She Can Do All Things Through Christ

"She can do all things through Christ, who strengthens her." Phillipians 4:13. A long-time friend of mine is learning to live life as a widow, quite unexpectedly. I wanted to make her something that would stand the test of time as she faces the future. I pray it blesses her days ahead.

I'm crazy loving this little she-art girl. Her braids were so fun to do. I wanted to try my hand at doing a neutral background, and it turned out to be a very fun challenge for me to find ways to make the neutral colors pop. Lots of stamping with black staz-on ink this time. Isn't the bird cage super caaute! It's a stamp that somehow found it's way into my shopping cart from the Donna Downey Studios. How do things like that just happen?! LOL

Getting pretty good at smudging, blending, rubbing, dotting stuff with my fingers. Quite an achievement from a girl who, not so long ago, was known to say "Ewww, do I have to get my hands dirty?!" Ohhh, the things we do for art.
