she wore her heart on her sleeve


Good morning! Today is Friday and so another challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is digital, so just add your digis to your project.

Well, you may know I am not very good with the digis, but I could still play along as I added some digital words. I printed my she art phrase out on my printer, so that counts as digital ...huh?

So, I have created a mixed media she art canvas.


I have used a Winsor & Newton artist canvas board as my base. Love these as they are sooooo solid! Then I've added papers, stamps, inks, sprays, rub-ons, texture paste etc to add depth.

My bird is actually a Tim Holtz stamp which I coloured with Faber-Castell Gelatos and then added some extra definition with my pen.


For my clouds, can you see the backing piece? I used an insert from a My Mind's Eye: Lost & Found set of pearls which I had used up. I die cut the Magnolia Cloud die from a piece of scrap and the used the off cut to add extra dimension and then outline the clouds. I just knew I had to fit that cute bumble bee rub-on on there.


I used rub-ons and my Faber-Castell Pitt Pens to create the flower. I added dimension with a layered paper flower.


All across the bottom of my canvas, I have used pink rose rub-ons. Just by chance I came across them in my stash and they worked really well for the colours I had used for my girl.


Onto my girl. Loving her BIG hair! I drew her and coloured her with gelatos and Pitt pens, then added some rub-ons.


More texture.


Have you spotted the hearts on her sleeves?

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
