All Dressed Up

There is just something about little girls and the way they stand, the way they gaze into the distance, imagining, discovering, and playing within little wonderlands. Each moment that I can capture of my girls doing this now is so important because they are growing up so fast. I swear, every time that I blink, they are so much older... and they are changing. Soon it won't be wonder-land...

Made for Prima's flower feature today on their blog...

This canvas was prepped with gesso, then I layered on pieces of Nature's Garden paper, and used Shimmerz like crazy to color the background. I then layered her hair with all the delicate Charme Roses from Prima. Ahna's dress was all made up with leaves from the Charme Rose packages...

Thanks so much for popping by!
