A Picture and some of it's parts...

This was a wonderful background to do. Book pages applied and then pink and white tissue that was striped. Followed by a little white gesso and then clear gesso over that. Painting and staining and background to dry.

The cut out dress parts. Finding the papers for the colors to mix was my hardest problem.
I like her hair and you can finally see my style coming through.



She needed a butterfly bow!



I still have the final painting of lips and eyes so they will show better and of coarse the satin finish. This is destined for my granddaughter. 11x14.
