About a girl - Syah's secret garden


Hi everyone, hope your week is going well. At Simon Says Stamp and Show this week the theme is 'for the love of sparkle' and I like a bit of sparkle :D so here's a canvas that I'm entering that has a sparkle in the form of stardust stickles.


Another Christie Tomlinson inspired art doll which I free hand cut together with a dragonfly and a bird cut from paper by Crafty Individuals. Die cuts are Memory Box, Magnolia and Tim Holtz and they're collaged into the surface.


Lots of stickles glitter glue on the butterfly punch out, the dragonfly wings and on the sparkly self adhesive centres of the flowers. I added some chit chat stickers and wrote some words in a pink sparkly gel pen around the girl and flowers...the name of the little girl who's bedroom the canvas will soon be in.

Oh Miss Chris - I know you must adore doing this even if you did not tell me. Of all the art work I have seen of yours, your art dolls show absolutely the most love and creativity. The personality of your art dolls have their own sparkle. I don't know how to put it except I find them glorious. About a girl - and her dreams and I love it!
