Beauty and the … Stick Bot???

This was my challenge image over at Cute As A Button’s Progressive Challenge for March…. I was running late after a fun month of craziness and then my 5 year old decided that my picture was lacking a little something something.. enter the stick bot.  Apparently he thinks that we needed a Stick bot in it.. so here she is .. this is Flamenco Dancer and Stickbot.

You can find Flamenco Dancer in the Cute As A Button store This was done on Canson Mix Media with  Gansia Tambi watercolors and a touch of Crayola Color Escapes pencil. I added a double layer photo mat  and she’ll most likely wing her way into the Abandoned Art bucket we are filling up for our great adventure next month.
