Spring Shoes by Jen

Shoes - 7

Hi Artsy friends!  Jen here with another of my shoe creations!  I love altering shoes to wear with my basic outfits.  I always feel great wearing something that I created and something that is one of a kind. These shoes were purchased a local large store and were canvas.  Perfect for altering with Gelatos® colors!  I used Margarita Mix, Metallic Mint, Snow Cone, Lemon, Mango, and Passion Fruit for these shoes.

Be Awesome Canvas - by Lisa


Hi everyone! It's Lisa here to share a really "awesome" canvas with you today. This is on a 6 x 6 " non cradled maple hardwood art board and is perfect for creating any king of mixed media pieces. I use the term "canvas" loosely as it actually has no canvas attached to it, it is solid wood.

I wanted to use some of the older Textural Accents, older Gelatos® colors and mix them up with the new, and this is what I created. I hope that you like it. I had a really great time creating it.

I was inspired by the hexagons from theMixed Media Stencils 101 Collection set and these warm colors.
