A little therapy...

I've had a little time to play since I've been back from looking after Mum, I'm finding it difficult to concentrate on anything for long- think I'm still in 'Mum minding' mode - so I thought a bit of colouring therapy might help me relax - it did! I coloured up this beautiful Aurora Wings image using my copics, with pencils for added shading on her hair and the flowers. I used a sparkly gel pen on her jewellery, a small few gems added for extra sparkle. The black card base is frantaged around the edges and covered with some nylon mesh (a recycled fruit bag!) The flowers are mainly hand made, either stamped or die cut apart from the tall sprigs of purple flowers, I added a little tag with a stamped sentiment to finish. I'm now much more chilled, off to enjoy a glass of wine!( also very therapeutic!:)

Thanks for visiting, have a lovely evening.
