Hiya all - hope this finds you all happy and well! What a gorgeous, sunny day we had here today ....... albeit I was at work for the majority and sat in my North facing office ..... but still, I know it was definitely sunny and much warmer than it has been for months, which can only mean one thing! Spring is definitely peeping her head around the corner! Woohoo!
Today I am sharing with you a fabulous image created by the extremely talented Heather Valentin of Lacy Sunshine. I have only recently come across her amazing art and I'm smitten with her gorgeous images.
This gorgeous chicky babe is 'Hippie Eleanor'
Isn't she super sweet!
I coloured Eleanor up with my Copics - I found her hair a little tricky as it's the first time I've ever coloured wavy hair like this, but I had loads of fun practising ;)
For this girly I felt that an outdoor spring feel was a must! I used my gorgeous 'Spring Drop' First Edition papers by Dovecraft and added a little field fence die from Crealies, which I also coloured up with Copics.
Hair - E33, 35, 37, 51, 53 Skin - E00, 11, E21
Trousers - BG23, 15, G00 Top - R35, 32, 30, 00 Flip-Flops - E08, YR68, YR02
I added 3D glaze to her glasses (although you can't tell from this pic lol)
I have a mixture of lovely flowers on here - the main rose and little buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the rolled ones underneath are from Marianne Design Flowers LR0256. I've just bought this die and LOVE it - no probs matching flowers with papers and they're a whole load of fun to make :)
I computer generated the sentiment using 'Groovy' font and then paper pieced the CHILL and cut little paper flowers out of the backing papers to give it that Hippie flowery feel ......
