I have a special cousin that has moved away and I decided she must have some art to pretty up her new place. I turned to my crafty partner Digital Misfit to design me another wonderful drawing to work with. She never disappoints! She designed and drew the little girl and I did the rest.
The girls face and hair are both done with colored pencil, water color pencil, water colors, acrylic paint, and graphite pencil.

The background is done with torn papers, inks, and a glaze to give it a rich texture and depth.

Collage butterflies for her to catch in her net too!

I think she will be loved in her new home as much as I loved making her.

seriously love the colors your used - that background is fabulous!
She turned out beautifully, especially with the little lace accents.
Hope your cousin loves her in her new home.
