Nurturing Nature.

My April creation for

The fabulous thing about having a stash of patterned
papers is the ability to up-cycle past makes.
*That doesn't prevent me adding to the stash though lol*

Saw this little booklet in The Works and had to buy it!
Dug out an old project that had gotten a little battered
(OMG 2014!!!!)
and stripped it back before re painting.
Selected some collage pieces from the booklet...
then remembered a conversation about making my own 
"Paper dolls" from old family photos.
The image of my grandparents holding one of their children
was perfect to add to my "Happiness" altar :D
*inspired by Carrie Schmitt LB2019 wk 07*
Spring is a time of "Nurturing" for me...
a time to "start as you mean to go on"....
encouraging, hugging, and appreciating all the 
blessings in your life :D

Enjoy XXX
