I wanted to share another canvas I completed for the She Art Workshop that I am taking from Christy Tomlinson. I love all of the fun things I am learning about, and how messy everything is getting. I’m learning to accept the creative mess…not something I’ve come to embrace easily.
On a side note, Christy is going to be offering her workshop again in April so if you are even thinking about trying your had at mixed media art I encourage you to take this class. It is a really inexpensive class and well worth it for the amount of information she gives you. I love how she talks to the painting while she creates. If you sign up please tell her I (Chrissy Johnston) pointed you in her direction. She is giving away a free spot on her blog here.
So here she is:
This time I focused on creating a real background as well as adding some extra texture to her dress. I love the 50’s inspired dress and the beehive hairdo.
Here are some more up close photos of the background and the words. I chose these words because they are a real representation of what this class is helping me to accomplish.
Remember to smile through your journey!
