More She-Art...this time a 'scene'

Happy Monday!! I hope all you mom's out there had a wonderful day yesterday. Mine was very low key...a homeade breakfast, an afternoon bike ride and lots of reading and relaxing inbetween. And now...Monday again! I think Mother's Day should be a 3-day weekend.

I'm sharing another She-Art girl today. For this one, I closely followed Christy's video where she showed how to make a scene with your She-Art girl. I started with some blue paper for the sky, green toned papers for the grass and then covered most of the paper with paint. I built up the scene from there.


I think her neck is definitely better than the other She-Art girl I shared. And I tried the pleated/layered skirt technique.


I used paint for my flowers and used quite a few rub-ons on this canvas. I love my white rub-ons, I just wish I wasn't running low. I will be on the look out for more white rub-ons for sure.



I made this for a friend of mine who is an animal lover. I love the quote, thanks to my bloggy friend Joni! She helped me come up with a saying that fit for her. And as I type this, I have two more canvases coming to me via fed-ex and some other paint and supplies. I can't wait to make another Girl!!

Thanks for stopping by today, friends. Have a great Monday!
