Pinkalicious - Flower Girl

Pinkilicious - Flower Girl
My two groups had Monday challenges this week so I combined them.  Mixed Media Mondays with Tracy Weinzapfel Studios challenged us to use babywipes to paint our pieces ... art aMUSEment with Kelly Hoernig challenged us to use a headline from a newspaper, magazine or book and let it inspire our art this week. 

My piece is based on the "Pinkalicious" children's book series, by Victoria Kann, and is an adaption of her "Pinkalicious:  Flower Girl" book.  Its a darling series and if you've a little one in your life who you enjoy reading to, add it to your shopping list.  :-)

The background was done entirely with acrylic paint and babywipes;  the flower bed is stamped with chalk inks and acrylic paint and iridescent gems; the little flower girl was done with acrylic paint for the stenciled body and more iridescent gems;  her face was done with a home-made flower stamp head painted with acrylic paints and markers . The butterfly was a free design from Free Vintage Digi Stamps that I printed to card stock and cut out.
