First crafty meet up of 2012 - something a bit different for me...

Had our first meet up of the year yesterday, and this time we actually finished a project :)

This was a bit out of my usual style, no grungy inked edges and a bit girly but I'm really pleased how it turned out.  These were inspired by Christy Tomlinson's SheArt Girls.

We stuck vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, tissue tape to canvas, used acrylic paint with natural sponges, stencils, sprays, texture paint and patterned papers to make our girls.  I think I might make another...

Yas's bright idea to take show Sam's in the mirror :)

Oops, didn't realise I wasn't holding mine straight - I blame Yas :)
