Shelter Yourself

It's time for
over at 
and our sponsor is once again the fabulous

I wanted to get away from card making again
as we often forget to use digi images in other kinds of project.
This is a clearance item...mdf 11 and a half inch square panel
(one of my 25p per item haul)
 I keyed the surface with sandpaper before gluing a sheet of 12x12 
scrapbook paper on to it.
 I just Luuuuurve the Birch tree papers...
 I tore strips with trees on to use as....trees lol
The image I received from or sponsor is
and the beauty of digi images is that 
you can print them as big as you need :D
 I coloured her with promarkers 
and tore her (and the butterflies) out.
 She looked like she was floating, so I used 
mesh ribbon to create a horizontal stripe to ground her.
I added  another stripe of blue mesh
 and grey lace to the top edge for balance.
 She still looked a bit "floaty" so I coloured a few 
paper flowers for her to sit amongst.
 When I showed it to my teen...he said the piece reminded him
 of a short animation he had recently seen called "Shelter"
and so the legend was created.
 She does look a little sad even though surrounded by such beauty...
(Watch the's so sad yet so beautiful)

Enjoy :D XXX
