You Live, You Learn . . . Keeper of Life

 Finally a little time to doodle and paint with
DecoArt Media Line
Please meet
" The Keeper Of Life "
It all started with a doodle . . . 
. . . straggly hair with eyes that saw everything . . .
 . . . at this point I set her aside, waiting to find out who she is!
Then I got carried away and did this . . . eeeek . . . nope she wasn`t having any of it and I wish I had taken pics of the rest of the process . . .BUT . . . yes I got carried away . . . I am truly sorry!
 I did use Old Book pages, pretty scraps of paper, Matte Medium, Gesso with lots of . . .
DecoArt Fluid Acrylics, Misters and my trusty doodle doo pen!
Adding a beautiful quote I found online over at Pinterest, scribbling it over her dress and the odd word added to the background.
Here`s the quote
{ Author Unknown }
You Fall, You rise,
you make mistakes, you live you learn.
Your Human, not perfect.
You`ve been hurt but your Alive.
Think of what a precious privilige it is to be alive -
to breathe, to think, to enjoy and to
choose the things you love.
Sometimes there is sadness in our journey,
but there is always lots of beauty.
We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt,
for we will never know just what is waiting for us just around the bend.
 Thank you so much for stopping by
Till next time
Big hugs

I love my mechanical pencils . . .
Using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics by Andy Skinner to colour and shade . . .
By this point she was starting to tell me who she was { do your doodles talk to you ? }
Layering up paints . . .
. . . doodling with a Signo Uniball white pen
" Just close your eyes . . . feel the magic that`s around you, surrounding you with love"
. . . creating the wings, layering . . .

I`m hoping to have her finished over the weekend, still dithering what I`m going to do.
Will be heading to my lottie to tend the veg and fruit and do my dithering while I tootle away . . . finding inspiration.
