look on the bright side 31

Hi there! Today I have a page to share in my art journal featuring a girl that I painted using a wide variety of beautiful and shimmery ColourArte products including Silks Acrylic Glazes and Twinkling H2o's.
I colored using many colors and layers of Twinkling H2o's:
The background was created using a variety of Silks Acrylic Glazes. Once dry, I randomly stamped images using Stampin' Up stamps from my collection that are more than 10 years old!:
The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker:
I embellished her hair, with a stamped / embossed / die cut butterfly and a flower from my stash:

I joined along with the following challenges: For color inspiration, I took on the ColourQ colour challenge:
I'm also entering my page in the May Mixed Media Place Creative Gym Exercise 8 where the theme is Drawing and I'm linking it to the Art it Friday ~ Show Your Face gallery. 
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

So artistic, Mona! Beautifully painted...remarkable that you can still find a use for SU stamps that are 10 years old! Who would know?

I love your beautiful lady! And, the colors are lovely. Her hair reminds me of how my Mom wore her hair when I was very little - she wore it up in a french roll (or something to that effect). Love your piece.
