This was quite an emotional journey, but very enjoyable. The background pieces are copies of little notes and drawings done by my daughter when young. Whilst they are not visible in the finished piece, I know they are there, and adds extra meaning to the end result.
Background with first coats of paint
Finished Girl 'me'
Canvas size 12"x12"
Top right hand side showing all the texture, rubons, stamping etc
Close up of the top
the shirt was stamped, embossed and then embossed again with a different colour

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the pant leg and coat and then replaced piece once cut to give a bit of dimension
