Once upon a time there was a little girl named Diana who loved to dress up, especially for Christmas time. Mary was her favorite character to play-her dolly is named Nelly but works in a pinch as the baby Jesus. A couple of years later this same little Diana was asked with her brothers to create a nativity for church during the Sunday meeting. She was VERY excited, they assembled themselves behind the according doors. As soon as the doors were opened and she looked up and saw all of the faces looking at her, she became a ROCK. She literally curled up on the floor and would not look up for ANYTHING. Not even the persistent proding by her loving mother. She couldn't handle all the eyes! (that really DID happen--as you can tell it's been like 30+ years and I can STILL remember!)
Anyway, in this picture I am 3 years old, it's 1976....
1. for the background I used a stencil and painted over it with gesso.
2. I felt like it needed something else so I took my glitter glue and "painted" the center of the circle.
3. I still felt like it needed something, so I took my white mist and painted the background giving it a light color of white.
4. I then sewed it down to the base and roughed up the edges to give it dimension. LOVE it!
*this is the original picture with writing on the back. Instead of adhering it down to the page I used photo corners so I can remove it if I would like...
Thanks SO much for the visit today!!
