What Happened was...

So today I had a Live Hangout on YouTube. I was a hot mess! LOL! I asked 2 of my buddies to join but only one could tag along.  So who was it? Linda! We had a blast but man oh man, did we have some technical difficulties or what?! AND I was cussing like a sailor! In English and Spanish! I was nervous I tell you! NERVOUS!  We even did a challenge to finish a mixed media tag that we both failed! We were supposed to finish in 15 minutes...um...yeah disaster! But you know what? We had fun and frankly Linda and I needed that. We laughed and from the looks of it our peeps enjoyed themselves. Thank you for all of you who joined in. I really appreciate it! Next time we do one I will post the info here too. Well, here is the video and the finished project.  Hope you like it!

The Sushi Doll image that I used was Yum Yum.  This and a boy version is one that I have for free only if you are participating in my D.T.  I paper pieced her except for her skin and the ice-cream cone.  I used some book paper I got from a R.A.K for her hair that I then colored; I also used it for the ice-cream.   I put Stickles on her hair band and used colored pencils without Gamsol for her hair and ice-cream.  For the dress I used a small scrap of plaid paper. I thought it was perfect!  I also used stamps for the background, which are in the video.  I used Glimmer mist for the blotches you see on the background also.  I finished it with white acrylic paint so it wouldn't look so blah. 

Here is a close up of 'Yum Yum'

The over-all look of my tag. 


Here is  a little side view of it.

In this angle you can see all the Glimmer mist I used.
