Giant Snowmen!

How do you build a giant snowman? Easy. It's all a matter of perspective. If you were a bug -- or a kid making a snow angel -- and looking up at a snowman, it would look very, very large! It's all a matter of perspective. 

Instead of starting with three stacked circles, we drew partial, overlapping circles up from a corner of a 12" x 18" sheet of paper. Then we added details, making sure that closer things (near the bottom) were larger and things in the distance (higher up) were smaller. 

We outlined our snowmen with black Sharpies, then again with Crayola markers, which we "painted" with water to bleed into a nice bluish snowy tint. We painted the rest of our details, then added a nice colorful background.
