Another SheArt girl -- this one has a wild side!

I'd like to introduce you to my second SheArt girl!  I wanted to try something completely different from my first girl, so I thought I'd experiment with creating animal prints.  I used book paper as the base and added strips of black paper to make zebra stripes.  I also painted patches of gold and painted on markings for leopard print.  I tried to create a giraffe print with modeling paste, but that was a total disaster and I scraped it off (twice). :)  These girls are so fun to make -- I am loving just letting my creativity run wild (pun totally intended).

I found a chipboard binder in my "big bin of stuff to be altered" and I think it will be perfect to hold all my mixed media experiments while I take this class.  I can't wait to fill it up and see all the ideas in my head come to life!  The book is from Maya Road, I think.  That patterned paper and stamps used above are from Fancy Pants.  I also used my iRock to set the little rhinestones on her hairpiece and bracelet (which are made from scraps of fake leather vinyl and did not play well with the iRock -- live and learn!).  I think my favorite part of this girl is the tulle peeking out from the bottom of her skirt and at her neckline.  So fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous girl, love it, love her hair and the clothing you've given her. Great patterns in the background, really clever :)
