Growing with us

This is case No 18 from CSI
I have worked an interactive mixed media page as my best friend so perfectly puts it!
There is something to find underneath each petal.  For my evidence I have used an oversized flower.  I drew the flower and hand cut, sewed and inkd each petal.  They all move thanks to a tiny brad at the end.  I used leaves that I painted with Tim Holtz distress markers, it is crepe paper by Melissa Frances and believe me when I say it has a life of its own when you do what  i did, colored it in watercolors, it started to move and turn and I think it gave me a lot to play with in the end.


Hi!!! to all my readers

Here's the opened flower revealing some of his growing phases

I drew some tendrils coming out of the flower to write my testimony, it tells the story about how Solecito (little sun) came home as a newborn.  And how he has grown and given little Miss M a sense of responsibility and nurtured her inner motherhood.  She feeds it, changes him, plays with him.  It is a blessing to have him chirp around the house constantly.
Now you need to be a detective and find the full page here
Big hugs and thanks for being such awesome detectives, yours truly,
