Sketch-EZ®

from The Artful Maven®


Anita Houston, The Artful Maven®, has been teaching canvas painting classes since 2013 across the country using her tissue sketches, and she has no formal painting training. She has found that people across the globe are timid to try painting because they see a scary blank canvas, and feel that they do not have the skills to sketch a subject to paint or are too scared to try.

Her new product Sketch-EZ® from WeCraft, will help those who feel this way to finally start to paint, as well as help the seasoned painter to mass produce or try new substrates. Anita is launching 12 designs this year, six floral and six with animals, that can be cut apart or used whole, and collaged on a variety of surfaces (including but not limited to canvas, wood, metal, glass, and paper) using clear gesso or a gel/collage medium and a paint brush. Once Sketch-EZ® is applied and dry on a surface, apply color on top with virtually any medium such as acrylic paints, oil paints, encaustics, watercolors, pastels, colored pencils, or even crayons. Think of Sketch-EZ® as a collaged coloring book page where you are free to go beyond the lines or even add things in to make it your own. You can do it...you can be a painter if you try! In addition, Sketch-EZ® can be used in card making, art journaling, scrapbooking, book/journal making, jewelry design, and creating one of a kind home decor pieces.

The sky really is the limit!

The skills are built in a cumulative way, and culminate to four final projects.
