Pretty Girl

Hello! Well, I'm back in a mixed media mood today and I made this fun 6x6" canvas that I'm dedicating to all the pretty girls of the world and that includes YOU my beautiful friend!!! I really love this quote from one of the life cards in the Authentique paper collection called "Classique: Pretty". I worked the canvas around this delightful quote. And with the New Year upon us, I thought it a perfect time to create something with a new outlook and fresh perspective...it also seems a good fit for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #8- Something New For The New Year theme. I didn't' take process pics this time but I used all of the usual products plus a couple more to create this one. And here it is...
This particular canvas was made for a special friend in mind, but honestly it could be for any number of the sweet and lovely women in my life. I thought this little darling girl from Crafty Secrets was perfect to coordinate with the quote. I added a bejeweled crown atop her head as a reminder to always act as if you are wearing an invisible crown. God loves us like we are royalty and because of that, we can rest assured that in His eyes, we sparkle more brightly than diamonds and gold!! And just like God's whisper, the whisper of a pretty girl who knows she's loved can also be heard over the roar of a lion. This is true to my heart and what a grand gift it is!!
Thank you so much for visiting! Until next time--shine bright, pretty girl!!!

Holy cow Linsey, I am completely in love with this canvas! Your colours are so soft and wonderfully blended together! The splashes of black stamping create a fabulous contrast and that texture is fantastic!! Whatever did you use to create those bumpy areas?? Doesn't look like beads. big hugs :)
