 It was a tough weekend.

My youngest sister passed away a year ago


I wanted to DO something, anything, that would honor


I decided to create an art piece using a piece of her jewelry as a focal


She loved all things vintage, especially art deco, so I started out with this:

 a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 inch plastic and a 5 x 7 canvas.

I transformed the plastic into this:

using alcohol inks, crackle medium and distress inks.

I then applied it to the canvas and built up the layers with
molding paste, acrylic paints, glaze and embellishments.  The 

flower was die cut from fabric paper I made using Beryl Taylor's


I love how it turned out and she would have, too.

Your sister would be proud and now you have a piece of art to display and to think of her whenever your eyes fall upon it. Very beautiful!
Thank you for sharing, Connie
