Its a lovely HOT Sunday here in Perth. It's meant to get to 40 plus degrees so I'm trying to keep cool in the air con.
I better mention about my blog candy giveaway here!!.... It closes on the 15th Feb so please become a follower of mine and comment on this post to be in the running.
I want to share a canvas I made for my sisters baby girl soon to be born in May using the Kaiser Sugar Pop collection which my local scrap store, Made With Memories gave me to work with for my DT pack. I have seen soooo many lovely projects using this range over the past week.... I wanted to do something a little bit different.
Yes, it's bright and very girly and not normally a 'me' kind of range but I knew it would be perfect for a little girls nursery and I wanted to make a "She Art" type of canvas.... I will call it my "Owl Art".
This project was awesome to create and it all came together so easy. I have used some of the super duper talented Christy Tomlinson techniques to pull this all together and added a few elements of me too :) . When I watch Christy's You Tube tutorials she creates soooo many different layers of colours and textures. Christy is just amazing at what she does and blows my mind with her artistic genius!!
I have used her She Art mask with texture paste and bright pink paint mixed with Jo Sonjas glitter gel for a bit of sparkle. I have also used my fave Crafters Workshop template which I have offset the pattern and used two different colour blue paint for this. And the teal eyes and pink wings of the Owl are Heidi Swapps Colorshine. Then to finish everything off I used my trusty Sharpie marker for the doodling. I wish I was a bit more adventurous with my doodling but I didn't want to go overboard.
So here it is.... my "Owl Art"
