Create Hope Canvas

I am having the most fun with these little girls..folk girls..I don't know the actual title but they are so fun and whimsical to play with, almost like paper dolls!  This was done about an hour ago..I came home from Mom having a bone scan to see if the dreaded  "C" has reared its ugly head again and also taking flowers to the cemetery for my late husband who passed away 11 years ago today.  So needless to say sooo many emotions just overflowing that I went into my horribly messy craft room and didn't come out until this cardboard canvas was where I wanted it to be.

She is hanging upside down as I feel rather upside down myself!  Background  of gesso, papers, color washes, corrugated cardboard pieces, bottle caps and a cool square thingy, melted crayons around edges and pieces of cardboard, and some washi tape and some markers.  I drew her on the canvas instead of fussy cutting her as I have brave for a moment.  So I am holding on to the words to create hope...stamped in paint from Lost Coast Designs "Doodle Words" in acrylic paint and then doodled of course!

Hang in there even if upside down keep on hanging in there!
