Rupunzel Playing

I've had this page on the docket for a while and finally finished it this week. ;D The image is "Rupunzel Playing" from A Day for Daisies and she was so fun to color - just look at all that hair! My kids have been enamored with the movie Tangled so I've been getting my weekly dose on a daily basis. LOL So that's one of the reasons I went with brown hair.

I created this for the "It's a TWINE Thing" challenge at A Day for Daisies and used Baker's twine in three different areas. First is a general wrap around the base then two areas I have used eyelets and threaded the twine in a crossing stitch.

I went to add a lot of texture to her hair but ended up getting a blending effect. I think next time I'll work on the lightest colors and build up to the darkest. However, I was able to create creases in her nightgown without too many problems so I'd still call it a success.

The rest of the page was decorated with gems, dragonflies, brads and chippies. The sentiment stamp is a Kid's Quote from Inkadinkado which are always fun to use. ;D
