i’ve been playing along with magenta’s 20th anniversary monthly challenges and created this for the december theme of My Most Cherished Memory (of the last 20 years). choosing one memory was very difficult; art was a big part of my childhood, as it was for both of my children, although it stayed with them well into adulthood. when i returned to my childhood love of colouring, my children encouraged me so i have a lot of memories surrounding art – this will stay on the mini easel on my desk.
i love creating my own backgrounds with watercolour paper and distress inks and stains; you can find some beautiful backgrounds and a tutorial at shirley’s blog, paper creations by shirley. thanks for popping by.
