Meet Audrey

I recently took a "She-Art" self paced workshop by Christy Tomlinson.  She really helped me understand layering which is something I have struggled with in all areas of crafting. 

A friend asked if I could make a canvas for her daughter.  She gave me a wonderful quote from Audrey Hepburn and provided the color palette.  After that she let me do whatever I wanted.  

I started with some lovely rose tissue paper that had been used to wrapped an RAK I won a while back (thanks, Debi)-I'm sure you understand that almost compulsive need to keep everything for some project not yet thought of :-) 

After I added some of that beautiful tissue paper onto the canvas  I began painting and stamping, which is oh so much fun!  And then I added some rub-ons I won from a Soul Scrap Quest Challenge over at Soul Scrappers (thanks, Shazza).  Again, oh so much fun!  And here she is...Audrey. 

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my crafting journey with you...Happy Craftin'!

Mary's A-Z challenge has gone live.  What a fun challenge!  The challenge runs through February 20th, 2013 so there's plenty of time to join in :-).  You can find all the details here.  Because everyone can choose their own word there's  wonderful mix of inspiration popping up in the gallery.

I'm doing an 8x8 mini album for the challenge.  Each letter will represent something going in my life at that moment.  As you may be able to tell by my title, due to the unseasonably warm January we've had in Georgia my allergies have kicked into high gear!
