Fancy Nancy

Happy Friday! Today I want to share a page I created using Sketch #136 from Sketchabilities and Challenge #25 from Scrap Our Stash.

This past summer and fall, Paolina really got into giving me "makeovers". It seemed like almost everyday she was wanting to style my hair and put makeup on me. And when she discovered a series of books about a little girl named Nancy who loves everything super fancy, she then became obsessed with giving me over-the-top hairstyles and adorning my body with every piece of play jewelry in her stash. It's hard to tell from the photograph, but I have about twenty flowers and bows clipped in my hair.

It seemed appropriate to have a "fancy" mixed media layout to display my selfie. I used gesso, modeling paste, gelatos, mists, masks and lots of layers.

Challenge #25 at Scrap Our Stash was to include items from your stash using each letter in the word STAMP. I used...
S - Stencil
T - Tags
A - American Craft Thickers
M - Modeling Paste
P - Patterned Paper

Thanks for looking...oh and if you have a little girl and have never checked out the Fancy Nancy books by Jane O'Connor, I highly recommend that you do so!
