Mix It Monthly - 2nd Canvas - Graphic pattern and Children

I did this canvas just for fun but realized that it would fit into the Mix It Monthly theme also because it has the correct colors and it has graphic pattern in the woman's dress. I found this picture in a magazine and just adored the sweetness of it and wanted to paint it. I did the dress of the woman in white and then did a stencil with lace over the white to give it the pattern. I wanted the woman to look like a bride. The little girl is just so cute! The canvas is mixed media. There are old book pages and writing underneath but you really don't see them unless you know they are there. The painting is water colors and acrylics. I named the painting "Flower Girls".
So here is my 2nd painting for the month! Wow! Didn't know I had it in me!
