She Art Canvas

While at CHA this year, my sister-in-law and I fell in love with Christy Tomlinson’s new “She Art” line with Pink Paislee. Christy demo’d her amazing canvas-making skills one afternoon, and we sat enthralled. She’s a terrific teacher and the new line she developed makes creating mixed media canvases far less intimidating. I really love the vivid colors in all her papers as well.

We placed an order for the whole line and will be re-selling soon. After procrastinating for the last month, I finally got around to making my first canvas tonight… and how fun it was! This girl is on a 6″ x 12″ canvas, and the words say “She decided to leap.”

Since my “word of the year” is Brave, I thought this phrase was fitting. I see many more of these canvases in my near future!

Supplies: Christy Tomlinson She Art line for Pink Paislee (papers, rub-ons, stencil, embellishments), acrylic paint, Mod Podge, punchinella, Light Modeling Paste, Pilot black gel pen, Faber Castell India Ink brush pens, Crafter’s workshop stencils, Dylusions stencil.

    Hi Renee,

    I’m using the Pilot “replacement” for the permawriter called the G2. I picked up retractable ones at the pharmacy in both fine & medium point. They work great…just like the ones in Christy Tomlinson’s She Art videos. They don’t dry right away so you can “erase” and re-do if necessary. And when they dry, they seem to do well and not smudge at all. 🙂
