I finished her





The previous picture of her was just a crop of the almost finished one but today I worked on her some more. I put some hymn music around the sides and I sprayed the stencils with the air compressor with the copics. I think I will really enjoy adding the stencils to the background. Of course you can get basically the same effect with a stencil and acrylic but there is just something about blowing it on that gives it that really soft look. And if you don't like it you can wipe it off with alcohol and it's gone, baby gone! Ok, now for the drawbacks---but it's just one---the air compressor uses lots of ink so you have to refill which involves ---more cha-ching! I haven't gotten to that point yet but I'm sure I will.
Y'all have a wonderful weekend and oxox to all.

Oh, and I am thinking about adding a tiny quote in type down by her shoulder
Here is the quote ---but I have decided yet whether to do that. Any thoughts?

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."

Hi Martha! She is so beautiful. Such perfect, delicate features, and such a sweet look. I also love how you did the pearls sitting ever so irregular, just like they'd be in real life. The quote you chose is lovely also, however, she's perfect even without it! :)
