It's My Time Canvas

This canvas is a bit darker and more blended but she sure looks great on tan or green walls.  She matches alot of my home but I am going to sell her as with the others I am making.

My paper is from 7 Dots and Prima Sunset. I used acrylic paint, TH distressed inks, texture and Fabercastell brush pens.  The words are from another 7 Dots line.  I also have a few stamps on it.

I did alot of shading so some of the areas of paper barely show.  I wanted raised things and some texture which I mixed with my acrylic paint and used as mask to dot it on. 
Below is a bird from a fiber ribbon and I dabbed on paint with texture mixed in and then adhered the metal bird with glossy accents.

Here is a close up of the flower stamp and a gem, the bottom shows my texture using a mask.  Also you can see the words and how I blended them into the papers.

At the bottom I made grass and lightly drew in flowers.  Her dress is outlined in glittered and her flower is a metal one from Prima Vintage Trinkets.

I used texture and acrylic paint in her hair and highlighted it with another color.  A metal charm and some gems are in it. Above her is a heart from the same fiber ribbon and texture, I inked a wooden heart and put it on top and then blended it into the papers.  The left is the bird cage that I Frantaged and then inked a wooden bird and glued on.  More words.

I had to do alot of shading to blend everything in.

I love creating the girls and making them up as I go.  This one is so different from the rest.
Thank you for stopping by today,


  1. Hello Kelly... Now, let me pick myself up. Of all the canvasses you did, this is my favorite. Probably because this girl and I have a lots in common. Lots of contrasts, lots of BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL, Funny... because in all my work, I have been told of going to the extremes, the soft side and the bold side. And this is precisely what this girl is all about. I LOVE HER.
