Something sparkly caught my Eye...


Round #1

I bought a new Digi that I just love..
It if from Michelle Perkett..

So I thought it would be fun to add here to a canvas.
(Ok..  I have to tell you it's not a canvas. It's a box top)


After I finish painting and decoupaging and stamping and
who know what else to the canvas (box top)
 I colored her with copics and decoupage her on top..


Then came all the sparkly stuff..  I am pretty sure that is the 
technical term for it!!  Oh, before I added the sparkly stuff, 
I decoupage on the saying which I love.




"I was going to do something to save the world but then something
sparkly caught my eye.."

So I am going to try this again..  But I want to try something different
with the quote..  I not really sure it matches all her wonderfulness..
(I am pretty sure that is a word right) I am not to great at free handing the words.
Maybe I could try to rub-ons..  We will see..
So you should see Round #2  sometime...  That is if I don't get distracted..


By the way I showed this to Myles and this is the expression I got..


Maybe it's just to sparkly for his liking...

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hugs, Linda

Is Myles saying, "gag me with a spoon?" I guess pink and sparkle is not to his liking, but it is mine! This is lovely my friend! Have a great day!
