Unconditional Love

This week's catalytst at Creative Therapy #55 is: Tell us about a time you felt unconditional love for someone or something. Of course, for me, that would be my love for Emma, my daughter.

I took a Maya Road chipboard album and layered paint, stamping, masking, charcoal and collaged hearts and simple phrases to talk about my love for her.











Just wanted to share something that I am really excited about. I have dreamed of having a technique/challenge blog of my own to share and teach mixed media techniques for scrappers wanting to go to the next step in that direction. And it is starting to come together!! So be watching for more news!!
Hope you had a great week and I'll be by to see you in blogland soon. ;)

  19. This is soooooo beautiful. My daughter has been bugging me for years to do a painting for her (I do acrylics) and this is the year I'm going to do it. I'm going to collage photos of her growing up, into the painting. I'm not sure if I should do a photo transfer with Golden's gel, or colour copy. The idea is to gesso over portions of the photos. What do you suggest? Oh, I just e-mail subscribed.
