Thanks for popping in.
Felt the need to express myself in a little canvas today.
Been spending essential time with the kids. Good talks.
Theirs are not my stories to tell, but boy! Have I listened.
And I remember how hard it is growing up, finding your feet in business, making a living.
Do you? Do you recall?
Hats off to my two for making it so far so good –
Especially in New York and San Francisco!
That really is a long long way from home.
So this canvas and the song I have pinned at the bottom are for both Grace and Mark.
Using the blotted piece from our best selling stencil,
Added a crescent moon – some light
and a few hills – or hurdles – with a brush and torn paper.
And with this little stamp we hung the moon.
Then we trimmed the paper, and added registration marks
to centre the circle on the front.
We covered the canvas board with adhesive,
and wrapped the paper around the board.
Added a piece of double-sided adhesive to the back,
…and mounted the piece on the next size canvas board, to frame.
I have always seen a young mother and her daughter in this stamp.
But today I saw the boy, the brother, on the step ladder.
So there we are.
The world is their oyster.
If you have time to listen to this song by Chris Wood, it really IS wonderful. From the parent to the child….
Love & Hugs,
Barb (aka Mum)
