Meet Eliza Blue and Rose

When she was blue, she dreamed of happiness and love in the arms of her soulmate.

My 20 year old son suggested she have blue hair, he was just teasing me at the time and not serious at all - won't he be surprised!!! My husband says she can't have blue, I replied that many of my arty friends who like to draw girls often give them different coloured hair.

So the challenge is on - different coloured hair and different styles of hair and I'll be using a smaller colour palette, colour themes, crazy hair and song lyrics too.  My girls need words but the words are just not coming to me - Eliza Blue's background doesn't really allow for words as it's too busy and she has words from scrapbooking paper showing through - which is where I got the first sentence from.

Here's my previous girl aka Girl2 but now known as Rose - she has been finished off and framed though her background does allow for more stamping or words:

Now I just need to decide on a name for my other girl... Does she look like a Tara???

I will create a few more girls this month....

Today I handed over my 30 canvases for the 30x30x30 Challenge organisers to store until the exhibition in mid September.  :D
