She IS

Hello everyone, this Saturday is our second Art Journal 101 class and it reminded me that I haven't shared this amazing piece of art with you. I  asked Liz ( our Art Journaling teacher) to produce a sample using one of the Donna Downey face stamps.  So Liz thought what better way to showcase her than as a mixed media portrait!

The stamp she chose is "SHE IS" - which she already had in her stash!:
