The Dusty Attic - March

I’m entering the Dusty Attic Challenge this month with this LO. I’ve used a lovely Long Stem Flower DA chip that’s been watercolored. From the mood board I used the splashes as well as the pinks and purples. The title is from a Bruno Mars song because this LO is of my niece, Lenora, who likes him a LOT. I also made this LO of her because she’s no longer the little girl in the photo. She’s now a grown and hopeful college girl and I admire her so much for how beautiful she is inside and out. She’s a strong woman with her feet firmly planted on the ground and a vibrant and humble soul who has overcome so much to earn everything she has. She takes nothing for granted and her faith and perseverance are the reason I look up to her.

going up? - W & P February

Here’s a LO of my son Emilio as a younger boy at the ruins of Teotihuacán outside of Mexico City. I’m entering the “Embrace the Past” Challenge at Words & Paintery with this. My son was mystified and excited to visit this part of his heritage (from way, way back). Climbing the pyramids was one of the most exciting parts of the visit to this magical place.

...a couple of close-ups...

And here's the fresh and citrusy moodboard at Words & Paintery.

Thanks for stopping by!
