I have this friend….one of those friends that really “knows you”….a confidante….someone who lives a “parallel life” to you, and just KNOWS what you are going through. She also happens to be my 1st cousin. Her name is AMY and we share A LOT in common….we both ‘got’ the naturally curly hair, big green eyes, & flat feet…of all genetic things We have ALWAYS been close, and really she is more like a sister to me. She is incredibly artistically talented…and amazes me everyday with her work and her ability to make ART more than just a hobby. Do me a favor and check out her AMAZING work HERE! Well….she recently had a very special birthday….and I really wanted to make her something extra-special….and so I made her a “She Art” girl:
I bought this canvas for dirt cheap at our local Salvation Army (my “own” way of recycling)
I used some DCWV paper…..tons of acrylic stamps from: Prima, CTMH, & Glitz Designs for the background texture….the flower in her hair is Prima…and it was hand-picked by my baby Elizabeth. The title lettering is from October Afternoon and 7 Gypsies. The black bling is from Prima…and their are a ton of rub-ons that I just couldn’t keep up with. I also used a Tim Holtz mask here. Here are some up-close photos:
Happy Birthday AMY! Love you!!!!
