In The Garden at Live and Love Crafts

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Live and Love Crafts, our theme this month is 'In The Garden'.

I know at first sight this doesn't scream In The Garden, but there is a story behind it. As soon as I saw Mom and Me at Tiddly Inks it reminded me so much of my daughter and me. Her birthday is on 22nd June, and I wanted to make her a framed creation for her wall for her 8th birthday. I have told her this hundreds of times, when we were on holiday in Cornwall, she had just turned 1, and when we were in the garden of the cottage she told me, for the first time with it not being a reply, that she loved me. So, this image takes me straight back to being in that garden.

The frame is from Ikea, and it's only a fiver, and frames cards beautifully. This is slightly larger than a card and does look great in the frame. This is the first image I have coloured with my Prismacolor Pencils, using a pencil belender, I love the depth of the colours that they give.

Thanks for popping by,

  4. Oh this is so beautiful Becky as is the story behind it! What a wonderful reminder of that day for you both. It's a lovely image and the pencils do give it an altogether different look from the inks, very rich colours. The frame looks great, I'll have to get to Ikea one day. Debra x
