Tried Something New

As you can see this is the Nov/Dec 2007 issue of Cloth,Paper,Scissors. I read the article "patch it together" on page 73. I have always loved Kelly Rae Roberts work, so I thought...okay follow directions for background & get busy. How hard could it be? Well as you can see my background is nothing like the photo in the magazine. I think my paint was too thick & dried too fast. But I did learn a few things for next time. And I will try again sometime. Anyway I think my "Lucy" still turned out okay. I made her into a valentine's day "Lucy". I started her sometime ago, got discouraged, put her away, finally today pulled her back out & finished her. But I am happy with the final result.
