Mum | Words and Paintery


It was my first Mother’s Day without my mum this year and the first anniversary of her being gone is coming up at the end of June; I have found myself somehow absent-minded and distant recently. Even the creativity seems to have abandoned me…not much crafting has taken place over the last week or two. When I saw the May/June challenge on Words & Paintery blog, I knew it straight away – a page for my mum; the colours and ‘Light will guide my way home’ motto were just what I needed. As it happens, the challenge is also part of the sign Team call s0… here it is – my DT call submission at the same time, why not?

Words & Paintery Challenge May 2016

I enjoyed every second of working on this page, every layer of texture and colour. I think it is such a beautiful and fun way to remember my mum.And I know she’d love it, too.


Here are some close-ups.
