ARTastic MAY 2016 challenge - Girls Only!

Since it's Mother's Day month in Australia the 
CRITERIA is  GIRLS ONLY at ARTastic this month.
And this is the lovely art inspiration
picture by John Maitland for you to use:
For this challenge, I thought the girls looked like they were 'puppets
on a string'.....& I took that further, interpreting them as a banner.....
I also used the colours, especially focusing on the touch of black:
 Washi, lots of Gelato work in the background, then a black mist over
a doily stencil.
My journaling:
 I really like these word cards from Studiofourteen40:
 Another one tucked in with some more string:
 The whole LO:
This is such a gorgeous art picture to work with....
& of course, I LOVE scrapping my step grand girls!!!
Hope you've got some girl photos that need scrapping
for our ARTastic challenge this month!
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
