canvas

Some good friends of ours had to say goodbye to their sweet dog a couple months ago. We really felt for them, knowing what it is like to lose a dog when it is way too young. For us, after the initial pain was gone, I wanted mementos and reminders of Callie in our home. I thought our friends may soon feel the same way. I decided to try using freezer paper on a canvas to create a silhouette of a dog. The freezer paper did not seal as well as it does on fabric but it still worked!

Check out my finished product...

I started by making a dog silhouette on my can download a copy here.

Then I traced it onto freezer paper, cut it out, and ironed it onto my canvas. Since the freezer paper was covering up the dog's silhouette, I painted all around it with a gray paint.

Once the paint dried, I pulled off the freezer paper and it was finished!

I am heading off in the morning for a girls weekend with my mom in Asheville! I am so extremely excited!! I can't wait to have some fun time with my wonderful mom! Hope you all have a great weekend!
