This is a special She Art I did for a friend of mine.  She has been through so much this past 18 months and I wanted her to always remember to find her joy in the midst of pain.  I think the piece speaks for itself.  I found the word JOY, it was someone's special give away for Christmas and I didn't save the link.  Sorry!  I started by painting the background a solid color, then started layering.  The doily was white and I painted it before laying it down.

Plenty of writing, doodles, stamping and outlining.

A few special things here....a paint on pearls, a cluster of cherries at the waist, the word love that just happened to be on the pages I used for her body.
 Layering here with paint and some stamped images.

Flowers are punched out and layered to look like a full daisy.  Leaves are left overs from the flowers I made for prom and Mother's Day.
ALWAYS let your layers dry before starting another!!  Mod Podge can be your friend!!!
