Fawn and her freckles. . .

When I was young I always wished that I had freckles.  In fact, in 5th grade there was a boy named John in my class that had about a million freckles and I thought he was the cutest thing ever.  His mom volunteered in our classroom from time to time and John had obviously inherited his freckles from her - I thought she was beautiful.  
Do you LOVE the background of this girl as much as I do??  It is my new Crafters Workshop ECHOES stencil designed by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.  I can't tell you how happy this stencil makes me!!  Just a couple quick squirts with Dylusions ink spray in Fresh Lime and the background is done!! 
Forgot to take any pictures after this first one - too enamored with painting freckles I guess. . .

The stencil and the colour are both amazing... and I used to have more freckles but they have faded as I do the right think and cover up in the sun now... I like it when I get some colour and they show up again... always makes me feel like I have been extra naughty being out in the sun unprotected...xx

Love your little girl! When I was young I had zillions of freckles, I hated them and remember rubbing lemon juice on them to try and bleach them!! How silly! Now I just accept them as part of me. :)
