Hello my lovelies almost forgot to post this, a lovely
Lady from water fit lost her mother  in Sept, she showed
me the card from the funeral home so I asked if I could
keep it and make something with it, so this is what I came
up with..
I colored the canvas with my gelato's first time using them
I colored it then spritz it with water, then inked some sequine

I podged the photo under the doilies  cut it a bit to fit.
the heart theme  is beginning :)..  

Here it is finished..

Red and blue were her favorite colors so that's why these colors.
I folded some torn paper to form a fan inked the blue with red
and red with blue, added some flowers I made,  a blue heart
 that was a  earring, the triangle with the flower also an earring..

Her Mom was a woman of strong faith, and loved her family
a lot so I went with Love, Mom, and crosses one made of hearts,
hearts everywhere. My friend loved it, I was going to hang it
but she want to get a shadow box for it, and that's it..
I did enjoy creating it for her and was glad she liked it..
Thanks so much for visiting my nest and I hope you all have
a wonderful creative week.

Dianne, I am so moved by your lovely tribute to this lady's mother. Her photo shows such a beautiful radiant face and you have framed it with love. The fan is gorgeous! I remember your love of fans. I wish some day you could come and visit my nest and I could take you to my favourite museum of fans! You'd be in Magpie Paradise then! The flowers are so beautifully placed and the colours are lovely. This is such a wonderful way for a friend to remember her dear mum. You have created an heirloom. Julie Ann xxx
