she enjoyed the simple things - mixed media canvas

 Hello - hope you are all going well.  I'm sharing a mixed media canvas that I've been working on - it's been such a long time since I've done one of these.  I enjoyed making this one so much, especially using the Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamps - these are gorgeous and available at The Scrapbook Store!!
 Most of the papers are from my stash which include some of the She Art line by Pink Paislee - really love the bright colours in this collection.
Here are some close-up's:

 ... I stamped the doll stamp onto some bookprint paper and then paper-pieced with some of the pattern papers.  Added some colour to the skin and hair using watercolour crayon and paint ...

I love how this one turned out and it reminded me why I enjoyed doing these mixed media piece and ...... yes, I should do more ☺  Just to find the time in between everything else ☺
