December 21, 2011



Love your videos and love watching you create.

Stephanie Finn

This tutorial was nice. I like that you went outside the box for a holiday canvas. Inspiring.

Lisa Kind

Wow! This is gorgeous! This is my first time visiting and I must are a messy artist! LOL! I kept thinking oh no, she put the canvas down in the paint! But I can see that it didn't matter because of the type of art it is. Just beautiful! I'll be watching more for sure! TFS!

Suzanne W.

Love, love this. I will be in my craft room later creating!! This absolutely could hang all year. Mine will be hanging with my SHEART girls!

Rachel Yang

Will try a version of this tonight. I love your free reign with the textures. So liberating.


Hi Christy, thanks so much for sharing your knowledge. I made a copy of your canvas, following your tutorial step-by-step with very little deviation, except substituting materials with what I had on hand. Ended up with a pretty decent canvas that I can proudly hang on my wall! Thanks!!! Love you so much for your generous and kind spirit. Blessings to you and your family in this Christmas season!!

I posted my canvas in my blog here:


This is my pink version!

Thank you Christy, you inspired me all the year around, with your videos, chat, on-line courses (and your creams , too)....a great crafting year.
I wish you a very Happy Christmas.

Thanks to Michelle at Posh Scraps, I have now found a new blog to follow! Love this canvas, Christy. I think I'm going to attempt a Valentine's themed one using a heart instead of the tree after Christmas.


This is so awesome! You are such an inspiration. I took your 3 hearts workshop, and it was by far the best art journal class I have ever taken. I signed up for your colour class yesterday and I am eagerly waiting for my login information. I can't wait!


This is Fabulous christy!
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Thanks for the inspiration all year long! Love it.

Helene Persson

Just love it! Thanks for sharing.

Diane Jaquay

LOVE this!! I'm so excited, received my first kit and it's sitting under the Christmas tree waiting to be opened! I'm going to totally copy your project since this will be my very first mixed media project and I have no idea what I'm doing lol! One question for you, I don't have those Faber Castill pens, what other markers are similar? I have some copics, and a bunch of old Marvy LePlume's, but that's about it.


I am so glad you are back!!!! The canvas is absolutely beautiful!! I need to email you to put me on the list for the next kit too!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

absolutely fabulous ! Thanks for this stunning tutorial !


Love it love it love it!! So beautiful Christy! You make it look so effortless. Thank you for sharing that video with us. I can't wait to make my own! I wish you would make a DVD of all your "Behind the Art" videos you made this year. I would buy it for sure!


Joyeux Noël à vous Christy !!!!!


Love it Christy! Even though I don't have the December kit (shipping prices are ridiculous, right) you inspired me to re-create the canvas. I might give it to my grandmother.

Re: Youtube
You should be able to upload longer videos. I had the same problem and then one day youtube asked me if I wanted to upload larger files. So just watch out for that button. It requires a view verifications but it's worth it.

Pam Staley

I love this project! I have been concentrating on decorating our home, and I seriously need some creative time with paints, canvas, and rubons. I agree with Holly - so many of us want a CD of his music. He is so talented, just like his sister! Merry Christmas to you and your family.


OH so pretty!
I hope I can tackle this one at some point during my holidays!!
Thanks for sharing your genius :)

Holly McClellan

Really darling. this tree reminds me of a Christmas card I designed years ago. I'd forgotten about it, and it was one of my favorites. Your style is much more free spirited than mine, and I love to watch you create. Still loving that music...tell your brother we're all waiting for his CD to come out!
