The little girl images were my starting point and I painted them using my wonderful Claudine Hellmuth brushes (that I purchased at the Ranger warehouse sale last fall!) and set them aside. The street scene started with the Green Paper center church piece and then added other buildings from a freebie from Tartx, along with some black details. Attached them to a background and added the sweet postcard from a prize package I won over at Bella Creations. Note the spelling of America (Amerika). Watercolored a flowery water scene over top of everything. The girls, stamp and the goldfinches were applied next. I painted a pretty sky and layered the whole thing. Just a tiny bit of bling with the gold german scrap around the edge. Interesting enough, with the painting, I felt I didn't need to add any rhinestones or other bling.
Hope you like my new combination experiment.
