Girl Power at Ike's World Challenge Blog

What an empowering month this is for women everywhere. To celebrate, the challenge this fortnight at Ike's World Challenge blog is Girl Power. Whether you are or know someone who fought breast cancer; whether you own your own business or work alongside others; whether you're married, single or in a relationship; we are women, hear us ROAR!
Empowering women, however, needs to start when girls are young. Now our daughters and granddaughters face cyber-bullying and body-shaming that, when done through the internet, reaches well past the school she attends or the community in which she lives. This issue was the inspiration for my mixed media canvas today. Each and every one of us is unique. We each have value in this world, and should not be judged by how we look.
I used an Ike's Art image called "Do Your Thing." Using patterned papers, acrylic pint and ink to build my background, I colored my image with Copics and chose the sentiment to make my point that everyone has faults. Nobody is perfect, and you know what they say, "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."
The challenge has one more week to it, so let's get crafty. And don't forget to link up your project at Ike's World Challenge blog for your chance to win free digis! See you there!
