Art Every Day...days 2 and 3

This is my project for day 2 of AEDM.  It is a picture of my sister, my mother and myself from about 20 years ago.  It was my Mother's 50th birthday.  I love this picture because we were so happy that day and we are all so young!!  I look at it and can NOT believe that it was 20 years really feels like last week.
The page itself is pretty simple.  A watercolor background, a picture of us, some heart stickers, and my writing.
This is day 3.  The quote in the star is this: "If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life,your tears will prevent you from seeing the sun."
I LOVE this quote.  I feel like I am finally starting to see the sun again, even with the passing of my Father this June.  The grief I feel from his passing is more intense than from the others, but it is not present all the time like the others.  It is also different cause I know they are all together, and I have 4 AWESOME guardian angels!!
This page is a mask...I taped a chipboard star to the page and then did a watercolor wash.  Take off the star to reveal the journaling space.  Added some star and a butterfly stickers and some bling to jazz it up.

  1. You are making some really special family heirlooms! I made a recipe/scrapbook last year during AEDM. I gave it to my Mom for Christmas and she cried when she saw the page about her mom.
