Lets get Shabby Challenge # 10 Easter


Well this is definately last minute and I hope it is in time.I had a bit of a problem getting the pics as the flash gets rid of some of the detail so at the bottom of the post I am adding a copy taken without flash a bit dark though. Between being sick, starting volunteering at the school ,easter and my own procrastinating... time has been short. This months Challenge at lets get Shabby was Easter. For me Easter is hard because it is a reminder of the last good days we got to spend with my Mom as a family outside of the hospital. My mom passed a few days past Easter four years ago now and it is still a tough time of the year. My original thought was to try and create a project with those pictures but they are not that great and I was totally stumped for ideas so I decided to use one of my favourite easter pics of Belle and work around that. I crackled and inked a frame using Tim holtz crackle and distress inks. I then glued the frame to multiple layers of pattern paper and lace rolling and tearing the edges on each. I added the misc Prima flowers and some petalsoft wires, lace and leaves. For a final easter touch I added one of my mulberry creations. It is a hand made chick with little wire feet. I think he is adorable. I tried to give it that vinatage feel a bit so I hope it worked. thanks for looking and if you are so kind to leave a comment they are greatly appreciated. Have a wonderful day. Angela
