Natasha May Cotton Candy Girl

I joined Natasha May's online workshop 'Cotton Candy Girls' a few weeks ago - FABULOUS!!!  Her artwork is fantastic, the tutorials and workshops are so easy to follow - highly recommend it! And at $25 (about £15) - so cheap and I really would have paid more.

I got a 13" x 10" canvas out, some Dylusion inks, gesso, stamps and created a bright background, stenciled some gesso through a stencil.  Whilst that was drying I drew out the face on some scrapbook paper, coloured her in with Polychromos pencils, cut out a basic dress for her and stuck her onto the background with Golden Gel Medium.  I then stamped the free flower stamp from Craft Stamper onto scraps of paper and cut them now, stamped the flower stamp and grass stamp from Hot Picks Paperartsy 'Lifes a Garden at the bottom and glued on the flowers.  Added some more script text over the image, added lace and buttons, stamped the title 'Lifes a Garden' and here it is.....

Can't wait to make more :O)
