Happy Birthday Helen

It's my Twitter friend Helens birthday today and we actually met earlier this year when Emma and I went to Ally Pally


I know the 'lonely girl' image by Dina Wakley is one of her faves, so I decided to use this along with fresco paints in shades of blues and browns to decorate this mdf plaque as a birthday gift for her.

I am also entering it into the Hobby House Challenge as their theme is anything goes and also Our Creative Corner using the recipe
  • List A - Ribbon 
  • List B - MDF/Wood
  • List C - Paint and Ink
And PanPastelUK are asking to see loads a layers, well loads were used to build up this background!!

I always love it when you play with this image Sam! Great background and love the colours too. If your friend doesn't like it, I can find a home for it (teehee!!).
Thanks so much for joining us at Our Creative Corner for this challenge. Juliaxx

Well as I'm late with my comment I already know Helen loves her plaque, lol! Now I've seen it I'm not surprised Sam. I can see why she loves Lonely Girl and the background you have created is fabulous.
