  It's time for a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the optional twist is:  Wheels!  Wow, there are lots of ways one can use wheels!  

I've chosen a wagon wheel for my project; I thought it would be the perfect western icon for this lovely PRE-COLORED cowgirl from Gecko Galz!  This Rodeo Queen is quite lovely, but I have to say I'm more taken by her horse!  He has such beautiful, soft eyes!  Looks like a Western Pleasure mount to me...or possibly even English Pleasure!  hee hee

I framed them out with some rustic flowers and added a few little blue gems!

  5. Beautiful western style design. I like how you placed the image in one corner and not in the centre, which I tend to do. It also allowed you to find the perfect spot for the wheel. Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational.
