She had it all!



Yay, Friday at last!!! Some weeks are so full af surprises and work that the weekend is a welcome retreat from the every day buzz. Today I'm showing something that I've been working for four weeks or more, so no stress with this one. I used a magazine face and made something new of it. I got a lovely sweet treat from a former student and used the golden box pieces to add some ornamental gold details. Is this lady a princess caught in a golden cage? Her ear certainly looks frozen!

I would love to enter Paint Party Friday week 52 year 5.

Materials used:
Liquitex gesso and acrylic pens, a variety of acrylics, white Posca pen, Uni fine point pens, Golden Liquid pearls and Perfect Pearls, Washi tape, paper scraps.

Happy Friday!!!

Love and hugs
Maarit
