Northern Lights

This one is for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge this week, which is "the great outdoors." This is a set of northern lights wall hangings I made for my house. The ironic thing...I have yet to see a really good display of the northern lights up here in Alaska. So far all I have seen is some mild greens, none of the fun colors. Maybe someday. These were created using 4"x12" canvases that I streched some northern lights fabric over. I used a home dec stapler to attach the fabric on. I then used the Camp Out cartridge to cut out the moose and wolf. I used the cut to length feature to make sure they fit the width of the canvas. I adhered them onto the fabric and then hung them in the arched pattern. I think I want to make some more and make it look even more like it is moving, but it will have to wait because I am making a set of these for a friend of mine who just moved from Alaska down to Georgia. I think she will appreciate them since she won't be able to see them anymore.
