She Art Canvas

So today I plucked up the courage to finally do a She Art girl freehand. For my other 2 canvases I'd used the She Art die cut. I ran out of the big canvases so this one is just a 7x5.


To start with I ripped pages from a papermania portobello pad and modpodged them onto the canvas, I then sprayed some blue and red Dylusions ink over them. Then came the messy bit, various paint, gesso and stencils, stamps, distress stain etc. I then cut the girls face, arms and legs from a book and glued them onto the canvas. Next came the clothes which I cut from the same portobello road pad. I then painted her skin and hair with acrylic paints. More texture with paints, stamps etc followed and then the words. Finally I doodled over the canvas. It came out a bit darker than I wanted it to but hey another lesson learned!!



  1. Wow Shary! So glad you took the plunge here as this is just amazing! The amount of texture is just fabulous and the colours just beautiful. Well done!
