OH!  And a quick note to those who asked yesterday...My Mom bought the slippers for me at Anne Taylor Loft for Christmas.  I don't know if they have those ones anymore, but I know they had a similar pair in black that were really cute, too!







Some Said She Didn't Deserve...

This is a mixed media on stretched canvas.  It is small.  I think it is about 3 1/2 x 51/2 or so.




Some Said... Wings

I created the background using multiple layers.  I began with a thick layer of gesso using brushstrokes to add texture.  Over that, was added a vintage book page with french text.  I covered that with an acrylic paint/glitter glaze mix that I thinned out and then added a couple of layers of crepe paper over the vintage book page.  I overstamped with distress inks and sealed the base so that the ink would not run.




Some Said...face

I used decoupaged the face image after cutting it to the shape I desired and singing the edges.  The wings are stamped and cut from handmade papers.




Some Said....torso

Her torso is stamped into polymer clay with distress ink.  I love this because even after curing in the oven, the distress ink retains it's imperfect look.




Some Said...detail

I used various trinkets and such to detail the features.  The piece is finished with a simple phrase:




Some said...text

I think her simple beauty and the glitter that surrounds this young lady prove those people to be quite wrong, indeed.  That's what I think.
