"cousins"

Sharing an 11 x 14 canvas I made using a photo of my two daughters and my sisters' daughters.  A while ago I took this pic when they were being silly knowing I just had to use it one day.  Well that day came..we were giving a little going away party for my one niece who is about to start her first teaching job.  She is moving into her own place and I figured she needed a reminder of her family :
I started with colllaged dp over the canvas... book pages and ephemra.  I painted  (with my fingers) white acrylic wash and did some stenciling and sponging over some sequin waste.  I cut out the pic and placed it on with the sentiment (computer generated).  I added a few card stock stickers and washi tape then did some doodles and lined around the pic in a square.  I absolutely loved the way it came out and plan on doing this A LOT more!

Thanks for looking and have a great week!  Linking to ..."Paint party Friday"
