Mom, I love you..

To me not just today but every day is a Mother's Day...without her love, support and unconditional love I would not have my existence. She gave me a beautiful gift of life filled with love,care,her sacrifices,and so much more that my words will fail to describe her selfless being, her ever showering love on me. I can never repay her and never say enough thanks for what she has been doing for me...I pray to Almighty to grant her a very long life with good health and happiness always...Amen.
Here is my new mixed media creation for my Mom..a journal cum organizer which she can use to write and treasure it and everytime she sees it I want her to know how much I owe to her and how much I love,respect and adore her...a very very small gift but filled with gratitude and love for her..

Products used are...
A mini canvas mounted on hardboard
An image printout on paper
Tim Holtz Mini Stencils No. 25
Texture Paste
Heavy Gel
Simon says Stamp Mother's Day
Technique Tuesday Stamp Mama Love
Rangers Archival Inks ;Rose madder, Watering Can
Memento Ink Pads : Angel Pink,Desert sand,Love letter,London Fog,Pear Tart
Versafine Onyx Black
Art Alchemy Rose Gold Metallic Wax
Art Alchemy Lucky Emarald Antique Brilliance
Mullbery Flowers
Jute Rope
Leather Journal

Technique :
I first transferred the  image printout onto the canvas by applying heavy gel on the canvas and placing the printed side over it. Let it dry and then peel off the paper by wetting the fingertips and gently removing the paper off the canvas leaving the image being transferred onto the canvas.

Using the sentiments stamps, I stamped the texts over the image with Onyx Black Versafine Ink.

I used archival inks and memento inks to colour the blank canvas around the image.

Using stencils I applied texture around the sides of the canvas. let it dry. Used the waxes over it and around giving a vintage look to it.

Arranged the flowers and glued it with a glue gun.

Adhere the finished canvas onto the leather Journal.
