Mini Canvas Paintings!!!

In between the twenty or so art projects I am currently working on, I have finally found a moment to post about a few little things that have reached some stage of completion. I say that because sometimes I find myself going back to stuff I already did and trying to make it a bit better. Sometimes I am happy with the results, but sometimes not. I do this because my once quite small creative "toolbox" has been expanding more and more every day. I have learned so much by watching a few amazing artists who are willing to share their techniques, and I am forever grateful that they have taken the time to not only share their beautiful work, but to show others how they do it. Muriel Moret/Mimi Bondi https://mimibondi.com/, Nika Rousse/Nika in Wonderland on youtube, and also nicoletta zanella on youtube - YOU ROCK and you make beyond awesome art...THANK YOU!!!!!!

So...for my first wee little post today, I have a few mini canvases, size 2.5 x 2.5, perfect for the wall in any dollhouse where the inhabitants love color :) I got these little canvases and easles at Joann's and painted them using my DecoArt Media white gesso and Americana acrylics, with a touch of that Daler Rowney System 3 fluorescent pink, which I cannot live without. The stamps are either my "custom" eraser stamps or from a set by Hero Arts called Tiny Background Stamps. White Sharpie paint pen on top. On the second painting I used a little black paint pen too. On the third painting the trees are made with black fabric paint and then painted over.


  1. These are adorable. Lucky is the doll that gets these in her house.

  2. Thank you both!!! I have not gotten to decorating any of my dollhouses yet, but soon...I am going to make a tiny art studio/shop and I will need plenty of paintings for sale and display :) maybe some of my mini loving friends will want some too for their dollhouses
