Last sunday was the surprise party for my parents and it went better than expected. Everybody that was invited and RSVP'ed came. And they were all on time! The party was held in a venue near by my parents house so I could get them on foot. My parents were very curious what I'd planned for them, and when they arrived and saw almost the whole family of both sides, they were gobsmacked. I was so happy to see that! Everyone started to clap when they arrived and even started to sing. My father had tears in his eyes. Everybody had a good time. So happy that I did it, it was a very successful day!
Anyway, now back to business :). A Mother's day tag. My mom's bithday is always around Mother's day, and so we never celebrate Mother's Day and her birthday seperately. But this is a good time for making a Mother's Day tag. With this tag I participate with 3 challenges.
- Compendium of Curiosities (Marbled Stains technique from the book Compendium of Curiosities 2, which is sponsored by www.eclecticpaperie.com)
- Our Creative Corner (Recipe Mother's day card, brads, watercoloring, embossing, ribbon)
- Inspiration Journal (Water coloring)
In the beginning the marbled backgrounds look horrible. At least mine do. And is very hard to see if it can become something beautiful. So I layer some more and work some more. Then I can see if it's good or not. And this one turned out quite nice. I water colored the butterfly with distress markers and a waterbrush. Love to water color with those. I know my mom will love it!
Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
