Live with passion
This page started out with a gelli print that wasn't doing it for me, but after I added this face stencil (this was while playing with my new stencils) it blew me away. She reminded me of a Spanish flamengo danser, wich fitted in perfect with this forthnigth's Q&L challenge word passion. I didn't add much more to it, just made her lips red and added a red glittery hair accessoire. Then came the dilemma on how and where to add the quote, finally I decided to make a frame around the picture and add the quote on the edge as if it were the title of a painting. The frame took me some time: deciding the color, the size and then came the even harder bit: the measuring.
Me and my husband like it so much we will give this a prominent place in our hallway.
This also solves my problem on how to incorporate it in my quotes book (which I will be making at the end of the year) as this is not the same size as the other pages, but is much bigger.
