"La La Land"
5 x 7 Wood Frame
I've missed you: I feel like I've been out of the loop for so long! I had an almost disaster with my computer which left me lost for quite a while. And when I say "lost," I mean not only lost without the technology (I never really realized how much of my life is in there) but that I also almost lost all of my images from the last 3 years of Kendra growing up . . . . suffice it to say that I dogged a bullet and gratefully, am now up, running and protected. Whew!
In the meantime, I did do a little something for my Mom's birthday that I wanted to share with you:
I took a wooden craft store frame and decided to embellish it. I started by applying 2 coats of gesso before drawing the girl in pencil. Once she was protected with a workable fixative, I colored her in with both acrylic and watercolor paints. She was highlighted with glittery pens (becoming a staple for me ;) and then actual glitter on the interior and sides of the frame:
Martha Stewart glitter on the interior of the frame
And here she is all dressed up with Kendra's second grade school picture:
What more could a grandma want?
Thanks for looking!
