I deliberated & cogitated over what to create for my Easter project this year
& settled on unashamedly stealing an idea from Joanna Urbani
& her gorgeous altered Scrabble tiles.
The initials of each themed tile together spell out a word or in her project,
the names of the delighted recipients. You can see them here.
I made mine out of mountboard inchies not Scrabble tiles
& mine spell out the word
Each one inch square of white mountboard was covered, front & back,
in patterned paper from K & Company designed by Brenda Walton.
The edges were sanded to add a little aged, distressed, shabby feel.
I found six beautiful faces on Blanca's blog, which I digitally remastered
(altered the colour, tone & resized).
After looking deeply into their eyes,
I gave each lady a description which I felt matched their mood.
To add a hint of colour & focal interest,
I used some Cherry Blossom flowers
leftover from my La Pashe decoupaged greeting cards.
These little beauties will stay in my desk throughout Easter
& raise a smile each time I look at them ...
