Back At It...

... I was in Long Beach all last week spending precious time with my friend and caring for her & her husband. I cooked for them and kept them company. It is difficult seeing people I love dearly going through such a difficult time. I loved being with them and feel very blessed that I can pack up and go whenever they need me.
While I was there a couple of the ladies from her nail salon came to the house & give us manicures & pedicures. We got fun flowers with little rhinestones on our big toes :) When taking her to a radiation appointments. I noticed a piece of collage art that included paper doilies. It inspired this mixed media painting I started when I got home. She had a roll of embossed paper left over from a kitchen ceiling project and let me take it home to play with. This is how it turned out. I think she's sweet in her big fluffy slippers and I like how the tile effect in the paper makes a cross. I used the embossed wallpaper, layers of paint, some metallic paint & some antique medium. I made cards with it on Zazzle, click here to see and listed a print in my Etsy shop, click here to see. To place a bid on this piece with 10% going to American Cancer Society, click here!
