A better tomorrow

Week 2 of Christy's She Art Workshop had us making a scene with our girl. We could either paint or paper the sky & grass.  On my canvas, I used strips of green papers for the grass then mixed blue paint in with modeling paste to make the sky. Using a palette knife, I spread it like frosting so there's some really interesting texture but it's kind of hard to see in the photo.

After that, it was making the girl---can you see the raffia as her belt? Add a chipboard branch & some birds for the "scene" and some rubons and it's on its way! I love messing around with the different "textures" from punchinella, bubble wrap, and stamps. It's so cool how individually they don't make a huge impact, but all together they are so much fun!

I have another canvas started with paint as the sky & grass but that's as far as I've gotten.....  Even though I set my alarm at 3:30 every day to do some art, it doesn't always happen.  :(  Hopefully tomorrow!!


  1. She's awesome. I love it. Can't wait to see the next one. Im going to finish my 1st girl from the 2nd week tomorrow night. I'm excited about the new vids for week 3...loving what I see so far. You're rawkin the girls woman!!!!

  2. Great job! love the scene with the birds and all of the flowers.
