hello there.. i am here today to show you a layout / shadowbox i did using Art Anthology Sorbets and colorations along with a few pieces of Tim’s paper stash wallflower (http://www NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.com/TH93110 NULL.HTML) thrown in there. i think the robin was made for me !!!!
there is a short video (less than 5 minutes) for you to take a boo at over on the Art Anthology YouTube page ( you can find the link here (http://wp NULL.me/p4DD9n-14N)) to show you how long it takes me to do a layout!! (HOURS!!)
i am linking this posting up to
Simon Says Stamp (http://www NULL.simonsaysstampblog NULL.com/mondaychallenge/) Monday challenge this week, using white in any way. i used a black and WHITE picture as well as whitespace, yes for me that is white space!.
there are a lot of symbols in this piece for me. i created it based off my thoughts/feelings/emotions when i happened to snap this picture of my son cleaning off one of my mom’s grave markers during a recent trip up to visit her and my Nanny.
i learned of my mom’s passing on a really late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. i truly believe she comes back to let me know all is okay through a robin. there are three feathers to symbolize that she is with her Dad and her brother Blaine…they truly were birds of a feather. there are 4 eggs to symbolize us, her children, the 11 and 18 are the birth numbers of both her and my son. there are 6 and 49 letters as the last thing i remember being told what she was doing was going to get a paper and pen to write down the logo 6/49 numbers after returning home from playing bingo with my Nanny, her mom.

this by far is one of my most treasured layouts. in the tag tucked in behind at the top is a little message. thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget that it is the little things that make a big difference. write on those layouts/projects….even if you have bad penmanship. the journalling is probably more important than anything else to those who will treasure your art.
