Collage Girl Inspired by Suzie

I have been into a new art love, making collage girls.  My inspiration first started with my friend Sandy.
Her and I spent time on the phone chit chatting and she got me out of the little box I was in. She encouraged me to make Mixed Media canvas's which led to purchasing Julie Nutting's book and then find her blog.  Sandy is knowledgable in different art forms and this one just makes me happy.

I just received a gift from another blog friend Suzie and when I saw the paper in there my brain immediately went to "Canvas".  Last December Suzie and I exchanged cards with a little something extra, so she just sent me mine, (you know how it is, we all get very busy) so to my delight here is what she sent me.

I cannot tell you how how fast my heart was beating but I was thrilled, I love all of it, and now I have one of her most loved tags.  That tag is just awesome and gorgeous in person.  Thank you so much Suzie for the gifts with your tag, you have touched my heart!

I took the paper pad Suzie gave me Prima "Rondelle" and started making this collage.  I only need 4 sheets, rub ons and paint and decopauged it on canvas.

I made my own girl and dress by drawing her out free handed.  I painted her hair and shoes with acrylic paint.  A few pearls and gems here and there and then my scribbling around her.

I hope you enjoyed my canvas girl, I have 2 more to show you but I am waiting for the recipients to receive theirs by mail.  2 other bloggers and me have done these and are exchanging them, so fun!!

Thank you for stopping by today,  I love your opinions so if you have time, please leave me a comment about my collage girl.
