Remembering a special friend

Some of you will know I sadly lost a very special friend and Godmother to Ben at the end of August. I made this page straight after her funeral. She was a fun loving, strong lady who loved her family and friends and would do anything for anyone. We are going to miss her tremendously.

The page started as a 'mop up' piece used on the first page of the book (see here). I had used it for mono-printing and drying off using my trusty media fluid acrylics from DecoArt..

It looked very different by the time it had gone through a series of stamped, painty and stencilled layers.

My friend Linda loved her garden so I decided flowers would be my remembrance piece for her, I used Tim Holtz flower garden stamps, his wildflowers stencil and wildflowers die to create the effects. The stamped flowers were cut and individually painted using media fluid acrylics.

Seth Apter stamps in the background ....

....... various stencils.

And the page is in my Seth Apter style journal.

I would like to enter this into the Anything But Cute 'Friendship' challenge as it was partly inspired by being a Guest Designer for this current theme, but this is a very different style than the vintage clipboard I made for it. You can see that here if you missed it.

Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by.
