Ficklestick necklace and SheArt Canvas

 This is a necklace I made for my new friend Elena Lai Etcheverry.  I met her at the Orlando Scrapbook Expo. She had on a fabulous necklace and of course there was an instant connection.  We decided to do an art swap keeping our creation secret until we were done and it was in the mail.  This is a fabric wire creation made from the inspiration of Ficklesticks.  
Elena has sent her extraordinary creation to me in the mail.  I can't wait

Title of this piece: 
Clap your Hands
The song "If you are happy and you know it clap your hands. " inspired the name.  Go check out the song and see what the children are wearing and then you will know why this necklace has it's name.

I also added a special treat that she does not even know about.  When I first saw her she was wearing a tiara.  I though now there is a girl after my own heart.  This s a multimedia art canvas, 6x12, that I painted, stamped, stenciled and glued.  I took a class called SheArt. from Christi Tomlinson.  I had such a good time and learned so many new things.  
Title of this piece:
  She always wore a tiara on Friday
That is what the words say on the side of the canvas.
