 Some New Art--She Art Style


I've  made  a  new  girl  here--what  I  like  to  call  my Christy  Tomlinson  she  art  girl   with  help  from   Julie  Nutting.    Christy's  was  one  of  my  favorite  classes  and she's  so  generous  in sharing  different  techniques,  and  Julie's  book  Collage  Couture  is  one  of  my  favorite  art  books--also  lots  of  great  techniques  and ideas.   So  I  combined  what  I  learned  from  both  of  them  to  make  my  own  version--


She  is  actually  on  a  cupboard  door--


....a  very  LARGE  cupboard  door--it's hard  to  get  a  good  photo  of  the  whole  thing

I   love  adding  all  of  the  little  details  and  embellies  as  much  as  I  like  creating  it.....

I  like  mixing  the  old  and  the  new  and  whatever  I  may  find.   When  I  make  these  girls--they  always  will  help  me  put  their  story  together,   so  I  just  go  on  my  little  scavenger  hunt  around  my  house  to  find  those  just-right  additions.....
