I love the hexagon trend and this has given me the chance to play big time! I wanted to work the photo and flipped the hexagon to accomodate the full face of my DD. That way I could fit her beautiful head piece made by her Grandmother and the vintage fan belonging to her that has already passed on to her. Her sweet face was when she saw her best frien's little brother Federico. I love seeing her dimple when she smiles, but as you know she doesn't love the camera, LOL!
There was this little piece of the paper from Prima that said "a gentle breeze a quiet laugh" couldn't be more perfect for the photo !!!!!
some of the hand cut hexagons were cut with a puch so they resembled lace and one was embossed with Tim Holtz folder. I made a gesso background using a Crafter's Companion mask and then painted it with Dylusions and ink. The swirls were cut with the Tim Holtz flourish. Then after distressing the edges I ran it through the sewing machine. Some fuzzy handcutting and here's the finished piece:
Thanks Fi for this beautiful inspiration, loved your sketch and I hope you like my interpretaion!
