Mix a little water in some Colour Spray  - mocha (watered down) add a little Shimmer dust  - velvet to the Colour Spray  - mocha (watered down as before), paint in the hat using this mix.  Allow to dry.  Use water colours or scribble sticks to colour the face and hair.

Place the paper doll shape on the Living 12x12 scrapbook paper trace around the body shape then cut out and adhere to the front of the paper doll.

For the dress add Shimmer dust  - lush and cobalt to Colour Spray  - mocha (watered down as before), with a paint brush drizzle the shimmer mix over the dress shape and the collar.

Fussy cut the floral section from the Spice 12x12 scrapbook paper then adhere this to the Festival 12x12 scrapbook paper.  Add stencilling over the background Garden poem A6 stencil and Garden poem A6 stencil apply black archival ink through the stencils randomly over the page.

Add some stamping over the body shape using the chain stamp from the Limited Edition clear stamp set and the Scripted A5 stencil  .  Add some wording (washi tape in this project) to the page.  Adhere the wings to the shoulders.  Adhere the paper doll to the background sheet, bottom of shape tucked in at the bottom under the floral cut out shape (Spice 12x12 scrapbook paper).
