She had a song in her heart...

So with CHA in full swing this week.. I have another sample of work to share. This is a sweet little girl canvas that will be in the Art-C booth this upcoming CHA. This mixed media canvas board was used creating some of their stuff from their Summer 2010 CHA release... I am in love with it all. I am so happy that someone has created a specific Mixed Media brand... love it!

So here she is...

"She had a song in her heart for the world to hear"

I started the project out by sketching what scene I wanted with a pencil (note to self, make sure next time it is not a water color pencil) I had my sweet friend Courtney Walsh painting with me... that is always a plus. After I sketched out my simple scene, I started to add the background textures (you can see them here, stars and watercolor paper by Art-C). Using the ripped up pieces of water color paper with some mod modge... I created a fun textured background that I was able to paint on.

This sun was created with Art-C's air drying modeling clay. It was fun and easy to paint from there.

Her little crown was some left over clay that I had stamped into.

Her glorious locks are a combo of glitter, paint, pastel, Sakura pens... repeat.repeat.repeat... till I found the right combo.

Her sweet little heart was created with parts from one of the Art-C ATC kits.

And this fun rolling hills of grass, made with wire, beads and one of the ephemera kits. (PS she also likes to paint the roses red!)

Her dress is layers of Art-C products blended together with fabrics from my stash. The flowers and embellishments are from one of the ATC and Ephemera packs.

So here she is in all her glory... I am so happy with the way she came out.. she looks so happy... matter of fact, I know she is happy :)

So she is off to CHA... if you are attending... make sure to stop by their booth (#2338) and say hello! My sweet friend Sally Lynn MacDonald will be teaching some classes as well as demonstration and doing make and takes in their booth.

Thanks for peeking!
