"Dream" Girls Room Art and a Knock off painting!

So today we have a WINNER!

Mercedes wins the My Memories Suite software! Congrats Mercedes, watch for an email with your software information.

Now, on to what I've been up to in the art room this past week.

So, I had so much fun with my last mixed media name art (DIY Tips Here) I decided to do a girly version. I used the word Dream this time because I wanted a theme that could be used while wide awake or while drifting off to dreamland..

Pin It Below is the early stages.. at this point you can see I've added the main paint colors and added any scrap paper additions. This time I used patterned paper for 3 of my larger clouds, the rest is acrylic paint and all elements wrap around the edge.

Here is a closer look..

I added little pink gems on the crown

I tie all the buttons right onto the canvas so there is no worry of them falling off.

While I was doing this painting I was simultaneously working on a Knock Off Painting as well.. This was inspired by a painting from this Ballard Designs.

Pin It Another cake coming next week and a Scrap work (I have no idea what it will be.)
