For those of you who may be recent readers of my blog I have a real "Jane's Journal" and a "Daisy's Diary" (for my granddaughter) where I put all my special art journal mixed media "Moments" that I have made over the years. They preserve in time my precious family occasions. The week before our darling grandson Jack was born on 21 April I went down to stay as my daughter had some hospital appointments. As it was a lovely sunny day I asked Daisy if she would like to go out to nearby Hellier's Garden for lunch. We went there earlier this year and saw all the snowdrops and daffodils. For this visit it was all about the blossoms...and how pretty they were.
It was so wonderful to witness the joy of running free as a 3 year old...bless her.
Wherever we go a stick often ends up being befriended 😊
She decided to build a birthday cake using a mole hill, sticks and dandelions ( as you do)
Jack was born 3 days later and I realised that this was our very last Daisy and Nanna outing before his birth. I felt it very important to remember this by making a Moment for her diary. I chose a very apt Visible Image stamp available here
This is what I got up to.
First I added some texture through a vine stencil and stamped and embossed the bottom piece of my Visible Image take the moment stamp.
I worked with these DecoArt mister inks, inspired by the colours of the blossom Daisy and I saw that day.
I sprayed my background,
and added some flowers through a stencil.
Scripted Streets available here
Create it set using Distress oxides and fussy cut them out to layer.
Once I had all my elements ready to put together I made my Moment...here it is.....
with some close ups.......
Such a perfect sentiment
