New Mixed Media Piece
So the other day my daughters teacher called with a special project request and only four days to do it. She would soon be traveling with her family to Florida for her grandparents 40th wedding anniversary. The family was making an album of family events, memories and photos for them. The teacher wanted something special and different for the cover and asked if I could come up with anything. I quickly brainstormed and came up with an idea. I picked up some photos, an album page and gathered any special information that would make it unique to them. I cut out some masonite and drilled holes and then went to work. The mixed media covers were filled with photos and clippings, I used things that had special meaning, including painting on some orchids that were in her bouquet. This project was so fun to do and was very nice to be included in this special memory. Here are some pictures.
p.s. I have a photo of the lovely couple holding the album will try to get it on too, later.
