SUMMERTIME! IF-Unfold

Isn't she Lil Miss Patriotic! I had sketched this out a couple of days ago and decided to paint her up this morning since I woke up at THE CRACK OF DAWN! I wish I could sleep in a bit on the weekends.


I'm trying to think of HOW this could be used for Illustration Friday's word~ Unfold. I don't think it can?

****Thank you Silke for your suggestion!***
AS SHE HELD THE LITTLE SPARKLER IN HER HAND, SHE FELT THE MAGIC UNFOLD


She's holding a sparkler shooting sparkling glitter. She was fun to do!
Happy Saturday everyone!

She's wonderful! I think you could use her. Just say something like: "As she held her beautiful sparkler, she felt the magic unfold." :) Silke
