Never would I have believed that I would love MIXED MEDIA art journalling, canvases or anything else so much!!! It feels so good to get dirty and creative! I should have known really....I am a completely messy scrapper!!! lol Piles and piles of stuff strewn about while I create but then I am terribly anal about cleaning up between projects. I like to start completely fresh with all my supplies back their appropriate places!! (Complete Type A personality).
Last week I was cropping with my scrappy friends at the Scrapbox and a few of us decided to mainly work on our versions of Christy Thomlinson's "She" art canvases. If you are looking for an intro into canvases or mixed media or art journalling this is really a great place to start. Now I will admit I was very skeptical at first but decided to give it a go and give it some honest effort. It was hard for me to get all the videos watched at the same pace as my fellow online classmates but I got it done and was really happy that I did. I can't show you my first foray into this crazy new world as I did it in my friend Katie's art journal, remember the circle journal group I joined, so it is a secret until we are done all 12 journals and have a big reveal.
Back to the canvas, I don't particularily enjoy the "she's" but I was able to transfer all that I learned to create other types of themes. Sharon was the first to show us her Robots and man, I was completely blown away!!! Great idea!! I knew my boys would love something similar so I gathered some supplies and got to work!! The canvases below are all ones I have done this week!!! I have plans to do some Star Wars and Harry Potter for my eldest son this weekend at another crop at the Scrapbox!!
Thanks for looking!
