Cowgirl Journal Page

This cute cowgirl looks great out in the desert with the saguaro cactus.  Did you know that it's illegal to cut down a saguaro?  Did you also know that birds build nests in the saguaro?
I used a Gelli printed background and painted the brown desert sand at the base with an acrylic paint marker.  Then I added a thick layer of Glass Beads over the brown, and let it dry overnight.  Since the sentiment refers to stars, I stenciled some in the sky, using two different stencils and two different colors of Distress Ink.  The saguaro is painted with a green acrylic paint marker.  I cut slits by the cowgirl's left arm to insert her lasso.
