A Timely Reminder...

...not that this lady LOOKS like she's got anything to do with time! Except she is old - Edwardian, I'd guess...& she was on some paper I got from the etsy shop....& I fell in love with her. So I've made a simple canvas to hang on my wall! 
Here she is in original form:
 I've fussy cut her out & chose some 'vintage' looking bg paper...when I was a kid I ADORED paper dolls, & I guess I 'dressed' my lady up a little like that for this project. Here's the finished result:
Oooh! I had fun - added some pretty flowers to her hat:
Gave here a glitzy diamante necklace with a fairy & a key trinket attached:
And of course, some LOVELY blooms - just touched at the edges with some paint. Because I had to trim her down, I 'lost' the edge of her hat & shoulders...so, I added stamping & some masking around those edges so they sort of 'faded' away & it didn't look too disjointed:

And of course, I also painted, stamped, then added a little gold to the edges as well.
And best of all. The quote. Now the 'time' thing might make sense!! LOOOVE Kahlil Gibran - have since I was a teenager:)
Hope you enjoyed looking at this one - check out the ZEUS & ZOE store for the sorts of goodies - papers, charms, flowers & trims - that you can see I've used here:):)
And happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
