Today, I would like to share an 8 x 10 canvas that I created with the Scraps Of Elegance May Kit-Yesterdays. I just love all the She Art pieces that I have seen others do, and have wanted to try my hand at them, but wanted mine to reflect me and my own style. I kept trying to wrap my head around how I would want mine to look and then I was reading through my "Sew Somerset" magazine and there was an article by Carrie Payne. Carrie is an artist who loves to sew her She Art pieces into quilts, and she confesses that she is a "Magpie" which is a person who collects things, especially things of little use or value, and to which I can so relate. I am definitely a Magpie!! She creates her quilt "She" and gives them dresses with little treasures tucked into them. I wanted to give my "She" a similiar look, but decided on layers of pink and white, glitter tulle to get a more airy look and feel.
I did lots of techniques to create this layout, and used the Color Add On from this month's kit along wit pieces from the Embellishment and Kit to round it all out.
I really love how this turned out!! It really reflects my love for collecting things and I enjoyed getting to try something new. I don't think it is something I would like to do often, but it is always fun to push yourself out of your element and to try something challenging. I hope you find the time to try something new, and to express yourself through art. It really is freeing. Hugs, ~Renea
