My Tammy - quick painting

 
I drew my darling Tammy for a junk journel Challenge on Facebook. I found a photo of Tammy from Christmas 1985 she was holding an empty packet of chocolate fingers, which she must have happily retrieved from somewhere! I remember that we only ever used to have chocolate fingers at Christmas.

I sketched Tammy in pencil and then used my pastels to colour her. I was determined to do this all quickly  as I know I would just keep going until I thought it was good enough, but that would never happen ! 

I think I may add some words to the picture I am not sure.....

Thank you for visiting .

Tammy

 

My beloved Golden Retievers name was Tammy, her kennel club name was Tamara Anwen.Tammy was born in Wales and Anwen means very beautiful, which she was. Of course Tammy is also a song famously sung by Debbie Reynolds in the Tammy films.

I printed the music onto some canvas paper and heat embossed some heart balloons and the word Love, in a marbling pink embossing powder. Tammy used to love ballooons and she could hold them in her mouth without bursting them! I edged the paper with pink and brown inks.

 

Both the Dog and Angel are wooden stamps and must be well over 10 years old! I stamped the wings on vellum and embossed them with white embossing powder, and fussy cut both the wings and doggie.I watercoloured the doggie.

I sat Tammy on some white net and added lots of beads and sequins onto the netting and background. 
I adhered a strip of fabric lace at the bottom and rolled up some of the lace to form a flower, and popped a little pink button in the middle.

Thank you so much for visiting.

I would love to enter this into the following challenges.
