She Art Fly Girl

Hi everyone! I thought it would be fun to share the first of MANY projects I've done with the Scraptastic Club January 2012 "Button Box" kit and add on. I wanted to use my kit in a different way this month, so I didn’t do a scrapbook page as my first project. I've been seeing She Art girls all over the internet, and my good friend Nancy sent me one. I decided to make one to send to her in return!



A lot of the embellishments on this canvas have meaning. The three butterflies stand for her three kids that she homeschools. That's where the sentiment came from too! (She's pretty awesome.) I used stamps, paint, bubble wrap, gesso, Stickles, antique lace, rub ons, and mist. I did a ton of masking. As you can see, this canvas has a little bit of everything on it!

My She Art girl is wearing boots because Nancy loves boots. Her boots have stars on them because she's originally from Texas. The extra big sun is to burn the fog off in California. That's where she lives now. I’m kinda jealous of all of the warm weather she has this time of year! LOL



She also has a belt made of antique lace that another friend gave me. I stamped with distress ink on her wings and then misted them. I added lots of bling because Nancy loves bling! Hehe



I also wanted to show you a close up look at the bottom of her dress! I inked the dress with distress ink and then added rub on stitches to the bottom. I used Stickles in between the stitches.

The grass was done in three layers. The first layer was plain green paint that I daubed on. The second layer was made up of darker paint that I swirled through. The third layer was made out of a mixture of gesso and green glimmer mist to add a bit of sparkle and texture. After it dried, I stamped a few flourishes on top with Staz On ink.

I hope that this post inspired you! Don't forget to check out the "Button Box" kit in the shop. It's just gorgeous!

Wood Grain Thank you

Heather, I am linking up your post tomorrow to my blog. This is so amazing I couldn't even comment last night. Seriously outdid yourself here. I thought you were mostly a scrapper, but I now see I was VERY VERY wrong! The girl who is getting this art is one lucky girl!
