MONDAY PHOTO OF THE WEEK

So for this weeks photo of the week I thought I would show you some progress pics of the mixed media painting I have been working on for my friends baby shower.

I actually had know idea what I was going to do when I sat down to do this. I only knew that it was for a babies room and that I would be using pink and white. I started by gluing down some different types of overlapping card stock in the middle of the piece leaving a border.

After I painted the background and added some stamps, I drew a lady off center and decided she would look nice with a bubba in her arms


I then painted the border (leaving it slightly raggedy), and cut out some card stock into circles and added them around the border


I then added the words - "You rose into my life like a promised sunrise, brightening my days with the light in your eyes"


I am happy with how it turned out. I just hope my friend likes it.

OH....it's BEAUTIFUL! What a perfect gift for a new Mum! I love the effect of the background and border...great job, Shell!

The little baby looks so peaceful and sweet...

It's so interesting to me how it begins... the colours and stamping and then... adding the details... love seeing progressions..... probably because I deal with the same sort of thing with my dolls. Although with the latest...not much is happening except a gathering and making up of parts....I hope soon I can put something ...anything!! ..together.
