This piece was alot of fun to do. The phototransfer is my favorite type, done with matte medium. The fabric was painted with a watered down pebeo in cobalt. The child is a freebie sent to me via Artella. The beads are a tiny leftover bit from trim we no longer sell at G Street (but we have lots of others). The words at the left are "she had great hope for the future", and the word hope is a rubber stamp I carved by hand. Enjoy! (I surely did.)

Wonderful piece Kim, doing gel medium transfers is something I'd like to do more of. The look you get with them is so pleasing. I took LRiley's class several years back and really enjoyed it. I am SO impressed that you carved a word stamp. I've tried my hand at a little stamp carving but have never brave enough to go for text! The beads really finish the piece beautiflly!
