Brick By Boring Brick

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.
