Hope In The Palm Of Her Hands

At Divas D’Este you will find an abundance of CS with images of children, from cute to whimsical. For my latest DT artwork for Divas D’Este I am returning to the CS called “Angelic Girls“. Recently I shared a card made with a little girl with attitude, well that was also from the same CS.  The little girl today is a more gentle soul.For me, half the fun of working on a project is gathering the bits ‘n’ pieces, most will end up being surplus to requirements but I like having that selection before me. I gathered sheet music, old French text, lace, dried hydrangea blossoms, etc. The base is 6.5″ x 6.5″ which I covered with sheet music before layering all the elements. The Divas image was layered onto a letter which is from their ever useful French Script CS.
Lifting the bow you will see that underneath is very old French book text, dried hydrangea petals, lace and “Hope”.Using Word I created the title “She held hope in the palm of her hands”, ageing the cardstock prior to printing.Due to this year’s weather, too much rain, I was unable to dry any hydrangea blossoms which was a pity but at least I have my small stock from last year. I like when the colour fades.This week I will share some more Dezinaworld DT on Wednesday and on the 1st of October there will be a new challenge theme announced at The Stampsmith Challenge. In-between I will return with a scattering of projects. Have a lovely week. Lynne x

    Oh my gosh, Lynne, this is sooooo gorgeous! I love the image of the girl holding the dove. I once owned an all white show pigeon when I was a young girl and this made me think of him. He could no longer be shown at shows as he was past his prime but he made a wonderful pet for me before he flew off to mate with a common pigeon in the neighborhood…lol! Broke my heart to let him go but I was happy he found someone to spend the rest of his life with:)
