sweet mommy, sheila. never complains, never gets frazzeled, always loving to her babies......miss organization!
this piece was created in an altered book i am making for my new grandsons. look below for other pages. i started with a photo of mom and baby and a pencil drawing on the page of shapes. once the photo (talen with a digital camera and altered with Picasa, was glued onto the page then i painted over sections of the page and photo with acrylics. after collaging other papers onto the page i set it aside to dry. once dry i attacked it fine tip sharpie marker....writing little messages and supplying some design lines. when complete i went back and painted over the edges of the various shapes to blend a little where colors came together. i also spattered just a little. pages were stapled together for strength! the theme for this books has been birth, birds, new life, eggs, babies and beginnings. thus the egg shapes:)
