I've created this sweet 8"x10" canvas to share with you today
(click on pictures to enlarge and enhance)
Here are some step-outs and product links for you:
I started with an aeronautical chart for my base. (you can get a similar one here
Applied Tim Holtz Distress Paints in "peeled paint", "seedless preserves", and "spiced marmalade". Spritzed the paint with water and moved it around some then dried it.

 



The white rub-ons used are by Basic Gray and the black rub-ons are Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs "words".
My darling girl is made with the Prima Julie Nutting "Riley" Mixed Media Stamp. Stamped once on book paper for the girl and once on a scrapbooking paper by K and Co for her dress with Ranger Archival Ink in "Coffee". I painted her skin lightly with Golden Acrylic Paint in "Titan Buff" and added pink highlights with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Acrylic Paint in "Painterly Pink". Her hair is colored with Faber Castell India Ink Markers and highlighted with Silks Acrylic Glaze in "Ginger Peach".
Stamping was done with Wendy Vecchi's awesome new stamp "Vintage Mesh" and awesome new Archival Ink "Watering Can".  White paint dots are a stamp by Hero Arts with Liquitex acrylic paint. The crocheted butterfly is by Martha Stewart.
Here are the finished edges and back: 


Schweew - that's a lot of product and a lot of layers! 
I hope you think she's sweet - leave me a comment and let me know!


Here are the linkys for the rest of the eP designers in the hop:
