Not all who wander...

For my project this month I dusted off a canvas I had bought and not used - I do seem to collect supplies that I hoard instead of using!
I sprayed the canvas with Black Marble ink and then sprayed water through a make to create the diamonds. I didn't want them to be perfect so I let the water seep a little on the canvas before drying them. The edges were rubbed with Potting Soil Archival Ink
The little girl is a Tim Holtz stamp (from the set Winged Things 1) that I've had for ages. I stamped her twice - once for the main image and the second one for the wings, crown and words on her skirt and added a little blue ink. I added music Tissue Wrap adhered to some card, some metal trim and a little lace and a sentiment. I put some of the left over metal trim in the top corner with a little Idea-Ology. The whole project took no time at all (well, time does fly when we're crafting doesn't it?!) and you could use any image you choose - I know lots of people like to use digis and I'm sure they'd look nice on this too!
