Item of the Day: Personalized Secret Messages from Messy Canvas

Messycanvas is an etsy shop run by artist Mandy Steward. She creates amazing art using mixed media on canvas. She does this very cool, entirely unique art that she calls a “Secret Message” creation. Basically, you tell her a tiny bit about yourself when you order. You can share a struggle, a favorite quote of yours, or a question you’ve been pondering. She then interprets that into a personalized message for you and incorporates it into a piece using markers, collage, paints, oils, pastels, and anything else that strikes her fancy.

Mandy describes her process, saying, “Think of me like a gypsy with a beauty mark and head scarves, a fortune teller of sorts minus the crystal ball but definitely with big hoop earrings, a shaman leaning in close and whispering to you the words you’re most looking for, so that you can have a visual representation of them ever before you.

I hope you find a message that speaks to you or to a kindred spirit. I hope it’s a message you’ve been searching for. From my soul to yours.”

Visit MessyCanvas to get your own secret message, or one for a friend!
