Scrap the Girls May Challenge



Mother's Day this month so the challenge is about mothers with a gorgeous mood board to use for
inspiration



http://scrap-the-girls.blogspot.com.au/


Rule #1.  The lady featured must be a Mother of some sort. It can be your mum, step-mum, adoptive mum, your husbands mum, your friend, your cousins friends sister or even you.  You can be an actual mum to a human child, a mum to a fur baby, a reptile baby or any other baby you have.  You can interpret the criteria how you like.  Remember the definition of a mother as described in the Urban Dictionary (this was my favourite definition): "The woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else. Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because mom's always know how to make it all go away. Even if you fight, know that she's just looking out for your best interests."

Rule #2: No boys in the photos.

I was inspired by the stick figures which made me think mixed media, the mother daughter

 moments in the mood board along with the blue square.



 First I  applied  texture paste through a scrap matts stencil onto a 12"x 12"  watercolor 

base page.

Then when it was dry I had a lovely time playing with  Tinby Designs Color Crush  powders and 

water.

The flowers were 49&Market and the thank you was from a Kaisercraft die.





the thank you is an expression of gratitude as I had had quite a bit of difficulty and heart ache 

before my daughter was born

Would love to see how you interpret the mood  board!

(sympathies to those whose mother may not be with them now, it must be so hard)
