She believed she could fly.....

.........So she spread her wings and flew.

"Music" is the challenge this week at Frosted Designs.  If you haven't been on the FD blog, make sure you stop over there to see the Design Team's creations.  They are beautiful!  

 I wanted to make a She Art canvas for my project.  I have had this canvas in my mind for quite some time so it was nice to get her done.  The base paint is wall paint of my best friend's.  I helped her paint her room and her two daughter's rooms in their new house.  As I was washing out my brush, it occurred to me to use them as the base for my canvas and the sun.  I love the way it turned out.  

I used a sheet of Crate Paper (LOVE Crate Paper products) for her skirt.  It seemed a bit flat to me so I cut strips of the same paper and curled them slightly with a pencil.  

I wanted her heart to be 3D, so I made one.  I love the way my heart turned out!  I will be showing you this in an upcoming tutorial.  

Feathers, some bubble wrap painting, a bit of stamping, lace, and a button finish out my canvas.  This was such a fun project to do.  I have ideas for my next one and cannot wait to get her started.  

I hope you will join us over at Frosted Designs for this week's challenge.  Make sure you link up your project so I can check them out and for the chance to win a great prize.  Everyone loves a prize!  :)  

~Make your day a beautiful one~
