She Art Collage on Canvas

I'm so inspired by the She Art that Christy Tomlinson creates.
Here's my attempt.
The background starts with ripped tissue paper.  I love the texture and dimension it gives.
They you do a variety of spray inks on top, then I sprayed using some stencils.  I even did some dabbing around with some bubble wrap before and after I added my hand cut houses and girl.
 I roughly drew the outline of the girl on one piece of designer paper, then I cut pieces of laces and trims and other colors of paper and added it to her.  Hot glue works the best for me on adding the trims and rosette.
 The houses are really fun to make!  I just mixed matched some of the designer papers and used a glue stick to put them together.  Once I glued them onto the canvas using matte medium, I used a black pitt pen to outline them.
 The die cuts are from my stash and were added with hot glue.
I printed the sentiment out on my computer, used matte medium to adhere to the canvas, then outlined with my black pitt pen.

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
