SheArt Girl # 4

This a a pic of my SheArt Workshop Girl # 4 
This week Christy is showing us how to create layered dresses and hair pieces.  I did this piece in my art journal. 
I am having so much fun learning how to create these little beauties.  If you are interested in taking the workshop and learning how to create your own SheArt check out  Christy's blog. 
Well, off to my craft room to create girl # 5. 
Until next time...

SheArt Doll Canvas

I am taking an online workshop called The She Art Workshop.  The very talented Christy Tomlinson shares techniques on how to create wonderful canvas SheArt Girls!  I am having a blast!  Take a look at what I created in week 1!  This is my first canvas.  In week 1 Christy takes you step by step to create this piece.  She demonstrates different techniques and shows you how to use inks, paint, paper, oh my need I say more? 

Can you see all the beautiful layers on this piece.  I started by covering the canvas with a piece of
tissue pattern paper.  Here's my girl....I call her Child of God.  She's so pretty! 

This next one I call Angel.  Ok, I know I'm not too creative with my names.  I may change them but for now "it is what it is".  Christy says that a lot in her tutorials! 
I added lots of texture to this canvas with modeling paste.  I've never used this medium and I really like it.  You can use acrylic to color it and it spread it on with a brush, or whatever.  I rolled a stamp over the paste before it dried and the stamped image left an imprint in the paste!  Love it!
This is my last little girl.  I think she may be my favorite.   I didn't mean to, but I made her hair gray.  I may call her the Artsy GranNan. 
Well, I hope you enjoy my creations.  I would love to hear your comments.  Until next time.....

Time for Birthday Layout!

It took me....4 months to get this done it is! Noah's 5th Birthday Layout.  Look how proud he looks in the focus picture! Yep, we're all here to celebrate you, sweetness. 
I used CTMH Fanfare Paper pack and assorted CTMH stamps.  The basic design was from a workshop designed by Pam Thorn...thanks again, Pam!

Canvas Art

Do you like my little canvas piece?  It was so much fun to make.  I used gesso to prep my canvas and then used blue and green to create a background.  I cut triangles and circles from CTMH paper to make the banner and flowers.  I used sponges, rub-ons and various stamps to add interest and texture.  Doodled around the piece here and there and waaala!  It's art!
