My first ever She Art!!!

I'm so excited to share my first ever She Art with you. I have been dying to have a go at mixed media on canvas and did a set of four small, framed canvases for a girlfriend (heh SJ!) for Christmas. They really pushed me outside my comfort zone and I really didn't have the vaguest idea of what I was doing but I was thrilled with the end result (as was my girlfriend!!!). They gave me the courage to have a go at the latest (?) She Art craze.


She is only on a small canvas (5x7") but that's what I had on hand. Plus I figured my girlfriend (who's birthday was last week) may not have a lot of space to display Faith (they've been doing some renovating and, living interstate, I haven't seen what's happened to her scrap space). I had been concerned that using such a small canvas I would struggle to fit all my ideas in; and I did add some things I later scraped off because it had become too 'busy'.

I love "Faith". I'm finding it hard to part with her LOL! Conveniently my girlfriend is away with her family for the school holidays so I can have Faith on display in my scrap room for a little while yet. Once I get a few other projects out of the way you can be sure I'll be having a go at creating some more She Art canvases, although I am thinking of something along the lines of "A Boy & His Dog Art"!!

Oh and in case you need another view of some of the texture, this next photo may help out.

LOL I don't know if this additional photo really helps that much but I've noticed for a long time, artists and crafters of all kinds show different angles of their projects so I figured I'd give it a go. What do you think LOL?!?!!!

Anyways, as much as I'd love to say I'm off to get my scrap on, the reality is I'm off to do the washing, walk Bear, and maybe then get my scrap on! I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. Cheers!!!   :)
