Jaime sent me this photo of her, Dillon and Nai Nai on Easter Sunday. It's been about 4 years since I did a frame for her so I thought it was time for an update.
The frame is raw chipboard coated with gesso and then several coats of watercolor. I finished it off with a coating of Crystal Effects (from Stampin' Up! but very much the same as Ranger's Glossy Accents.) I wanted a shiny surface. I just love how the watercolors look. This technique is from Wilna Furstenberg's Art class at Two Peas.
This was a great place to use some Prima flowers - both paper and the resin ones that are a bit sharp for scrapbook pages. The gems are from Kaiser.
The sentiment is a Jewish proverb I found on-line: "God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."
Hopefully I'll have a project to share on that in a few days. In the meantime, I'll have a couple of new pages and videos this week including one using nail polish - but not on your nails.
Thanks for visiting!
