Your time to shine


Happy Friday! I'm back with the comfortable acrylics and watercolours, so much easier. This is in remembrance of my Granny. She didn't come from a wealthy family, went through hardships during WW2, raised 10 children and worked hard all her life. She was loving and caring and had always time to give a little something, a peak at the cheek or a handful of sun warm raspberries or taking a few dance steps to the radio music whilst taking care of the dishes. A most remarkable and respectful woman. 

Time for:
Materials used:
DQWV card stock, torn Origami paper triangels, Liquitex gesso and gel medium, Tilda yellow acrylic colour,
Tim Holtz stencil, Derwent charcoal, watercolour, pastel and inktense pens, Liquitex acrylic pens and new black fine drawing pens... I need to check the make of them.
Papermania heart image stamped with Faded Jeans Distress ink.

Thank you so much for visiting, it means the world! I  hope you'll have a wonderful weekend. We're having a 50th Birthday to celebrate, so hopefully I'm in chance to take a few dance steps too :)

Love and warm hugs
Maarit

  10. Such a sweet piece and your grandmother sounds amazing. It's sounds like your are describing my daughters mother in law...she is exactly like that, having raised ten kids too! Oh and it takes a special woman to raise that many children too and have them turn out as sweet and special as my son in law!!
