Birds in nest in hair. I cut up a bird's nest I bought and punched out the birds from cardstock (cant remember the punch - maybe Stampin Up?) and dyed them to the colour I wanted and then added a little of the red paint to the nest, along with a little white and added eyes to the birds
this is the very bottom of the 24x12 canvas which is the second part to the overall wording
Close up of the skirt which was created by using rolled up pages from a very old Thesauras, which were then dyed, stained and painted and then I added strips of white tulle in between the pages
Close up of the waist. The frill and waist band were cut from a very large flower from a continuous strip of netting. The 'frill' was from the petals of one of the flowers and the waist band was a section of the stamens on the flower. Then topped with a Prima pearl embellishment to match the colour theme
View of the top and waist after I had added rub-ons, and shading to the skin tones
view of the top, crazy hair (which I love) and the bird's nest
Side view of the canvas and the skirt
The edges of the canvas are strips of Tim Holtz' patterned tissue paper which was added to the canvas and then dyed with Distress stain. A little splash of the distress stain covered the blue paint on the canvas as well, along with some stamping
Close up of the skirt and heart
Close up of a section of the top, waist and top of the skirt

Full wording reads: 'The whole wide wonderful world is at your fingertips,
