she danced as if no-one were watching

Hi! You may recall this abstract mixed media canvas I made back in November. Details of how I made it are HERE.

Well, I didn't like the abstract-ness of it and it had a disco type vibe to me, so I turned it around and added a girl and a few rub-ons to it. Oh, and turned it into a book.

The girl was created with a Dylusions Couture Collection Stencil ~ Flossie. I built her up in layers, so created a base layer from the stencil, then added the legs, hands and head with book paper and then the dress from a scrap of embossed white card I had.

I added some feathers to create a hat and some gems and rub-ons to decorate the dress. There are swirl rub-ons around her, to create movement.

I printed out the sentiment and distressed it with the same colour gelatos that I had used to create the background canvas.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
