Creative with Quotes (Pink Paislee She Art) 55

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, February 23, 2012 @ 6:30 AM | , , ,

Hi there! Today I am sharing a project that I created for the Pink Paislee blog based on this week's  theme "Creative with Quotes". I would be tickled pink if you would visit the Pink Paislee blog (click HERE) as well :)
I created a canvas using mainly products from the newly released Pink Paislee She Art collection designed by Mixed Media artist, Christy Tomlinson. The She Art - Truth paper is FULL of some of my favorite quotes including "She didn't care if it was perfect". I think as designers, painters, artists, crafters, etc... we need to remember that our projects don't NEED to be perfect. It's ok to make a mistake, it's an opportunity to learn. If you don't like something, simply paint over it! :)
The She Art collection contains so many products making it so easy to create a mixed media project and so much more! To create my girl's dress, I combined the Courage polk a dot design along with the Soar multicolored/patterned design. Using fun designs such as criss crosses, scallops and zig-zag stitches from the Press Ons Rub Ons Doodle Art Stitches.
I added a bit of dimension and texture using the Vintage Doily Mask along with molding paste. What a fun and wonderfully designed stencil don't you think? I also used Press Ons Artsy Textures which add another layer and fun patterns.
In case you are interested to see how I created this canvas, shown below are some of the steps taken along the way. First I cut various pieces of patterned She Art papers and adhered it to the canvas.
Using the Vintage Doily Mask as my pattern, I applied molding paste to add dimension and texture:
Once you fill in desired area of the stencil with molding paste, gently lift up and remove the stencil revealing the gorgeous design. Allow to dry completely.
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you enjoyed my project :)
