Hello, I hope you are all well. Today I’m sharing some mini she art canvas using an assortment of stencils to add dimension and texture.
I would like to share with you all that my inspiration came from taking one off “the she art workshop” by Christy Tomlinson” back in 2011. And since then I am still so very much inspired to create “she art girls” of course I’m adding my own touch and style to them now, especially with an assortment of awesome stencils by “the crafters workshop”.
But first a couple of the stencils I used:
6×6 doodling templates – mini impressions
6×6 doodling templates – mini butterfly collage
6×6 doodling templates – hourglass
6×6 doodling templates – mini repeating pods
Step 1: Grab some canvas boards any size you like to work with. I’m using 5×7 boards. Use an assortment of papers and collage, using a clear drying decoupage glue. Allow to dry.
Step 2: Grab some texture paste and stencils. Randomly stencil all over, mix it up by using different designs. Allow to dry.
Step 3: Using sprays and inks and randomly paint your inks on. Allow to dry.
Step 4: Use an assortment of stamps and a permanent ink and randomly stamp.
Step 5: Cut out each of your girls using scraps of pattern paper and glue down. Allow to dry.
Step 6: Paint in her skin color and hair. Add texture to her dress using a stencil and texture paste. Allow to dry.

Step 7: Color your stencil design in using ink. Add a short quote using random sticker words. Painted a flower in hair and allow to dry.
Step 8: Once everything is dry. Add the rest of your details using gel pens, rub-ons, bling and stamps etc.
and the end result. You can now frame these canvas or send to a friend. I’m going to take these in and get postcards made up and send some hello’s to special friends.
Thank you for popping by today and I hope I have inspired you to have a wee play with your stencils.
