The focus of this particular class of Christy's is on the 'She' - promoting self worth and self affirmation, self love and acceptance of who you are - all in the context of learning techniques for using all kinds of mixed media!
There is so much 'stuff' on my creation - I'm just going to show you close ups and then list the supplies at the bottom! There are 3 weeks of classes with the She Art Workshop that you just go into and watch at your own pace - you have a year to access them on line - so I have two more "she's" to go - designing the 'she' a little differently in each class and learning more mixed media techniques. I'll share those when I've completed them!
I was nervous about getting her hair to look good - but with Christy's instructions I was able to do it!
I also used rub ons - see the little white lace at the bottom of the dress - and you can see one at the neck of the dress above as well. Below you can see the red where I sprayed the Pomegranate Glimmer Mist.
I used a 9"x12" canvas for my She Art - Christy favors 6"x12 - but Michaels didn't carry that size - you can really use any size you want and just adjust your 'She'! You don't even have to use a canvas - you can create on a journal page or just card stock.
I'm really thrilled with my first attempt at such a grand mixed media project! I highly recommend any of Christy's workshops!
I hope you can stop by tomorrow - I will be posting Day 1 of the Waltzingmouse August Release Sneak Peeks! You won't want to miss it!
