Several of the girls at Artsy Fartsy have been doing online canvas classes, my friend Lisa included. So while I visited her this weekend she walked me through making this one. It was so much fun! Of course she had to have long black hair just like me. :)
Anyway - the canvas was inspired by this song, particularly the sentiment. I imagine she rips the wings from a butterfly to take flight...
The bird and the birdcage are actually from the new line of tissue paper by 7gypsies. I just outlined them.
The butterfly wings are by Tim Holtz.
