I may have mucked it up!

I tried to even out the shape of her face and give her a little touch of a smile.

Then I added fruits/florals from some decorative napkins and a bible verse:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

That's an apple on her neck, not a goiter :) I feel her face got a little 'dirty' but I'll try clean that up again tomorrow. The more I futz with it, the more problems I seem to create!
Just in case I ruin it or make it worse, I thought I'd share what I have so far.





I'm off to Dale's for a little romantic evening by the fire pit! I LOVE the weekend!!

I've just found the email you sent me about the nest tutorial in my spam box, so sorry I didn't see it sooner, you must have thought I was ignoring you, sorry Hun!
It has been emailed to you now, hope you have fun with it.

I think it's lovely! I just love the way you get the skin tone to look, and the overall colours are beautiful. I think taking a break and coming back to something is always a good idea, I feel like sometimes I can over work something and it's always good to take a step back and have another look!! heheh and the apple doesn't look like a goiter, heheh.
