Fun with Canvas!

Edited to add: I added a piece cotton lace across the dress because it needed something. I also added a smile. Like it much better.
Sorry I haven't posted in FOREVER! I have been busy with school, kids, hockey, and a couple of awesome online workshops. Fun ones! I took Melody Ross' Soul Restoration Workshop first. I'll post about that later. Now I'm taking Christy Tomlinson's She Art Workshop. Love it! She teaches how to make these She Art girl canvases, mixed media darlings. She rocks!

Here is my first canvas. So much fun to just keep throwing stuff on the canvas. There's a ton of texture on this canvas. There are close ups below this one. I made this for a friend who is dealing with cancer. I hope she likes it. I think the proportions are a little off. He body is awfully big ;) I love it though!

This was so much fun to make! Of course my dear sweet husband didn't get it. He figured I wasn't done because she doesn't have a face. Gotta love him.
I stamped these flowers with ink, but they weren't showing up very well, so I painted them with paint. I LOVE paint!
Thank you for looking. It's always great to see that I've had visitors!
Have a blessed day!
