I have just returned from a shopping spree with Scarlett (5 year old grand-daughter) and I have to admit it was exhausting, poor Rob was beside himself and all he could think of was finding the nearest coffee shop.
Scarlett is a tornado and screaming hurricane compressed into a little body, and one has to keep her grounded frequently otherwise she becomes very enthusiastic about things, perhaps enthusiastic is not the right word, maybe exuberant and wacky describes her in a better light, whatever, the assistants were very tolerant, they are used to such obstreperous children no doubt, stripping herself naked and trying each item on appeared to be a normal occurrence to them, where as I for the life of me was quite bewildered when the same process was done to try on shoes... what the hell, who has to be naked to try on shoes!!!!
Anyway I survived...Just.
Little Angel she is not, but I love her to pieces.
So with that little story out of the way I will now show you the wall hanging I made her for Easter, ironically it is of a sweet girl with wings...what was I thinking.
The background behind the girl with wings was made with watercolour paints and cling wrap placed on top and left to dry, when removed a unique pattern is left, which creates a sense of movement and texture on the paper.
The stitched Bg was stamped, and the wood veneer elements painted.

Have a great week and thanks so much for your visit.
