I'm so happy to present this 'framed' photo of my wonderful Mother-In-Law at about age 11.
She was so very kind to me and loving; and we were so sorry to loose her two years ago.
I created this 9"X5" frame with a base layer of brown corrugated cardboard, then several layers of linen and laces. The pale pink & green background is a journal card from Bo Bunny papers. Fancy corner punch was used on the photo~
I like to use the edges of handkerchiefs, and included some beads, buttons and a twill tape bow~ there are a few twirls of tulle and a soft lace rose in the top corner.
I miss her deeply! But when I look at my granddaughter, now age 12, I see 'Barbara Ann' so much! (They look like twins really : ) She was a delightful wonderful person and very missed by all of us~
I plan to enter this photo of Barbara Ann in to AppleApricot's Linky Party ( > ) SIMPLY NEUTRALS TUESDAY!
Lots of vintage loveliness there! and I'm sure you'll enjoy stopping in each week to see some truly beautiful 'neutral' (color based) contributions.
How is the early edges of Autumn treating you!? It is beautiful here in Colorado. The colors are in full bloom and the air is crisp during the day now~ My heater is kicking on during the nite! Brrr....
This is a birthday card I made quite some time ago. I used several layers of (>click) Maja Design papers - 'Walking In The Forest' I made a few rolls of paper and tied them together with some twine; run thru an eyelet.
I stamped the 'postal' designs, did some machine sewing along the right edge, punched a butterfly to grace the top, and included a few home-made little flowers and beads and glitter in the bottom corner~
There's also some checkered ribbon, a knot of rust colored seam binding and some raffia here & there.
Thanks so very much! I always appreciate any who stop in to take a peek!
I hope you have a wonderful and creative day~ For me, working a full-time job : / I am usually restricted to crafting during evenings and week-ends. But even more so then that, I am of late restricted by my 'mojo' !!! I want so much to create : ) but it just isn't always there. I can say though, that in lately starting to blog, I am INSPIRED BY YOU!! and enjoy stealing away (during the day @ work) on breaks and lunch to visit around and see what you are up to and enjoy your encouragement!
Have a wonderful week!!
