Yes, it has been 2 years although it feels as fresh as yesterday. 2 years ago today, I was told at my 20 week ultrasound that my baby girl had no heart beat. It is something I documented very openly here on my blog and you can find it under October , 2011 archives on the right hand side of my blog.
This is a canvas that I made for me. No Design team work, no expectation .. just me. I wanted to express my thoughts about today and how I just cannot let it go yet. I hope I can paint over the "can't" one day and replace it with "I finally let it go" .. But I am not there yet..
I wanted to use the lovely stamps I have from Wiff Of Joy called Spirit of Nature designed by Stephanie Schutze because I wanted to make the 2 different butterflies look at each other. Doesn't it look like a mum and her child? When you look at this.. can you tell how hard it is for a mum to have to let go of her baby..?? I can.
I cannot get into the details of how I created this too much. I do not wish to treat it like any other creation but I thoroughly enjoyed using some gorgeous new colours from Lindy's Stamp Gang mists and embossing powders by Limor Webber caller Industrial Chic, together with some yellow Silks Glaze to contrast the colours and I do really want to create another one like this. So I am thinking I might do a video tutorial in the near future .
Thank you all for letting me share .
May you have a blessed day and I hope you are happy wherever you are .
I just want to leave you with this quote from one of the greats from Greek Ancient history, Plato...
He knew what he was talking about.. trust me.
