I have loved dolls, history, and the Victorian Era since I was little and can credit my grandmother for that. As a young girl she gave me a Godey’s Fashion print for August 1870 from my great, great Aunt Flossie. I was captivated by the dresses and became hooked. I just love to research everything and anything about the Victorian Era. I also love to design Victorian dolls. I hope you enjoy my Victorian Dolls, Victorian Traditions,The Victorian Era, and Me blog.

My Mixed Media Tutu Dress Canvas Pictures Adventure


I have so many different crafting interests that when I find a craft project I want to try I rarely make more than two or three items. That was until took a couple of Artful Gathering mixed media classes. I fell in love with mixed media and, as a result, have been making some ( make that many) different types of mixed media craft items from tutu canvases to tiny houses, to fairy houses, to seasonal and holiday collage pictures. For the last three months I've been totally absorbed in my mixed media projects and have loved every minute of it.


I started this adventure with the 3 mixed media tutu dress canvas picture projects that I made from Debby Anderson's "A Romantic Journey On Canvas" at Artful Gathering.

I knew before taking this class that I would love it so as I was going along I anticipated making more then the number of projects required for the course. After sculpting the tutu for the class I decided to sculpt a few extra's in various sizes. I love giving handmade gifts so making a few extra tutu's was the smart thing to do.

I ended up making five additional tutu's - which resulted in five other mixed media tutu dress canvas pictures being made.




Three of the additional tutu pictures I made are shown in the picture at the beginning of this post and above.


The tutu picture shown above is on an 8" by 8" by 3/4" canvas.


The tutu picture shown above is on a 5" by 7" by 3/4" canvas.


The tutu picture shown above is on a 6" by 6" by 3/4" canvas.

The remaining two aren't quite done so I can't show you those as of yet.  You'll just have to stay tuned for those when they're finished in the next few months.
