I finally had some time to play along with this fantastic challenge blog called,
This challenge blog has been tantalizing me every month since they started, but with deadlines looming and every day life, this is the first chance I have had to play.
This months mood board is graphic and striking
its lovely right?
My mind went so many places with this... I had a hard time choosing.
(Soo I might have to find time to create another project with it too!)
Here is the lovely optional sketch created by Jules.
so many possibilities!
And here is what I created:
I was inspired by the colors, I love black and white, I think it creates a bold look that captures an audience. I was also inspired by the image of the mother and daughter holding hands. I wanted to build on that feeling of having to let go of my own daughter, so that she can grow and become a strong woman. I also really liked the look of the lace and re-created that on my background.
The hidden journaling reads:
"My sweet girl, you look so beautiful and grown up. You look much older than you are and sometimes I forget that you are really still discovering yourself.
You have shown such maturity, that I sometimes wonder how old your soul really is.
I wonder how many days until you step away from me. We remain close, but I know that it is only a matter f time until you really grow up.
Until you decide to move out and support yourself.
You can do it Sweet girl, you can do anything you set your mind to.
But always remember as you step out into that bright beautiful world, searching for fulfillment,
I will always be here with arms wide open ready to welcome you home again.
Because no matter how old you are, or how far you travel,
You will always be My sweet girl, my baby, my joy."
I hope you enjoy my mood board inspired creation!
