I just finished this one today and I'm pretty pleased with her. She has been a work in progress for around 2 or 3 months now. Finally sat my butt down. Anyhow, hope you like her! She's sort of a Mother Earthy-kind o' girl. The page that the bird is made of came from a vintage children's book that I found at an Estate Sale in Australia.

Thanks so much, everyone  Grin Grin Grin

And Bobbie May - I was going to send you a message to check her out because I used a whole bunch of the goodness that you sent me! I used the texture paint and those medallion things in her hair! I love that little art kit you put together for me! Thank you so much xoxo

Thank you so much, everyone! Very happy with her! I might actually keep this painting even though it would be a perfect candidate for the juried art show I'm participating in in April! lol

Lovely!

It reminds me of a saying about harmful thoughts:

"You can't help thoughts flying over your head, but you CAN stop them from nesting in your hair!"
