She Art Girls - the dreamer

Allow me to introduce you to another of my She Art girls inspired by Christy Tomlinson's class.  

This is Maude - a small town girl with dreams of going to the big city someday.  With a little love and a song in her heart, she knew she could do anything.  Although she first had to work to tame her big unruly bouffant hair-do with a headband whenever the weather was humid :-)


Here's a close-up of this background.  A favorite part is the paint stamping of circles.  The big circle is a canning jar lid, but my favorite is the center of a roll of scotch tape because it gives me a circle within a circle.  You can also see a bit of grid texture - that's stamped with the bottom of a flip-flop!  It's really fun to see what you can find around the house to use as a texture stamp.

The latest issue of Somerset Studio arrived and you might know she is part of this issue.
You are certainly having fun with on-line classes.
There is so much to interest the eye on the background but it is Maude who steals the show.
Adore this.

Just fantastic Penny. I love the "Faceless girl" she is adorable.
I just love the use of the bottle/can tops and flip flop...Ha Ha. I love using stuff like that. I used a stick to do lines the other day and i have a bottle top that has the double circle...fab.
