My mom has just had an extensive operation and is hanging out in the Jubilee in Victoria for a week or so. I wanted to make her a "She Art" of when she was young. She had long braids and always wore such fashionable clothing. I hope she likes it. I love how the colours are somewhat muted and how the feeling of earthy-ness comes out. Thanks for swinging by.

Another canvas done with mixed media...acrylic paints, stamping, rub-ons, masks...just to name a few. The whole process is very cool. Once you start you literally can't stop. One more rub-on... one more colour...oiy vay!!! The mod podge I had was actually the glossy type but I think I will buy some matte as it is quite shiney and difficult to photograph. It doesn't look bad just glossy.

Yes I know. I've been absent. I won a class on-line working with mixed media and canvas and finally got around to creating my first piece. The course is called "She Art" and the brains behind it is Christy Tomlinson http://www.christytomlinson.typepad.com/ . Check it out. You may want to try something different but I will tell you, it is addicting. I know I will be making many more and plan to make some for gifts.
