New Snowman Mixed Media

So I've kind of taken this mixed media thing and ran with it. These are my latest creations. I'm not done with them yet. There are a couple of things I'm going to add yet. I want your honest opinions on them. Yeah, nay, whatever!

I started with 3 8x8 canvas boards. I put down a layer of music sheet paper with mod podge. I painted the background with acrylics, did some stamping, and a little glimmer mist. Then I painted the snowmen and finished them off with a little marker and more stamping. I put down a protective layer of mod podge after each step.

I realize my photos aren't the best, but I just took some quick ones for you all to critique.

Each snowman has a name and I'm planning on adding the name to the picture. I don't have a fancy cursive handwriting, so I don't want to do it by hand. I was thinking about cutting the letters out with my cricut and sticking them on. What do you think?

This is Jack:


And Frosty

Thanks for your input!
