Magnolia and Mixed-Media Canvas

Good afternoon everyone! Well, I finally had a little inspiration so I worked on a birthday card for a friend showcasing the cute happy princess Tilda from the "Once Upon A Time" collection. She is colored with copics. All embellishments are from my stash. The inside of the card features two Magnolia tags and the papers are from the MF C'est La Vie Collection, a gift from my dear friend.

This canvas is my continuing journey into mixed media art. Please keep in mind that this is a learning process for me and I have a lot to learn!!!! Definitely not feeling secure in this new endeavor yet!

Thank you so much for your visit and I am especially thankful for your comments. Big Hugs to all!


  1. Your Maggie card is so cute! Love the scene you created with her. The mixed media piece is very cool, you are doing great.


  2. Christina your card is so charming and delightful! And with canvas you shouldn't feel insecure! It is fantastic! Love those colors and all the details-I would be proud to hang this!

  3. What a gorgeous canvas! Tilda looks awesome amongst that majestic scene.


  4. You are so sweet, I see creativity all over the place. I love the background Tilda is running through. The scene is gorgeous. Your papers are beautiful and a nice inside too. Love your canvas, it has some whimsy in it that I am drawn to. Love the scallops and lace type edges and the butterfly with the lace, Your fence is really nice and look at the ornate door and window, very pretty. Love the colors and you blended them very nicely together. I am pretty confident in your art work, I know the feelings you have, I still have them, we are more critical to ourselves than we should be. You are creating very awesome artwork!!!
