A Gift...

'The Eccentric Lady, she noticed the beautiful'

This is what I made this morning.

I LOVE her.

I made her for a gift for someone.

She's a mixed media beauty made from LOTS of layers.  
I think there are about 4 layers in some places, depending on how I worked on them. 
For those of you who have been following my blog, if you remember the Madame Butterfly picture that I did (you can look for the post if you like), that will show you the process that I followed for this one.

I didn't take lots of pictures today, mainly because I was also keeping a very close eye on my little apprentice who was busy doing her own painting.  
But I did take a close up shot.


I just figured out that the face actually has 6 layers in total.

I really hope that my friend will like her (I know I would).  
I'll ask her to take a picture with her when she gets there. 
(she's going to the USA).

I wanted to show you this too.
I came across it whilst browsing the web the other day (the link was no longer active)
 I LOVE what it says.

This means a lot to me personally.

Watch Me...

Hi Kirsten,

Thank you for the compliment. Im really pleased how she turned out. i love the quote too, it's been said to me a lot through my life and now that I feel like a 'grown up' I'm going to do my own thing and say "Watch Me"
