I Love Art Canvas

There's a new challenge beginning at Mari Digis and I had fun with my latest inspirational Design Team project! Lately, I have become interested in designing stores on art canvases. The inspiration came from a book I got for Christmas "Collage Couture Studio Paper dolls," by Julie Nutting. I had become aware of her wonderful rubber paper doll stamps.

For this canvas I used the digi stamp I Love Art provided to me by Mari Digi for my Design Team inspirational project. I colored her with Copic Markers and cut her out. I placed soft pads on her back. I also colored the rubber stamped Adara paper doll by Julie Nutting and cut her, but reversed her dressing her using scrapbook paper.

I painted the canvas with acrylic paint and sealed it with Beacon Decoupage. I used a Cricut Machine to cut two frames from scrapbook paper to use as store windows and stamped flowers all around them and sealed them also with the decoupage. I used scrapbook paper for an awning roof and decorated the roof with lace.

The furniture was printed using the Deco Dressing Room Digikit the Craft Artist program and then cut out. Small doilies were used at the top of the window frames and also decoupage was painted over them. I made flowers from assorted pieces and used a variety of arty stickers to embellish the canvas.

I'm looking forward to seeing your projects using a Mari Digi image on our challenge!
