Hi there peeps today I am sharing a Canvas Corp 6×6 Canvas Stitched Mini I decorated with a few of my girls and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. I had so many pictures I made a little video of the finished mini portfolio below but here is the cover! And a few tips and tricks!
I wanted to use some of the girls I had painted before so I decided to use this Transfer Artist paper! It was so easy to use, I printed my images the paper (as per instructions) ironed it onto my canvas…

Hello sweet blog readers!
Today is a new day and it is still chilly here in Texas!
Today I am sharing a little project I am working on for CHA.
It’s for the Banners of Hope Project
The Craft and Hobby Association,The Fabric Arts Council, Charity Wings
will work to coordinate a traveling exhibit of the Banners of Hope project
providing a message of Hope at hospitals, veteran, children’s and senior homes/centers across
the country, as well as provide continued exposure for CHA and the Fabric Arts Council.
I am one of many artists participating in this project that will be unveiled at CHA in Jan.
In addition to Gesso and drawing on my canvas I am adding letters, altering them with modeling paste and
Gesso so I can paint them whatever color I want to use for my project.
The green letters are iron ons- I will do those last, they spell the word “hope”.
I used Gelatos to color her face- I always start with the face, for me that is the most important part; Once the face
is how I want it everything else falls right into place.
Lots of color with Gelatos and a wet paint brush, for me I continue to add color until
it looks the way I want it to. Come on Thursday to see the finished project!
It was pretty intense so I have only one in process picture.
