And speaking of spring, here in Los Angeles, we only have two seasons: fall and summer. While most of you in the country are enjoying springtime, we are feeling the warmth of summer -- well, it seems like it with 80' weather and a sunburn from a two-mile power walk on the beach! Well, with the new season, I thought it was time for a new look -- not for me, for my blog (although I could use one, too!). I took advantage of Elysa's PhotoShop knowledge, and she helped me create a new blog header! And with a new look, comes a new project: Here are photos of the altered canvas I made for my Mom.
8" x 8" and 8" x 4" canvasses tied together with ribbon;
each canvas painted and then decoupaged with designer papers;
Yes, that's really me, minutes after I was born.
Note the year: 1956
(Ahhhhh! Am I THAT old?)
Scrabble tiles spell out "DAUGHTERS"
Chipboard used to spell "LOVE"
Further embellishments: chipboard scroll, button and
silver heart charm tied to "E"
Then added ribbon, brads and flower
Finally, current year of bottom photo: 2010
I had so much fun creating this wall hanging canvas for my Mom.
With Mother's Day coming up, I think my Mom will be quite pleased with her new artwork.
[Editor's Note: It is now 2013, and my Mom requested an updated photo of my daughters & me.
Well, mostly a new pic of my daughters...]
