I am back today with a canvas that I made for the January Scrap Around the World Challenge.
This is the super mood board.
Here is the canvas I created.
I was inspired by the shabby chic look of the mood board, as well as the sentiment - Life is a Balance of Holding on and Letting Go.
This canvas is of my niece, who was obviously 13 and it was her Grade 7 Farewell. She is still a child, but yet a developing young women. So yes, that in between phase of sometimes a child and sometimes a young woman...and also that balance of wanting to keep her in childhood, but also wanting to let her grow into womanhood! Not always an easy one. But she is lovely young lady and has started high school this year.
I used the beautiful BoBunny The Avenues collection and is still one of my favourites.
The leafy chipboards are Blue Fern studios and I did a mix of inking and heat embossing on the leaves.
I used BoBunny stickable stencils and gesso for the background, along with denim colour watercolouring.
She is such a gorgeous young lady! Sometimes I wish I was 13 again! LOL
Anyways...thanks for stopping by!
Have a super evening!
